1/5 of the world speaks Chinese

Chinese is a group of related language varieties. About one-fifth of the world’s population, or an over one billion person, speaks some form of Chinese as their native language.

Most of these groups are mutually unintelligible

Varieties of Chinese are usually perceived by native speakers as dialects of a single Chinese language. However, localization proves otherwise; there are between 7 and 13 main regional groups of Chinese, depending on classification scheme, of which the most spoken, by far, is Mandarin about 850 million, followed by Wu – 90 million, Yue – 70 million and Min - 50 million. Most of these groups are mutually unintelligible, although some, like Xiang and the Southwest Mandarin dialects, may share common terms and some degree of intelligibility.

Mandarin, Cantonese, and Taiwanese

“Mainland Chinese” is a standardized form of spoken Chinese based on the Beijing dialect of Mandarin. Of the other varieties of Chinese, Cantonese, the variety of Yue, is spoken in the Guangdong Province and Cantonese-speaking overseas communities, and remains one of the official languages of Hong Kong together with English and of Macau together with Portuguese. Min Nan, part of the Min group, is widely spoken in southern Fujian, in neighboring Taiwan, where it is known as Taiwanese or Hoklo and in Southeast Asia, also known as Hokkien in the Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia.
