Mensagem:  «I've been told that it's increasingly important to learn Chinese Mandarim, that is, if you want to get ahead in business.» Yes and the Chinese have been told it is important to learn English if they want to get ahead. Millions and millions are learning it. You will be probably find that in business you will meet up with Chinese who have also studied English. It is better to become very good in English than to stumble in Mandarim. Unless you become fluent, your Chinese guy will probably prefer you to speak in English. By the way I just read a book about China and in it is mentionned, for example, that boiled water and boiling water are the same. Suppose you want to make sure that the water you drink is boiled you have to spend half hour explaining.
