Here to learn Mandarin
Foreigners are fuelling a surge in demand for Chinese language classes
You might have seen the Speak Mandarin Campaign video on TV recently, featuring cute kids of different nationalities telling stories in almost-perfect Mandarin.
More than just a plug for the campaign, the one-minute clip that has been telecast since March 17 also reflects a trend making its voice heard here.
More foreigners, from Vietnamese and Koreans to Germans and Swiss, are learning Mandarin.
