Chinese (CHI)

The Chinese language is spoken by almost 1.2 billion native speakers, roughly a billion of that speak the Mandarin dialect — it is the most spoken language in the world. The Chinese language began to evolve about 3,000 years ago, producing many works of literature and philosophy. Mandarin language instruction has become increasingly popular in U. S. schools. With China being the world’s 2nd largest economy, careers that can make use of the Chinese language include government, military, business, translating, and research.
