1) learning languages is healthy for mind and brain alike.

2) chinese's nice to hear and has cool characters.

3) it is one of the languages most spoken throughout the entire World.

4) I like it.

Because being an overseas person who is also a Chinese but happen to be not able to speak Chinese is intolerable. When I meet my old relatives there, they would laugh at me, they think I'm a freak, and I can't bear it anymore so I have no other options but to learn Chinese, a real Chinese language.

Great question, Dana.

Before starting to teach on italki, if someone had suggested I would one day study Chinese, my response would’ve been that they were crazy. (Hmmm… actually, people did make that suggestion, and I’m afraid I might have answered candidly. sorry;))  Thanks to italki, I’ve been blessed with the privilege of helping a lot of Chinese people to take their English to the next level. It’s a real inspiration to witness their progress, and I’m happy to say that it’s motivated me in my own studies.

For several reasons.....

• I want to become an interpreter so Chinese is a very good language to learn for my career.

• It's a very good language to learn for business.

• I love to learn difficult languages

• I like the Chinese language and want to visit China

• I love to travel and learning a language (that is spoken by a large amount of people) makes traveling so much easier
