I like a challenge, and it is a beautiful language.

It is the first language I have studied in which I have to concentrate on the tone of a given word in order for its meaning to be understood. The result is almost like conducting music.

汉字is both complex and efficient. It is full of meaning, yet lends itself easily to being speed-read.

The Chinese people also influenced me to continue studying it. Being careful not to generalize, I can say that the Chinese people I’ve interacted with were all very kind but not obsequious in their kindness. They were all very straight-talkers, a trait I value in people. Honestly, these interactions spurred me to study it in the first place, however shallow they may be.

Now I learn it so I can speak with my wife’s family.

我喜欢挑战,中文是一门美丽的语言

中文是我学习过的第一门我必须专心听语调的语言,要不然听不懂。感觉像是音乐

汉字是复杂的,含义丰富。阅读速度快。

在中国人的鼓励下,我孜孜不倦地学习中文

我接触过的中国人,友善又不失体面。

他们是有话就直说的那种,直言不讳。

这点我很喜欢

老实说,正是这点从一开始给了我学习中文的动力

Agreeing with many answers given here, I’d like to add another benefit in learning the Chinese language:

Learning the Chinese language or characters, also allows you to tap into other languages as well. For example Japanese, which uses Chinese characters in their language. Often using similar pronunciation as well.

这里的答案,很多我是认可的。

这里要补充一点学习中文的好处

就是,学会中文后,学习其他语言就方便了。比如日语,日语里有汉字。发音很多类似的。

Originally Answered: Why should one learn Chinese?
Because Chinese market is ridiculously big, if you’re not interested in making money in China, you don’t need to learn it unless you like this language itself.

中国市场太大了

不想在中国赚钱的话,那就没必要学习中文。

当然喜欢这门语言就另当别论

At first you need to know what is your reason to learn. If you just want to learn Chinese for fun, i advice you not to waste your time. Because it’s really hard to learn.
As everyone know, Chinese language is getting more and more importnat and popular. Someone’s desire about learning this language should be at the importance of Chinese, not at popularity.

首先要了解自己学习中文的动机。如果只是感兴趣,建议你别浪费时间了,因为中文太难学了。

众所周知,中文越来越重要了,越来越受欢迎了。

China is getting more and more powerful and influent over other countries day by day. By learning this language, you can get so many advantages. At least you can do some small trades, but advantages are way more than this:

1) If you’re studying international relations, politics or other social sciences, learning Chinese would make you a unique academician. Because you will learn Chinese culture at the same time while learning the language and this will give you a wide angle of view.

2) If you’re studying economics, trades, finance, etc., you could be an important man in your country, if you’re really good at economicss. Knowing the language of a world’s superpower, will give you important tips about whole economy in the world. And yet you could be a good economist.

3) If you’re doing businesses and trades, I strongly advice you to learn. Trade equals to China in the modern world. Even Apple is also producing its products in China, because China gives some incentives to the foreign companies and reduce their taxes. No matter how big your company or capital is, you still have plenty of ways to shake the pagoda tree. But you must know Chinese customs.

中国越来越强大了,越来越富裕了。

学会中文,能带来很多好处。

至少你可以做一些小本贸易。当然好处远不止这些

1、如果你学的是国际关系、政治等社会科学,会中文能让你成为一位独特的学者。

学习中文的同时能了解中国文化。视角就会更广泛。

2、如果学的是经济学、贸易学、金融,会中文的话,而且擅长经济学,你就是自己国家一位重量级人物了。

会说超级大国的语言,你就对世界经济有更深的了解,就能成为一位优秀的经济学家。

3、如果是经商或贸易,强烈建议你学习中文。

现代世界,贸易等同于中国。就连苹果公司也在中国组装产品呢。
