About

Over one billion people speak some form of Chinese. Modern Standard Chinese, the official language of China, is the most widely spoken language in the world. Chinese characters, invented circa 1,200 B.C. and still in use today, have been central to the development of writing in other Asian countries such as Japan, Korea and Vietnam. University of Washington offers the Chinese programme.

Overview

Key facts

Chinese boasts the longest unbroken literary tradition of any modern civilization, with the oldest texts dating to more than three thousand years ago. Chinese literature, that can be learned at  University of Washington, includes some of the great treasures of world heritage: the treatises of Confucius and Mencius; the works of Tang dynasty poets such as Li Bo, Du Fu and Wang Wei; and early modern vernacular novels such as the Romance of the Three Kingdoms and the Dream of the Red Chamber.

Today China continues to produce exciting works as the country’s economic and cultural importance continues to grow. Chinese immigrants and their descendants form vibrant communities in the United States (such as in Seattle), Canada and in many other countries around the world.
