Characteristics of the Chinese Language

One of the most distinct features of Chinese is its writing system, which uses characters instead of letters, those are pictographs that represent words or ideas, and there are thousands of them in the Chinese language. Learning to read and write Chinese can be challenging, but it can also be incredibly rewarding.

Chinese also has a unique tonal system. This means that the meaning of a word can change depending on the tone in which it is pronounced. Mandarin Chinese has four main tones, as well as a neutral tone, which can make it challenging for non-native speakers to master.
