Time magazine has an article on how the world is learning Chinese to get ahead. I'd really like to see the success rate of the Mandarin school graduates. Besides, I still think the number of Western graduates of Chinese language will only be a trickle compared to the tidal wave of Chinese learning English. Think about supply and demand. Would you rather have one Western Chinese speaker when you can get five Chinese English speakers for the same price. Simple economics. Don't get your hopes up you guys studying Chinese!
