You have 7 years to learn Mandarin

Fortune Article
Back in 2001 when the International Olympic Committee chose Beijing as the site of this summer's games, the event was meant to mark China's debut as a player on the global economic stage. But a recent study by the economist Angus Maddison projects that China will become the world's dominant economic superpower much sooner than expected - not in 2050, but in 2015.

Hmm, I've thought about going to China to teach English... maybe I should stay here and teach Chinese! I probably need to learn how to read & write Chinese first. :)
