On BIV Today…

If you’ve considered learning Chinese for business, you may want to consider learning Cantonese over Mandarin – or both. A new research project from the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada explores language trends in global Chinese communities. Erin Williams, senior program manager, and Justin Kwan, project specialist, share preliminary insights from Greater Vancouver, where the Cantonese language is seeing a revitalization. Both share why this matters from a cultural and business perspective.
