Abstract:

Mandarin Since 1950 the official language of China has been Mandarin, called putonghua or "common speech." All schools in China teach Mandarin, and it's used on television, radio, and in most day-to-day business. That said, it's unlikely to be the only language you'll hear on the street. In fact, Mandarin is just one of eight different dialect groups that are spoken in China. Written Chinese Interestingly, all the Chinese dialect groups use the same written system. They just sound different. So someone who speaks only Cantonese will be able to read the same newspaper as someone who speaks only Mandarin.
