One of my closest mates is Chinese Australian born first time
I heard her speak Cantonese with her parents I was so confused! Did not even know she could speak it! I'm probably taking classes in Mandarin next year at University. It will help me with my business bachelor

Seems a lot of people are keen to learn Japanese too! Heard it takes roughly 22,000 hours to become fluent for an adult english speaker.
