What Is The Chinese Language
The Chinese language known as Mandarin is the most common language in the world. But there are many other languages spoken in China, including Wu, Hunanese, Jiangxinese, Hakka, Yue (including Cantonese-Taishanese), Ping, Shaojiang, and Min.
These Chinese languages are often classified as dialects, but are mutually unintelligible, so on that basis could be designated as languages. On the other hand, the fact that they share a common writing system (Chinese characters), and have a common cultural background, supports the argument that they are dialects of the official Chinese language – Mandarin.
