A short history of the Taiwanese language
Taiwanese is spoken on the island of Taiwan, which is to the north east of China. Taiwanse is more commonly known as Taiwanese Hokkien and it is spoken by the majority of the population and is thought to be around 15 million people.
Taiwanese people originated from the southern part of the Fujian province. The language is very similar to the language spoken by the people living in the south eastern coast of Xiamen, which is close to Taiwan.
Traditional Chinese characters are used for writing, although there are some literary works based on the grammar and vocabulary of Taiwanese Hokkien.
Before 1945 the official language of Taiwan was Japanese and it was taught in schools across the country. However, after the second world war in 1945, Taiwan came under the control of the Chinese and they banned the use of Taiwanese and made the official language Mandarin Chinese.
During the 1980s the use of Taiwanese was allowed and now TV and radio stations have their own Taiwanese speaking programmes. In some schools it is now taught as a separate subject, but Mandarin Chinese still dominates the island and, many of today’s youth speak Mandarin Chinese.
