Yes, you should.
Why? There are a lot of reasons that apply generally to English speakers.
Learning a language like Mandarin represents a significant cognitive enhancement. We know that learning a second language improves cognitive powers like attention and task-switching, as well as decreased cognitive decline.[1][2] It's reasonable to imagine that these benefits would be increased by learning a language as different and complex as Chinese. Indeed, learning Chinese seems to be connected with mathematical ability and coordinated use of the temporal lobes on both sides of the brain. [3]

可以学的。为什么呢。对母语为英语的人来说,学中文的理由有很多。

学中文是一种加强认知的重要方式。学第二门语言能提高认知能力,如提高注意力,减少智力衰退。

可以想象,这些好处也会通过学习不同的、与汉语一样复杂的语言得以提升。世界上,学汉语似乎与数学能力、大脑两侧颞叶的协调使用有关。

Mandarin gives you access to 1.4 billion humans' worth of business, learning, and cultural education opportunities. It's hard to comprehend what this means. But learning Chinese gives you access to more people than any other language you could learn (in large part because so few Chinese can speak English for real communication).
Learning Chinese will confer prestige. Nobody's that impressed if you speak Spanish. But Chinese! That language is so difficult, they will say. How did you even start learning something so incomprehensible?

普通话带给你与14亿人做生意、学习、文化交流的机会。很难理解这意味着什么。比起学习其他语言,汉语让你接触更多的人(很少中国人能真正熟练使用英语交流)。

学汉语能带来声望。如果说西班牙语,没人会觉得你厉害。但中文!那种语言那么难,他们会说:你怎么会学这么难以理解的语言呢?

Learning Chinese will broaden your mind. Chinese culture is really different from that of the United States and Europe. Very few movies (even those about China) really touch the depths of the culture. By learning a language that is so different from English, you open your mind to new ways of thinking that you wouldn't encounter simply from learning something like French or German.
China is a rising force in the world. If your only exposure to China is through Western media, you're going to have a very poor understanding of the country, where it is going, and the attitudes of its leaders and people. I for one think it's kind of important to understand at least a little about what will soon be the world's largest economy.

学汉语会开阔你的思想。中国文化与欧美文化完全不同。很少电影(即使关于中国)真正深入中国文化中。通过学习这门与 英语不同的语言,你能打开新思路,这点很难从学法语、德语中获得。

中国是世界正崛起的力量。如果你只通过西方媒体接触中国,你将很不了解这个国家,它前进的方向、领导人和其人民的态度。我认为,至少了解一些这个崛起为世界第一大经济体的国家很重要。

 

Mikhail Kotykhov, Speak to people, not flashcards. It's a lot more exciting. :)

No, you shouldn't.
"Learning" Chinese through vocabulary exercises, flashcards with characters, grammar books brings zero results.
It's a hobby for some, I understand, but it brings no improvement to real-life communication skills.
Chinese, like probably any other language, is a context-based one. People speak it, they don't communicate just by showing flashcards to each other. What they say is often not as important as how they say it and in which situation do they need to say it.

不,你不该学中文。通过词汇练习、教学卡、语法书等“学”汉语,没有用的。对现实生活交流技巧没什么帮助。

就像任何其他语言一样,中文是基于上下文理解的。

If you want to speak Chinese, you need to start speaking it from the first minute of your learning practice.
Don't waste your time and money on trying to learn Chinese. Find friends in China willing to learn your language and start communicating with them instead. Forget fancy characters, any grammar rules - just listen to what people are saying, repeat it and little by little learn to make your own phrases.

如果你想说中文,要从学习的第一分钟开始讲中文。别浪费金钱时间去学中文。在中国找愿意帮你的人,开始和他们交流。忘记花哨的词汇和语法规则吧,听人们在说什么,多重复,一点点地学,然后自己造句。
