History of the Chinese Language

Chinese scholars and linguists alike classify all variations and styles of spoken Chinese as part of the Sino-Tibetan family. Despite the lack of supporting evidence and documentation available, it is believed that its origins date back to an original language called Proto-Sino-Tibetan over 7000 years ago. Due to its immense geographic size, China has always been a land of many languages and dialects. During the latter part of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Mandarin emerged as the language of the ruling class. The later part of the Ming Dynasty saw the capital of China move from Nanjing to Beijing and remained as such through the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). Since Mandarin is based on the Beijing dialect, it naturally became the official language of the country.

Modern Day Chinese

About 1.3 billion people (one-fifth of the world) speak some form of Chinese, making it the language with the most native speakers. The Chinese language, spoken in the form of Standard Mandarin, is the official language in the largest part of mainland China and Taiwan. In the form of Standard Cantonese, there are 66 million speakers and is mainly spoken in the Guangdong province, is one of the two official languages of Hong Kong together with English, and in Macau together with Portuguese. Today, the Mandarin Chinese language is becoming a much more common language to study from primary school up to university.
