Grade Schoolers Learning Chinese symbolic of World Changes

Minneapolis schools are offering Chinese after school for grade schooler in Grades 1-5. The teacher is probably one of the 63 or so Chinese Teachers from China, since there is a shortage of Chinese teachers in the US. The program is being met with interest by students.

If your local school does not offer Chinese, here are some tips for having your child Learn Chinese. And some help if you need to have the Discussion on Why Learn Chinese.

Interesting quote from Fund manager and investment author Jim Rogers who hired a Chinese nanny soon as his daughter was born: The 19th century was the century of the United Kingdom. The 20th century was the century of the U.S. The 21st century will be China's.

I don't 100% agree with that quote. I may be biased since I was born in the USA. China definitely will have a greater presence in the world both economically and politically in the 21st century than the 20th century. It's amazing the amount of progress that has been made since Deng's modernization started in 1978. The amount of people who are no longer living in poverty. Over 200 Million people in China are no longer in Poverty (declined from 260 Million to 50 Million in 1997), and China has become the manufacturing hub of the world. Huge change from where China has been for say the last 200 years economical and political presence in the world. There are considerable challenges for China to continue the growth including environmental, political, economic, and social.
