For years, Americans have been going overseas to teach English. China has caught on the same idea sending volunteers around the world to teach Chinese. It’s kind of a way to send love to get love back. Most likely a smarter way towards world domination than starting fights everywhere. There is an article in Wired magazine about it.

And in the US, the Department of Defense awarded a grant to support the expansion of Chinese language program in Oregon. Kids can learn Chinese all the way from kindergarten through college. It’s not a bad thing overall but why is the money coming from the Defense department? Shouldn’t it be more appropriate to have the Education department involved? But we all know where our tax dollars went these days so we have to take what we can get.
