Traditional Chinese is used in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau

Simplified Chinese is used in mainland China, introduced in 1954 by the Government to simplify Traditional Chinese in order to improve literacy.

Chinese has influenced many regional languages like: Korean, Vietnamese, and Japanese. Korean and Japanese have a writting system based on some Chinese characters. Vietnamese is written using the latin alphabet.

Chinese characters

Each character represents a word, although as it is an ancient language (eg:telephone in Chinese 电话 is 'Electric Speech', so two characters needed), modern words need two to three characters to explain one word. This is mostly nouns, as verbs and adjectives only consist of one character.

Countries where Chinese is the official or co-official language:

People's Republic of China (Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan), Singapore.
