I’m curious why you decided on Chinese.
There are a lot of languages to choose from; it’s easy to get lost in the choice and not dedicate yourself to one. I’ve jumped between Spanish, Japanese, Latin, and now I’m on Chinese.
In addition, from my mild experience, Chinese does seem more difficult than the alternatives out there.
So what’s your reason?
My current reason is the amount of speakers. There’s (last I checked) over 1.3 billion Mandarin speakers. That’s an entire different world that I have little to no clue about.
