    No, not everyone should learn mandarin, what for.

    why? actually in China there are at least 2 languages, so if you're worried about invasion then it's only a 50/50 chance the attacking troops would understand you

    I think it might help you a lot.

    but not everyone need to study it.

    No, of course not.  Everybody should learn Esperanto (one schoolyear would do), and then some other language, seriously. see wikipedia Propaedeutic_value_of_esperanto

    Mandarin is just one of the " critical languages" [google that]. If everybody were to focus on Mandarin, there would still be a shortage of people speaking Swahili, Arabic, Indonesian, Russian, etc

    I suppose your sub-text is "China is taking over the world!"

    Not on my watch ...

    If it's going to be relevant to your life, I suppose you should.

    But if it's a language you'll never really need or use, then there's not much point (unless learning languages is a hobby for you).

    No .. Everybody doesn't have the same needs and / or preferences ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • pull  enough  strings … you'll  get  along  fine.
