Before setting foot on this enchanting land, you are suggested knowing some facts about China including its people, language, Chinese names, etiquette and holidays.  Country Description China is one of the earliest places where mankind originated. Chinese civilization is the longest of the four ancient civilizations (the other three being the civilizations of the ancient Egypt, the Babylon and the ancient India). Early in the 21st Century BC, China entered the heritable imperial stage. Having experienced Xia, Shang, Zhou, Qin, Han, Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties and many other turbulent times, the country finally ended the feudal society and the People's Republic of China was set up in 1949. Now with the correct policies issued by the Central Government, it is developing vigorously, becoming a main economic force in the world.

 Chinese Language Chinese people speak mandarin (Putong Hua, Hanyu, Huayu, Guoyu, standard Chinese) which is based on Beijing Dialect. From the inscriptions on oracle bones in the Shang Dynasty, it is concluded that the formation of Chinese characters has a history of more than 3,000 years. Its development can be divided into two major periods: from inscriptions on oracle bones to mini-seal script, and from Li calligraphy to modern character.  Chinese Names Chinese names are composed of the surnames and the given names. The main sources of surnames come from the following cases: first, in matriarchal clan society, people took their mothers' given name as the family name, such as 姬 (Ji), 姚 (Yao) and 姜 (Jiang); second, in the distant past, the worshipped living creatures were taken as the family names, like 牛 (Niu), 马 (Ma) and 羊 (Yang); third, the ancestors' country names were taken as the family names, such as 宋 (Song), 秦 (Qin), 赵 (Zhao) and 吴 (Wu). The given names often connect with good wills, and men's given names are generally different from women's.  Chinese People

When people say to me "There's nothing to do on Catalina. Let them tell you some of their history as you go along. 2) "Bagged Me a
Homer" My choice for the second greatest musical number in Simpsons history so far may surprise many hardcore fans. New sites are using similar deal offers and business models, creating competition for Groupon. On Wednesday's episode Vegas week ended and the judges went to the contestants houses to tell them if they'd made it or not.
