It is often said that Chinese is one of the most ancient languages ever to have been written down, with some historians dating it to as far back as 6000 years ago. Chinese is divided into countless dialects, the majority of which can be categorised within one of seven distinct groups: Mandarin, Cantonese, Hakka, Wu, Min and Xiang.
Within these seven groups exist dozens of sub-languages – dialects, which the majority (over 90%) of Chinese people speak. The remaining 8% or so speak languages other than Chinese, like Tibetan, Miao and Mongolian. There are enormous differences between the many Chinese dialects, but all are united under one common rule: they can both be written down using Simplified Chinese or Traditional Chinese; the former of which is primarily in use in the PRC (People’s Republic of China), Malaysia and Singapore.
