Mandarin Chinese is spoken by more than 1 billion people, making it the most widely spoken language in the world. It is the official language of Mainland China and Taiwan, and one of the official languages of Singapore and the United Nations. Mandarin is also spoken in many of the Overseas Chinese communities throughout the world. There are an estimated 40 million Overseas Chinese, mostly in Asian countries (about 30 million), but also in the Americas (6 million), Europe (2 million), Oceania (1 million) and Africa (100,000).
