Sasha Obama is learning Chinese

Sasha Obama is all play here with her sister Malia, but 9 year-old Sasha is serious about her future. Young Sasha is learning Chinese at her private grade school, the Sidwell Friends School, and was eager to put it into practice when Chinese President Hu Jintao was in town visiting her father, the President. Sasha is one of the thousands of American children now learning Chinese in schools. We aren’t the only ones that think Chinese is the best language to learn. It appears some parents, including the Obamas, realize we cannot neglect China in future business relations and it is important for children to begin learning not only the language, but about the culture and traditions of the world’s largest nation.

In your opinion, what is the most beneficial language for children to learn today?
