Why aren't there more people learning other Asian languages? (8)

I always find that when people are taking an Asian language class, they mostly take Japanese. Why aren't there more people learning other Asian languages? For languages such as Korean or Thai and others, I understand less people will learn it because in most colleges they don't offer these classes, but what about Chinese? Most colleges I know do offer chinese classes, yet there are so little people taking them compare to Japanese.

WHY???
