Why should my child learn Mandarin Chinese?

With the rise of China as the world’s economic power house, there are so many reasons for your child to start learning Mandarin Chinese as early as possible. Not only is she/he learning a very important culture and building on her/his intercultural competence, it is also a proven fact that her/his grasp of a language is at its best when she/he begins to learn it at an early age. Finally, young children who learn multiple languages tend to display later in life a high level of performance and strong skills in different areas.
