About 1.3 billion people (one-fifth of the world) speak some form of Chinese 中文, making it the language with the most native speakers and has influenced even more languages within the East Asian subcontinent. It is also one of the oldest languages in the world and can trace its origins all the way back to the development of the Zhou Dynasty in the 11th century B.C.E.. The Chinese 中文 writing system is notoriously difficult for English speakers to master, as it does not contain a segmental alphabet. Instead, it consists of thousands of standalone characters. Fun fact: Chinese is a tonal language meaning the way something is said can drastically affect its meaning.
