Did you know?

Just because a person can speak a language does not mean that he or she is an effective trainer. Being a good trainer involves knowledge of the language, experience employing training methodologies, and the ability to personalize the training and motivate students. The effective trainer has genuine concern for the student’s progress.

 

Whether you need foreign language training for a few individuals or an entire workforce, we can help. We provide one-to-one, group lessons, on-line training & corporate and campus trainings as well.

 

When the Chinese people talk about the "Chinese language", they might use any one of these five terms:

 

• zhōng wén (中文)

• hàn yǔ (汉语/漢語)

• pǔ tōng huà (普通话/普通話)

• guó yǔ (国语/國語)

• huá yǔ (华语/華語)

 

zhōng wén (中文) – Chinese language. It can cover both the spoken language as well as the written form. Also, all the different Chinese dialects are considered to be "zhōng wén", though with the increasing popularity of Mandarin worldwide, "zhōng wén" tends to refer mainly to Mandarin Chinese.

 

hàn yǔ (汉语/漢語) – Mandarin. "hàn" refers to "hànzú (汉族/漢族)", or the Han ethnic group. Of the 56 ethnic groups in China, the Han people account for over 90% of the population. "hàn yǔ (汉语/漢語)", as the name suggests, refers to the language of the Han ethnic group, or Mandarin. Mandarin Chinese is considered “standard” Chinese as opposed to other Chinese dialects.

 

pǔ tōng huà (普通话/普通話) – The literal meaning of "pǔ tōng huà (普通话/普通話)" is “common language”. "pǔ tōng huà (普通话/普通話)" is the official language of Mainland China.

 

guó yǔ (国语/國語) – "guó yǔ (国语/國語)" literally means “national language”. "Guó yǔ" and "pǔ tōng huà" are also essentially the same. "guó yǔ (国语/國語)" is used by Taiwan and sometimes Hong Kong to refer to Mandarin, while "pǔ tōng huà" is used by Mainland China to refer to Mandarin.

 

huá yǔ (华语/華語) / huá wén (华文/華文) – These two terms also refer to standard Mandarin but are used in Southeast Asia, particularly in Singapore and Malaysia. Both countries have adopted Mainland China’s "pǔ tōng huà (普通话/普通話)" along with simplified characters rather than traditional. "huá yǔ (华语/華語)" / "huá wén (华文/華文)" refer exclusively to spoken and written language.

 

 

SUMMARY

The differences between "zhōng wén (中文)", "hàn yǔ (汉语/漢語)", "pǔ tōng huà (普通话/普通話)", "guó yǔ (国语/國語)", "huá yǔ (华语/華語)" and "huá wén (华文/華文)" are pretty subtle and the nuances are commonly overlooked by foreign Chinese speakers.
