A foreign language is a language indigenous to another country.

Introduction about the language

Spanish is one of the most-used languages in the world, and it's one that is relatively easy for English speakers to master. Whether you are studying Spanish at school, learning the language on your own or just wanting to pick up enough Spanish to make your travels more enjoyable, this collection of lessons and articles is designed to help you gain a fuller understanding of the language.

Facts about the language

With 329 million native speakers, Spanish ranks as the world's No. 2 language in terms of how many people speak it as their first language. It is slightly ahead of English (328 million), but far behind Mandarin Chinese (1.2 billion).
Spanish has at least 3 million native speakers each in 44 countries, making it the fourth mostly geographically widely spoken language behind English (112 countries), French (60) and Arabic (57).
Spanish is one of the world's most phonetic languages. If you know how a word is spelled, you can almost always know how it is pronounced (although the reverse isn't true).
After Latin, the language that has had the biggest influence on Spanish is Arabic. Today, the foreign language exerting the most influence is English, and Spanish has adopted hundreds of English words related to technology and culture.
Spanish and English share much of their vocabulary through cognates, as both languages derive many of their words from Latin and Arabic.
Today Spanish is an official language of the UN and its institutions, the European Union and other international organizations.
The demand for Spanish courses has doubled worldwide in ten years.
Approximately 100 million people speak Spanish as a second language.
Spanish is expected to be the first language of 50% of the population of the United States within 50 years.
Spanish is the most popular foreign language to learn in America and Europe.

Chinese

Introduction about the Language

Chinese is spoken in china,Hongkong, macau,Taiwan,Malaysia,Singpore and other regions with Chinese communities. Standard Mandarin is the official Language of the people of Republic of china and the Republic of china (Taiwan) .About one-fifth of the world’s population or over 1 Billion people speak some form of Chinese as their native language

Chinese Language facts

About one-fifth of the world speaks some form of Chinese as its native language, making it the language with the most native speakers. The Chinese language (spoken in its standard Mandarin form) is the official language of the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China, one of four official languages of Singapore, and one of six official languages of the United Nations.

The terms and concepts used by Chinese to think about language are different from those used in the West, partly because of the unifying effects of the Chinese characters used in writing, and partly because of differences in the political and social development of China in comparison with Europe. Whereas after the fall of the Roman Empire, Europe fragmented into small nation-states, the identities of which were often defined by language, China was able to preserve cultural and political unity through the same period.

One major difference between Chinese concepts of language and Western concepts is that Chinese makes a sharp distinction between written language (wen) and spoken language (yu). This distinction extends to the distinction between written word (zi) and spoken word (hua). The concept of a distinct and unified combination of both written and spoken forms of language is much less strong in Chinese than in the West. There are a variety of spoken Chinese, the most prominent of which is Mandarin.

Spoken Chinese is a tonal language related to Tibetan and Burmese, but genetically unrelated to other neighbouring languages, such as Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, and Japanese. However, these languages were strongly influenced by Chinese in the course of history, linguistically and also extralinguistically. Korean and Japanese both have writing systems employing Chinese characters, which are called Hanja and Kanji, respectively. In North Korea, Hanja has been completely discontinued and Hangul is the sole way to express their language, while in South Korea, Hanja is used as a form of bold face. Along with those two languages, Vietnamese also contains many Chinese loanwords and formerly used Chinese characters.

Japanese

Introduction about the Language

The Japanese language will seem very different at first from your native language, but it is not as hard to learn as many people think. It is quite a logically laid out language and once you learn basic reading skills it will be easy to pronounce any word you can read. Unlike English, for example, how a word is written in Japanese is how it is pronounced. For example, there are no 'spelling bees' in Japan because there is confusion in what characters to use to spell a word. How it sounds is how it is spelled. This may sound confusing, but if you learn hiragana it will very quickly make sense.
