Simplified and Traditional Pro and Con

A customer E-Mailed me with:

I am interested in getting my kids to learn mandarin but not sure on whether to start them on Simplified Mandarin or Tradional Mandarin.


And my reply:


Here is a blog post I wrote on the pro's and con's of each.

The comments are also useful.

I try to be non-judgmental, since there are positives to both. Most US schools are now teaching Simplified Chinese. I have a personal preference for Traditional (I like the idea of a system, but Simplified is what is used in China.
Sincerely,

Ray
