Why bother learning Chinese since it is reputedly one of the most difficult languages to master? Well, it is simply the most widely spoken language in the world. Once English used to be considered as the language everybody needed to learn but today the world has changed.

These days, we need to realise that Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world. Further, it is spoken by over 1.2 billion people, which highlights the importance of learning Chinese for professional and cultural reasons.

Chinese lessons for your work

Why should you consider learning Chinese for work when you already have a good level of English? Because learning this language will allow you to pursue career opportunities the world over.

The largest companies of today need partners who can speak this language. So it goes without saying that learning this language will add weight to your CV.

Take a course in Chinese for travel

Not only will you get a considerable professional advantage, learning Chinese will also enrich your cultural horizons. It will be useful when travelling to China and other eastern countries where it is spoken.

Every year, more and more tourists visit China, with an average of 500,000 French visitors to China every year.

Learning Chinese as a challenge

You could also choose to learn Chinese as a challenge or simply out of curiosity. Chinese is a unique language which uses characters in written form (the logographic units used in written Chinese), very different from the ‘classical’ Romance languages we are familiar with in Europe.
