    Course Programs in Languages Chinese

    What is a language course in Chinese?

    The Chinese language is known to be one of the more difficult languages to learn due to its many dialects and regional grammatical differences. Mandarin, or standard Chinese is the official language of Taiwan and the People's Republic of China. Singapore also considers Mandarin Chinese as one of its four official languages. Although phonology of Mandarin Chinese is supported mainly by the Beijing dialect, the vocabulary emerges from a diverse and very large selection of standard Chinese dialects spoken in all parts of China except the western area. A tonal language, Mandarin Chinese differs from southern Mandarin because of its use of fewer vowels but more initial consonants and compound words.

    Written Chinese characters are either traditional or simplified in form and meaning. Beginning in 3rd grade, Taiwan and Chinese students are taught standard Chinese with the exception of local language students who are taught in their own dialect but given a few hours of instruction in Mandarin each week.
