How has your interest in Chinese Language & culture affected your lifestyle.?

Before I started learning Chinese my life lackluster. Chinese had introduce in my field a whole new avenue. I had friend I would never had had, I awaken taste in fashion, design,food that would other wise stayed dormant.

The world is big, it's exciting, only if we open to the experiences it has to offer.I have been studying Chinese for three years, and I  have to say my progress in the language isn't that great, but the progress it had made in my life is substantial.

Now Most of my friends are Chinese. My apartment is all Chinese themed. I'm a member of an Chinese church, I work part-time in a chinese restaurant just for the sake of being around Chinese. My girlfriend is Half Chinese and Cambodian. So yes my lifestyle has really been enriched all thanks to this little hobby of mine.

Why I am learning Chinese


My motivation for learning Chinese is that I am gambling on Mandarin becoming an important language in Australian schools. Learning Chinese might let me teach again in my prefered area of teaching and learning LOTE. At this point in time LOTE teaching jobs across Australia are rare. At the moment LOTE in Australian schools is a contentious, emotive and somewhat political issue. So in some whys I feel I am taking quite a risk investing in the expectation that LOTE will have a place or be taken seriously in Australian schools again.  However, I remain optimistic.

I have to say that it have completely changed my life. I moved to China, live with my Chinese boyfriend and most of my life is in Chinese. Sometimes it feels like that my whole life is going around learning Chinese! That's quite true because it's also my major.

My life would be very different if I hadn't been interested in Chinese language and culture. Totally different.
