    Thanks for the information!
    Just a quick question. Recently, Philippines has been rapidly improving relations and cooperating with China in terms of trade and commerce, political relationship…etc.
    Is learning Mandarin Chinese in the Philippines becoming a trend as well?

    • Speedy Course

      Hi Roy, we believe your assertion is correct. There are Chinese communities and businesses in the Philippines, so knowledge of the Chinese language has always been a big advantage. Also, Chinese tourists are the second biggest group of visitors to the Philippines, so even PH immigration officers are now being taught conversational Mandarin to address the language barrier.
