★How many people speak Mandarin Chinese as their first language? Where is Mandarin Chinese spoken?
Unfortunately, it’s hard to tell you an exact figure. According to some estimates, about 70% of all Chinese speak Mandarin, the official standard language. With a population of 1.3 billion people, this would mean about 900 million people, spread all over the country . The official standard language ‘Putonghua’ is being promoted by the government.Most Chinese speak their own dialect but they can understand Mandarin and when they leave their hometown, they have to communicate with other Chinese using mandarin.
Outside China, there are many countries with considerable Chinese minorities who speak Mandarin Chinese or other Chinese regionalects. Not only are there many Chinese minorities in Canada,South-East Asian countries like Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, etc.,
★Do I have to learn how many Chinese character?
In total, throughout Chinese history, more than 80,000 characters have been identified, of which about 11,000 are still used in Modern Chinese. However, only about 3,500 are commonly used. In fact, with only 1,500 characters, you could read 94.6% of written material. Knowing 3,000 characters allows you to read no less than 99.5% of all texts and is thus definitely enough to read.So don’t be afraid of learning characters,just think it as a picture or drawing.
★What is the difference between simplified character & traditional Chinese?
The first series of simplified characters (jiantizi) was introduced in 1956 by the government of the People’s Republic of China in an effort to promote literacy. This was followed by a second series of simplified characters in 1964. In total, 2235 characters were simplified.
The simplified characters are officially used in the People’s Republic of China, except for Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, where the ‘traditional’ characters (fantizi) are still used.
