Welcome to the Mandarin language – and to Mandarin language courses with Euroasia!
Why learn Mandarin?
- In terms of native speakers, Mandarin is the number one language worldwide.
- Over the last hundred years, China has been a country of revolutions, and the current economic revolution is perhaps as important as any: never before in human history have so many people seen such a rapid transformation in their economic fortunes. China is now set to become the world’s leading manufacturing nation, and perhaps one day its biggest economy.
- China is a hugely important trading partner for New Zealand, with many New Zealand companies considering how to take advantage of existing links and develop new ones.
- Opportunities for Mandarin-speaking Kiwis are likely to grow enormously in the future, as the need for New Zealand companies to have a presence in China grows.
- There are many opportunities now for Kiwis to teach English in China.
- China is home to one of the world’s oldest civilisations, exceptionally rich in architecture and art. Over the centuries, it has also made huge contributions to science and technology.
- China is a fascinating country to visit, huge and diverse, its attractions ranging from the Great Wall to the Himalayas – via some megacities along the way!
- Chinese cooking is world-renowned, and knowledge of a little Chinese may help you to understand more of what you eat!
- Many Mandarin-speaking tourists already visit New Zealand every year, and this number will almost certainly grow in the future.
- New Zealand, of course, has a large Chinese community, and there are plenty of opportunities to learn more about Chinese language and Chinese culture here.
