Why It Can Be Better to Learn Chinese as an Adult (Part I)
The Chinese language is now one of the most popular with language students all over the world. There are some very good reasons for this, as the Chinese economy is booming, there are Chinese immigrant populations all over the world and it is a hugely attractive place to visit as a tourist.
