How many languages there are in China: the difference between Mandarin and Cantonese.

Do you know how many people speak Chinese?

About 1.3  billion! That’s nearly 1/5 (19%) of the Earth’s population! But this is not the only “surprising” thing about this language. Chinese is also one of the oldest languages in the world. Chinese scientists have found written sources from a period of over 3500 years. But despite its “old age”, Chinese is the only culture that has maintained the same writing system, even today. English to Cantonese translation is gaining more prominence, because more companies are developing relations with the East, primarily China.

In the majority of cases children are treated with candy, but for anyone too scared to answer the door, a special kind of "justice" awaits.
