    Since 2011, International Chinese Language Day has been annually celebrated on April 20. Considering its rich history and deep roots, Chinese language is one of the most fascinating languages to learn, which is why the Workogram team has prepared a small collection of unique facts.
    [​IMG] The history of Chinese language counts over 5000 years. It is one of the oldest languages in the world.
    [​IMG] Chinese language does not have an alphabet, instead, it uses a system of characters called "hanzi," which reflect different sounds and meanings.
    [​IMG] There are over 50,000 hanzi characters in the Chinese language, but only about 3000-4000 are used in everyday life.
    [​IMG] The most widely spoken dialect is Mandarin, which is spoken by over 70% of the population in China.
    [​IMG] The importance of pronunciation in Chinese language is unique. Attention is paid even to minor details, reflecting a cultural approach to communication and speech etiquette. For example, the word "ma" can mean "mother" or "hemp" depending on the tone.

    International Chinese Language Day on April 20 celebrates the rich history and unique features of the Chinese language. With over 5000 years of history, it's one of the world's oldest languages. Instead of an alphabet, it uses "hanzi" characters, with over 50,000 in total, but only 3000-4000 in daily use. Mandarin is the most spoken dialect, and pronunciation nuances are crucial, where tone changes can alter word meanings. Happy Chinese Language Day! #ChineseLanguageDay
