Chinese Studies

Chinese Studies

Chinese is a group of similar but often mutually exclusive languages spoken primarily in the Oriental nations of South and East Asia. Between 15–20% of the world's population speak Chinese as their first language.

The most common form, Standard Chinese, is the Beijing dialect of the Mandarin language. It is the official language of China, Taiwan and Singapore, and is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.
Courses often offer a great insight into the Chinese nation, including business, economy, geography, history, language, law, politics, religion, media and culture.
