Chinese or the Chinese languages comprise a group of related, yet in many cases mutually incomprehensible languages that belong to the Sino-Tibetan family of languages.
The standardised and written form of Chinese is standard Chinese, which is based on the Beijing dialect, which is part of the wider group of Northern Chinese dialects. It is written using Chinese characters, or logograms, so even speakers of different Chinese languages who cannot understand one another have no difficulty understanding the written form. Standard Chinese is the official language in the People’s Republic of China and in Taiwan, and is one of the four official languages of Singapore. It is also one of the six negotiating languages of the United Nations.
