    Comparisons

    The Chinese Language

    Chinese is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. It’s interesting to note that when documents are translated into different languages, the documents translated to Chinese are the thinnest copies among all of them. This is because there are much less characters in Chinese than in other languages around the world.

     

    History

                              

     

     

     

    The Chinese Language

    Chinese characters were written on animal bones in 2000 BC.

     

    This language has existed for thousands of years and is of great vitality. Chinese people who speak completely different dialects can read and write the same characters and communicate with Putonghua (Mandarin).

    Pictographic Characters

    The Chinese Language

    Chinese is basically a language of pictographs. But don`t be afraid of those pictographic characters, they can help you understand and remember the meaning of a word. Take a look at “”(meaning one) in Chinese. It looks like a stick lying on the ground, doesn`t it? Does the Chinese character “”(meaning person) look like a man standing on his two legs? Maybe you will remember these two characters after knowing their stories. You`ll learn more interesting stories down the road.

    More Characters

    The Chinese Language

    Let`s see another example. The word sun was previously written as and over time has gradually developed into 日(ri), for the convenience of writing and printing. The same is true for the word moon, which developed from the symbol and later became 月(yue). The characters日and月still have traces of their original forms so it`s easy to learn and memorize them. It is interesting to note that putting these two characters together form the word 明(ming) meaning “brightness”. One can well imagine the brightness under the sun and moon.

    Character Combinations

    The Chinese Language

    Many new words are formed when you combine basic characters with 日 (sun). For example,

                 ri()

    + guang (light-光) =sunshine

    + ji (record-记) =diary

    + yong (use-用) =daily use

    So as you can see it's not as difficult as it first looks. The Chinese language is very interesting and it's worth knowing and learning.;

    Pinyin

    The Chinese Language

    We assure you that learning the Chinese language is not as difficult as people think. Nowadays, with the help of the pinyin system, it has become much easier.

    Why?

    Because the pinyin system uses English letters along with their combinations to pronounce Chinese characters. You are in a good position to learn Chinese if you know the 26 letters of the English language. Please try the free sample lessons to see for yourself!
