China, like any Eastern country, is different from the rest of the world. The Chinese language is also very different:
Chinese has no alphabet.
More than 50 nations inhabiting China speak more than 200 languages. Chinese people from different provinces may not understand each other.
The Chinese language has more than 100000 hieroglyphs. This number of signs is almost impossible to digest. For that reason an educated Chinese person is obliged to know 5000 hieroglyphs.
Mandarin is regarded as the official Chinese language.
Despite the difficulties of the Celestial language, Chinese language schools are opened every year in Europe and the CIS countries. The language is studied not only in specialised centres, universities, but also in elementary and high schools from the first or fifth form, depending on the programme.
