About

The Languages of China are the languages that are spoken by China’s 56 recognized ethnic groups. The predominant language in China, which is divided into dialects, is known as Hanyu (simplified Chinese: 汉语; traditional Chinese: 漢語; pinyin: Hànyǔ).
Chinese is spoken by about 1.3 billion people mainly in the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of China (Taiwan), Singapore and other parts of Southeast Asia. There are also communities of Chinese speakers in many other parts of the world.
Mandarin Chinese ranks number one among the spoken languages in the world. Nearly a billion of the world population speaks Chinese. This includes both native and non-native speakers as well. With 847 million native speakers, Mandarin Chinese becomes the most widely spoken first language.

Qualification (Why this course?)

Speaking Chinese opens up opportunities for higher education at some of China’s best-known universities (mostly Medicine) often on very favourable financial terms. Students with a good level of knowledge in Chinese (Mandarin) may be eligible to enrol on a postgraduate course of their choice in China, leading to an internationally recognised postgraduate degree.
For professionals, the knowledge of Chinese language gives them the opportunity of interacting with Chinese business people and corporate officials. Interacting in Chinese could be the deal breaker for major deals or allow access to trading with important sectors of their economy. The importance of Mandarin Chinese for industries and businesses of tomorrow is undisputable.
