TO GO WITH AFP STORY "Lifestyle-Asia-education-Singapore-China,FEATURE" by Simin WANG
This photo taken on November 8, 2011 shows Happy Rogers (R), the daughter of US investor Jim Rogers, discussing about her Mandarin examination paper with her classmate at Nanyang Primary School in Singapore. As far back as 25 years ago, Rogers already believed China would be the next economic superpower and young people the world over should prepare for the future by learning Mandarin. Now 69, the billionaire had a chance to practise what he preached when he moved in 2007 to Singapore with his wife Paige Parker, 43, after visiting Hong Kong and Shanghai in search of an ideal place to bring up his children.
