Chinese: Your passport to new career opportunities

Chinese is spoken by 1.2 billion people today, making it one of the most useful languages to learn. It is one of the 5 official languages of the United Nations, and one of the 7 languages critical to national security.

A new star in the global economy, China has become one of the largest markets in the world, its development creating business opportunities of a lifetime. With China as Florida's largest trade partner in the world outside of Latin America and with Florida being the biggest transshipment base for Chinese products to Latin America, local business opportunities are abundant, stimulating the need for local professionals to learn Chinese.
