The Chinese Language Facts
The Chinese language is made up of Standard Chinese or Mandarin and the numerous Chinese dialects spoken throughout China and the world. About 1.3 billion people in the world speak a dialect of Chinese as their native tongue. And Mandarin is spoken by approximately 960 million people. Mandarin is the official language used in China and Taiwan as well as one of the official languages used in Singapore.
Native speakers of Chinese describe the various dialects as a single Chinese language. However, the dialects are diverse and belong to a language family similar to the Romance languages such as French and Spanish.
The written form of Chinese known as logograms, are used in Japanese writing 漢字 and occasionally in Vietnamese writing. In Standard Chinese, the simplified form 汉字 is used while the traditional form 漢字 is used in Taiwan and Hong Kong. The simplified written form is used in Mainland China, Malaysia and Singapore.
The Chinese language has influenced western languages such as English and Spanish as well as Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese languages. In Japan, about 35% of the words in entertainment magazines, more than 50% of the words in newspapers and 60% of the words in science magazines are made up from Sino-Japanese words. In Spanish, for example, soja means soy which came from the Chinese word 醬油.
