Chinese Language

After the morning debacle in Economics (Where the Prof almost ate me for lunch during the Case discussion) , it was a well spent evening.

Everyone says China & India are the emerging Asian tigers.One of the main reasons for my doing an Asia-Pac MBA was to learn Chinese and Business in China.I had approached the Chinese heritage centre at my university and they magnanimously allowed me to sit in the " Elementary Chinese" Language Class . So started learning Chinese since yesterday.Learnt the Chinese numbers and a bit of writing in yesterday's class.Chinese is by far the most difficult language I have encountered till now because the written alphabets are so difficult to write (Its almost like Jaangiri or murukku pizhiyardhu ! ) .

The class was very interactive and they even taught me "Twinkle twinkle little star (Not exactly, but same tune)" in Chinese ! Ha ha , isn't it fun to learn rhymes in a B-school and that too after having worked for 7 years !
