About the language
Part of the Sino-Tibetan language family, Han, the largest ethnic group in the world, represents 92% of the entire Chinese population. Due to lack of written documentation and evidence to support the linguistic development of the spoken language, the actual ancestry of spoken Chinese is still relatively unknown. Chinese is thought to be oldest written language in the world, with character inscriptions dating back 3,000 years. Chinese encompasses 7 main dialects; Mandarin, Cantonese, Hakka, Wu, Min, Xiang and Gan with the Beijing dialect of Mandarin being the standardised version of Chinese. Because of the sheer number of unintelligible dialects, the written form is the most common way to communicate, with the majority of people having the ability to understand.
