In a recent question and answer section Facebook guru Mark Zuckerburg busted out some pretty good Mandarin.
I am not sure why that was so surprising, seeing as his wife is Chinese, and that he’s worth like a gazillion dollars and has time to learn it.
There are plenty of celebrities who speak multiple languages. Maybe these other celebrities who speak Chinese will surprise you, or maybe they won’t, considering Mandarin Chinese is one of the fastest growing languages in the world. It is hailed as the language of the future (though I have to point out the irony of calling an ancient language futuristic).
Did you know that these celebrities speak Chinese?
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that more and more people are learning to speak Chinese, as almost 1 billion people speak it worldwide.
As for me, I’ve tried over the years to learn, but still don’t speak too well. “Wo shuo de bu hao.”
