When US President Donald Trump showed a video of his granddaughter singing and reciting poems in Mandarin to President Xi Jinping during Trump's visit to China, it became a hit on social media and prompted an outpouring of affection from many in China.

Besides Ivanka Trump, many wealthy parents are also pushing their young children to learn Mandarin, including Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, and Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, according to Business Insider.

Now days, it is seems like many more people are learning Chinese. I think first reason is that China is ever growing and is becomming a important player on the global market. If China continue to grow, then it won't be so surprising that many people can speak basic Chinese in the near future. So, How popular is learning Mandarin Chinese in your country?
