Although I am a native Chinese, I think Chinese language is not a good language tool to communicate information among people.
So when I found there are some people asking some Chinese language questions I was surprised. Why do they learn Chinese?
[Edit] The reason why I think Chinese language is not good at communicating is Chinese characters are not closely connected to oral sound. The fact that Chinese was used for thousands of years doesn't mean it is good at communicating.
I found another post said the people who learn Chinese mostly come from Russia. Then I understand.
