导学:在为四六级、雅思、托福而头疼?那你能想象老外们学汉语会是什么表情吗?事实上,越来越多的老外正为了和中国人做生意去学习汉语还有中国的文化,比如在中国做生意的头条定律-拉关系。

部分听力原文参考:

From VOA Learning English, this is the Economics Report in Special English.

English is the international language of business. But an increasing number of American companies that do business in China or with Chinese companies are having their workers learn Mandarin.

Michael Cheng is a Taiwanese-American Internet entrepreneur and property developer. He is also in the business of teaching Chinese. Mr. Cheng is president and founder of the Mando Mandarin Online School. The school is based in New York and uses teachers in China to teach over webcams.

"China over the past few years very quickly has already become the world's second-largest economy. And, you know, it's just common business savvy. If China's got over three trillion dollars in reserves now, so if you want to do business or connect with the fastest-growing country in the world, it might make sense to make an effort to engage the people in their own language, as understanding of their language and culture goes a long way in building strong relationships -- especially with the Chinese."
