The Chinese use pictographs which are symbols that represent or mean a word or phrase. The main rules for Chinese characters have been unchanged for thousand of years. The first characters were pictographs having to do with the human body or nature. The earliest Chinese writing was found on oracle bones, this method was used to keep important historical documents. The way of writing these symbols has changed over time so that it may be easier to write in Chinese. This language has inspired other written languages in all of Asia.
