About Mandarin Chinese

traditional Chinese is a category of related Chinese dialects spoken across most of northern and south-western China. When taken as a separate language, as is often done in academic literature, the Mandarin dialects have more speakers than any other language.

In English, Mandarin can refer to either of two distinct concepts:

* to Standard Chinese or Standard Mandarin (Putonghua/Guoyu/Huayu/Hanyu), which is based on the particular Mandarin dialect spoken in Beijing. Standard Mandarin functions as the official spoken language of the People's Republic of China, the official language of the Republic of China (Taiwan), and one of the four official languages of Singapore. ‘Chinese’ — in practice Standard Mandarin — is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.
* to all of the Mandarin dialects spoken in northern and south-western China. This group of dialects is the focus of this article.

In everyday use, Mandarin refers usually to just Standard Mandarin (Putonghua/Guoyu). In its broader sense, Mandarin is a diverse group of related dialects, some less mutually intelligible than others. It is a grouping defined and used mainly by linguists, and is not commonly used outside of academic circles as a self-description. Instead, when asked to describe the spoken form they are using, Chinese speaking a form of non-Standard Mandarin will describe the variant that they are speaking, for example Sichuan dialect or Northeast China dialect, and consider it distinct from ‘Standard Mandarin’ (putonghua); they may not recognize that it is in fact classified by linguists as a form of ‘Mandarin’ in a broader sense. Nor is there a common ‘Mandarin’ identity based on language; rather, there are strong regional identities centred on individual dialects, because of the wide geographical distribution and cultural diversity of its speakers. Moreover, it is of note that despite its wide use in the Occident, most native Mandarin speakers are reluctant to recognize the term 'Mandarin', since the word does not reflect any Chinese origin. Instead, they would rather call the language simply 'standard Chinese'.

From an official point of view, there are two versions of Standard Mandarin, since the Beijing government refers to that on the Mainland as Putonghua, whereas the Taiwanese government refers to their official language as Kuo-yü (Guoyu in pinyin).

Technically, both Putonghua and Guoyu base their phonology on the Beijing accent, though Putonghua also takes some elements from other sources. Comparison of dictionaries produced in the two areas will show that there are few substantial differences. However, both versions of ‘school’ Standard Mandarin are often quite different from the Mandarin dialects that are spoken in accordance with regional habits, and neither is wholly identical to the Beijing dialect. Putonghua and Guoyu also differ from the Beijing dialect in vocabulary, grammar, and usage.

It is important to note that the terms ‘Putonghua (The Common Language)’ and ‘Guoyu’ refer to speech, and hence the difference in the use of simplified characters and traditional characters is not usually considered to be a difference between these two concepts.

 


The Pimsleur Language Learning System  is an sounds language acquisition process derived by Paul Pimsleur that emphasizes proactive engagement over rote memory. During the courses, the audience will repeat keywords spoken by indigenous presenters and constructs new words by inference. As new keyword phrases are revealed, the audience is persuaded to recall earlier important phrases. The requests for any furnished word or phrase are over time spread out in ever-increasing time periods. During 1963 and Nineteen Seventy One, Dr Paul Pimsleur created Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Twi program while instructing at the UCLA The Pimsleur lanuage learning system targets on practice in conversing, at the same time as abilities in reading. These two elements are perfected using 30-minute tutorials, which are carried out until a score of at least eighty% awareness is obtained before moving forward to the next session. Going through the classes, students pay attention to native people of the specific spoken language as they speak sentences in simultaneously the foreign language, combined with the student’s main language. At graduated time intervals, individuals are prompted to repeat a word or phrase shortly after listening to the presenter. As the individual advances through the package, the period increases, as does the magnitude of the lexicon. The programs are made up of thirty-minute everyday training sessions and shorter reviewing modules
