Chinese is a fascinating and extremely rich language. It is the most spoken language on earth and is becoming increasingly important thanks to China's economic boom. These two reasons alone should be enough to convince you to want to learn Chinese and maybe even take the HSK Exam!




Why Learn Chinese?

There are numerous reasons to learn Mandarin Chinese, the most spoken language in the world:


Learn Chinese out of interest for the Chinese Language, Culture and Customs

why learn Chinese

To fully appreciate the Chinese people and their culture, it is necessary to learn Chinese. Just like many other languages, the Chinese language contains a lot of words and expressions that reflect traditions, values and ideas that have been passed on from generation to generation. By learning the language, you'll also develop an understanding of its structure and the culture behind it.


Improve your CV and get ahead in the business world

Since China has become a major player in the world economy, the demand for experienced professionals with Chinese language skills has increased dramatically. For people taking their first steps into the job market, it is important to differentiate themselves from the crowd. Learning Chinese will provide you with an excellent chance to get a step ahead and attract the attention of future employers.

In order to enhance your CV, you should think about taking HSK exam, the standardized international Chinese proficiency test for non-native speakers. This exam proves your skills in applying Chinese language either to personal or professional life: there's no doubt that taking the HSK can boost your career. 


Challenge yourself

learn Chinese in ChinaFor most western people, Chinese is not an easy language to learn and it can certainly be seen as an academic and linguistic challenge. Although Chinese does not have conjugations, declinations, articles, tenses and so on, its writing system and 4 tones of pronunciation are very challenging for Westerners. It's definitely a challenge to learn Chinese, but with the right method, anybody can do it!



Mandarin Chinese is Asia’s future lingua franca (common language)

Although English is still the most commonly used language for business communication in Asia, this is slowly but surely changing. As China replaces the US as the main trading partner of most East and Southeast Asian countries, Mandarin Chinese will play an increasingly important role as a language for business communication. Especially in countries like Japan and Korea, and also in Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Malaysia, Chinese is slowly becoming the most popular foreign language. If you take up the challenge to learn Chinese, you will not only be able to communicate with Chinese natives, but more and more with other Asians who decided to learn Chinese as a foreign language themselves.
