“If you want something done right do it yourself” or so the old saying goes. If you are interested in doing business in China, learning Chinese culture or history. You can get by using interpretors, English books etc. but to really understand whats going on you need to learn the language. This will give you the freedom to travel and mix with Chinese people without worrying about having a bilingual friend. China is a fascinating place with a booming economy. There are many opportunities for people here and you can get by without the language. With a knowledge of Chinese language you have unlimited potential.
Chinese is TOO difficult!
Learning Chinese is surprisingly easy. Like any language it takes time and effort but there are many characteristics that allow the beginner to dive in head first. When learning English you have to learn tenses for example eat, eaten, ate in Chinese there is just one word 吃 Chī. Also there is no messing around with plural words like there is in English. Cactus, cacti man,men etc… There is just one word for example dog is 狗Gǒu and dogs is 狗Gǒu.
