Language study in US

May 9, 2007

From CBS Evening News

Only 50,000 students study Mandarin now; up from 5,000 in 2001. Small but growing fast.

5MM take Spanish, French and German, the top three studied languages.

Mandarin is becoming seen as a “more useful” language for the future of course.

There is a shortage of teachers.

Japanese language has lost much of its popularity in the US.
