It's great that Mandarin is becoming more and more popular amongst non-Chinese according to the BBC article. I have even mentioned it in past blog entries. But I think it is gaining popularity for oversea Asians as well. I wonder what percentage are oversea Asians taking up Mandarin.
That reminds me, I think I will pick up level 1 this year (that is, after my wedding and honeymoon), and at least give something to do in the evenings. Afterall, there are plenty of courses, just need to find the right time.
