  • Chinese writing is very different from our writing. We think Chinese writing is strange and Chinese people think our writing is strange.

Mandarin and Cantonese languages are very different. They are written differently and they are pronounced very different. You will learn about Mandarin and Cantonese language.

Concluding paragraph
  • It may be hard and different, but it also can be fun to learn and useful if you’re moving to China. But there’s over 50,000 characters, that’s a lot of characters, I do say so myself. So, if want to learn Chinese writing, start learning! Chinese writing can be so amazing if you give it a chance. Kids learn Chinese language at grades two to twelve, because there are five billion characters and sounds to learn. I think that it is too much characters and sounds to learn.
