Youth learning Mandarin

Why learn Mandarin? 

  • Mandarin is the most widely spoken language in the world and the most spoken language in Canada after English & French.




  • Chances are you know someone who can speak Mandarin or wanted to understand Chinese culture better!

  • There are also cognitive benefits of learning Mandarin that can help benefit & support the learning of other subjects such as music & mathematics!



  • Lastly, with China playing a significant part of the global economy, being able to understand and connect in Mandarin can help bridge gaps and foster new relationships.
