Chinese as a Second Language

According to my local paper, Chinese language instruction is hot:

    “I tell you, this Chinese fever is on again,” Wong-Avery said. “Everyone knows it will be one of the most used languages in the world.”

Even China is having trouble keeping up with demand. China says it needs 11,000 more language teachers for foreigners who visit seeking instruction. According to this article, “Last year, a record 110,844 students from 178 countries came to study at universities all over the country, a 43 percent increase from 2003.”
