Chinese is one of the world’s most ancient surviving languages, and it is today the most spoken language in the world. Far more people speak Mandarin Chinese than English. The Chinese language is quite unique, and not as hard to learn as you think. Chinese is a tonal language, meaning that you must learn to hear the different tones or pitches used to express the meaning of a word. But because of the added tonal indicator, Chinese words are both short and phonetically simple. Chinese grammar is also easier than many other languages, with very little verb conjugation and no articles or gender.
