Chinese language resources

The Chinese language has a reputation for being one of the most difficult languages in the world to master. If you have learned Chinese, you can talk with nearly 1.2 billion people, which is around 16% of the world’s population. There are a number of dialects of Chinese spoken such as Cantonese, with Mandarin being the "standard" dialect.
