It is increasingly important today, with China’s dramatic rise in economic and political presence, that Americans learn Mandarin Chinese. Chinese language learning is no passing fad, with over 1 billion people speaking Chinese, globalization of business, and international media. Moreover, RCS has been in existence for close to 40 years in Rockland County. RCS provides basic, intermediate and advanced Mandarin Chinese Classes.
