Why Learn Chinese? 

The Chinese languages are spoken by more than one billion people worldwide, and are the languages of the Han people, which is the largest ethnic group in China and the Republic of China. About one-fifth of the world’s population, or over 1 billion people, speak some form of Chinese as their native language, and Mandarin Chinese alone has around 850 million native speakers, outnumbering any other languages in the world. Standard Mandarin is the official language of the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China (Taiwan), as well as one of four official languages of Singapore. Chinese—de facto, Standard Mandarin—is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

Mt. SAC offers beginning and intermediate, university-transferable Chinese language courses that include both verbal and written learning, taught by native speakers in both English and Chinese.
