Second language is what?

English is first worldwide language, and the second is what?

Spanish

Wrong it should be Chinese even you want to learn them :bigsmile:

Chinese: about 1.5 billion.
Spanish and English: about 0.5 billion for each.

Outside China and its surrounding countries, Chinese is not widely used. Outside Iberia and Latin America, maybe 200 million use Spanish (including US, Southeast Asia, etc.) but it is changing rapidly.

Maybe just maybe

Not only in the US, they are available in Europe as well as in Russia.
And it’s rather logical when thinking of cheap Chinese labour.

Let’s be realistic. Growth is not that simple. The US will become 50 Trillion Dollar economy sometime during the 21st century. Surpassing the US economy for China means

  1. in terms of income per capita
    or
  2. in terms of national income?

What will the 1.5 billion Chinese have to do to create 50 trillion or 250 trillion dollars of new wealth every year? Currently, China produces only 1 trillion even though the recent growth was relatively easy because Japan and other countries were willing to move production capacity to China. Reaching 10,000 USD GNP per capita won’t be that difficult for China during the early 21st century though. According to CIA’s World Factbook 2002, China has half of the buying power of the United States now.

Sorry, I forgot about it. Better send it to glsuperpyz. :slight_smile:

BTW, I talked to him and his friends (one Chinese and one Japanese) with MSN several hours ago (evening here then.)

I thought the list was Spanish, English, Chinese…
