I'm learning Chinese because I'm interested in China and I think it's becoming a very important country, so the language is more and more important to know. That's probably why others are learning it, too.

sophie - if you're seeing more & more foreigners learning it here on CD, well... we come here because we're interested in china, so you will see lots of us here! Other than the other students in my Chinese class I don't know many people learning it, though it is definitely increasing. I know one person learning it because they will adopt a Chinese baby and they want to make sure the baby knows her heritage.

I'm learning it because I'm interested in some Chinese culture, and I now think the language is fascinating. I love learning hanzi. And of course I'm learning it because I want to go there, but it's not just for utilitarian purposes, I think it suits me well, it feels good to speak it. Spanish doesn't go well with me, I feel awkward speaking it. French I like, German is uncomfortable, though I heard a song sung in German by a woman, it was very gentle & beautiful, not like all my other impressions of german.

I just put the german song on.:)
If I didn't know it was german I would generally guess "eastern european".
