  1. Chinese for Beginners (A1/HSK1)初级汉语 Lecture 1 第一堂 Instructor: Ya Ping Hsiao 萧雅萍老师

  2. Mandarin Chinese • What does Mandarin mean? In the Chinese Empire, mandarin refers to a member of any of the nine ranks of public officials. • Most Chinese speak Mandarin. • 875 million people in China and 6.8 million outside China speak Mandarin as their first language.

  3. Brief History • In 1932, the Chinese Republic made Mandarin the national language and named it Guóyǔ. Mandarin, the dialect of Peking, became the official form of pronunciation. • In 1949, the People’s Republic changed the name of Guóyǔ to Pǔtōnghuà, which means “the common language.”

  4. A Chinese syllable • Generally speaking, the pronunciation of one Chinese character is one syllable. One Chinese syllable is composed of one consonant, one vowel and one tone (except that several syllables without consonants).
