There isn't a single Chinese language, the most widely spoken is Mandarin. Written Mandarin doesn't use an alphabet, it uses a system of symbols - over 40,000 symbols are used.

This is a trick question. There is no such thing as a Chinese alphabet. Chinese uses a pictographic system. In China they don't have letters, they just have words, so there is a different symbol for each word....this is why it is extremely difficult to learn Chinese because you have to memorize so many symbols.

How do you write the alphabet in chines?
There is no alphabet per se, in Chinese. Chinese characters each represent an entire syllable. In mainland China, there is some use of the Western Alphabet for phonetic spelling, while in Taiwan, there is a syllabary for phonetic "spelling". Often referred to as "bo-po-mo-fo" the way we call our alphabet the ABCs, this syllabary has symbols to represent the beginnings of syllables and symbols to represent the ends of syllables. Still not an alphabet, though: in the above examble,"bo" is one symbol, "mo" is another, etc. These are "initials", symbols representing the beginnings of syllables. "Finals", symbols for the ends of syllables, represent sounds such as "an" and "ung", etc. Clear as mud? :D
