But the most important reason is that parents worry about their kids’ future, and send them to learn chinese language. It is undeniable that China is becoming the biggest market in the world for different products and services after its transition from a central- planned economy to a market-oriented one. Learning chinese language will help today students to be more successful in business in the next years.
