Mandarin Chinese is the number one spoken language in the world. Indeed, there are roughly 882 million people in the world who claim Mandarin as their native or primary language according to the CIA Fact Book, and this number is exponentially growing. Mandarin is spoken throughout most of northern and southwestern China, in Singapore, in Malaysia, in Taiwan, in Sydney, Australia and along the West Coast of the United States — particularly in California. In light of the trade relationship between the United States and China and the strengthening position of China in the global economy, the ability to speak Mandarin is increasing in importance and value.
