Why learn Mandarin?
Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to learn Mandarin and travel to China. Since then, I have accomplished both of these dreams. Learning Mandarin opens up the door for more than business opportunities, it allows the potential to create meaningful relationships, gain a greater perspective about the world, language, and people, and develop as an individual.
How is peace achieved in this diverse ever-changing world?
Peace is a process not an end destination. Yes, the goal is always to regain peace after conflict and hate but there will always be conflict to push us to improve. Peace can be an integral part of that process through understanding. Once there is loving understanding between cultures and peoples then we can coexist peacefully. This understanding and acceptance of differences creates a sense of constructive conflict that goes hand in hand with peaceful living.
What is communication and why is it important?

Communication could also be the key to solving these very problems. Learning about communication helps us understand each other as well as create change and improvement.
