Pimsleur Comprehensive Chinese

Pimsleur Comprehensive Chinese

Chinese or the Sinitic language can be considered a language or a language family and is originally the indigenous languages spoken by the Han Chinese in China. It forms one of the two branches of Sino-Tibetan family of languages. About one-sixth of the world’s population, or over one billion people, speak some form of Chinese as their native language. The identification of the varieties of Chinese as "languages" or "dialects" is controversial. As a language family Chinese has an estimated nearly 1.2 billion speakers; Mandarin Chinese alone has around 850 million native speakers, outnumbering any other language in the world. Spoken Mandarin Chinese is distinguished by its high level of internal diversity, though all spoken varieties of Chinese are tonal and analytic. There are between six and twelve main regional groups of Chinese , of which the most populous is Mandarin Chinese (c. 850 million), followed by Wu Chinese (c. 90 million), Min (c. 70 million) and Cantonese Chinese (c. 70 million). Most of these groups are mutually unintelligible, though some, like Xiang and the Southwest Mandarin Chinese dialects, may share common terms and some degree of intelligibility. The standardized form of spoken Chinese is Standard Mandarin based on the Beijing dialect. Standard Mandarin Chinese is the official language of the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China in Taiwan, as well as one of four official languages of Singapore. Chinese—de facto, Standard Mandarin— Chinese is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Of the other varieties, Standard Cantonese Chinese is common and influential in Cantonese-speaking overseas communities, and remains one of the official languages Chinese Hong Kong (together with English) and of Macau (together with Portuguese). Min Nan, part of the Min language group, is widely spoken in southern Fujian, in Taiwan (where it is known as Taiwanese or Hoklo) and in Southeast Asia (where it dominates in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines and is known as Hokkien).
