RIT offers several courses in Chinese Language and Culture.
In China, 80% of people use the traditional Chinese Language, while others use a variety of dialects. These difference in dialects make it hard for the people of China to communicate at times. Fortunately, there is a unified system of writing to make communication easier.
Despite these efforts to make communication simpler, there were still problems. So in 1958, the Chinese government standardized Chinese by creating a common spoken language, known as Mandarin Chinese. It is based on the dialect of Beijing and it's adjacent areas. It is the official language used in public settings.
