It does not have to replace it!

No, as well as our own language, we learn English as a second language.

This gives us a lot of advantages over people who only know English.

Helong,

It's clear that you don't understand the dynamics of language learning or the difficulty speakers of non-tonal languages have in acquiring a tonal language. In any case, if current trend ...


There was a time when Chinese students had to learn the Russian language,   then  the French language,  and now,  the English language.

To be honest,  I think that it is a waste of time to learn English.

When China overtakes the United States and the Chinese language become more important than the English language around the world,   Chinese kids will no longer be learning English.   
Instead,  it will be the American kids who will have to learn to speak the Chinese language.

No its not a waste of time.

We are in transition as a nation and so need to have as many advantages as possible.
Its a good idea to learn a few languages so that we can talk to these people in their own language and make a lot of money.
The time may come when we don't need them or their language.
I am Chinese and Proud of it!
