Chinese is logographic and ideographic language, which is a completely different linguistic system from alphabetic languages such as English, French and Urdu. Therefore, learning Chinese stimulates cognitive activities and enhances comprehensive abilities for non-native speakers. Some kids suffering from reading and spelling disorders might also find it easier to read and write in Chinese as the characters indicate meanings instead of pronunciation.
