    Learn it through the net at your own time and pace.

    I've heard Beiching Uni has a course in the net with exam centers at all levels all over Asia if you are interested in certificates of proficiency.

    With speakers attached to a PC, you can learn the sound and repeat after it beside learning to read and write Chinese.

    Preferably at night as I have to work in the morning. Maybe some kind of executive class program?

    I understand, almost like Peranakan Straits Chinese. Most of my colleagues from Malaysia same, can speak dialects like Cantonese, Hokkien, at school learnt Malay, but cannot read/write Chinese.

    Many Malaysian Chinese are now senting their children to Chinese primary schools. Some go on to join the Chinese Secondary schools.

    In my last visit there 2 years ago, I've found the schools kids are now learning Chinese at a more difficult level than during my time.

    Still no too late. Just learn to speak .. writing and reading need a lot of self discipline.

    Once you understand Chinese, there is no end to the Chinese 5000 years culture.

    If you have a maid, change to China maid (if you can) and she can teach you in the morning, during work (call her to check if everything is ok), and after work too...
