People in the outside world think that the Chinese people speak Chinese, but it would interest you to know that the Chinese people actually speak Mandarin! At Language Command, we teach you Mandarin.

The largest country in East Asia, China is also the most populous country. One of the very first civilisations in the world, she was the foremost economic power more than 2000 years ago. Four great ancient inventions are attributed to China - gun powder and fireworks, the Compass, paper making and moveable type which allowed large volumes of manuscripts, books, art and painting to be committed to paper for the first time in the world.

The famous silk route begins in China and passes through India on its way to Mesopotamia and the Horn of Africa. In the old days, this route was extensively used by traders of all nationalities to carry fine good to and fro from Western Asia to China.

Knowing the language enables you to communicate effortlessly with the locals, find jobs with ease and in a million small ways, it makes life so much more comfortable, fulfilling and interesting!

Funfact: The Chinese people are also refered to as the 'coconut' people - guess why?

Hard and abrasive outside but soft and sweet inside!
