Mandarin Chinese—What Mandarin Chinese Is And Why You DON'T NEED To Learn All Characters (And Not Even A Lot Of Them!)
What is Mandarin Chinese?
Mandarin Chinese is the main dialect spoken in China, originally spoken in the area around Beijing but since 1955 adopted as official language of the People's Republic of China.
In China are spoken a lot of different dialects. Among them there are Cantonese (spoken for example in Hong Kong) and Taiwanese.
Here at WearYourChineseName™ we strictly adhere to the official, standard Beijing pronunciation.
Interestingly, the writing system (Chinese characters) is the same for all China, no matter which dialect is spoken; so the term Mandarin (and Cantonese, Taiwanese, etc.) refers only to the spoken language.
