Korean is the official language of both North Korea and South Korea, and one of the two official languages in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in China. Worldwide, there are an estimated 78 million Korean speakers. The genealogical classification of the Korean language is disputed, and due to the lack of a single widely accepted theory, a cautious classification will describe it as an isolated language. Though not related to Chinese, Korean has borrowed heavily from it to include thousands of Chinese words. Korean has several dialects, which are similar and mutually intelligible, with the exception of the dialect of Jeju Island. The standard language of South Korea is based on the dialect of the area around Seoul, and the standard for North Korea is based on the dialect spoken around P’yongyang. The Korean language used in North Korea and South Korea differ in pronunciation, spelling, grammar and vocabulary. Korean was formerly written using Hanja, borrowed Chinese characters pronounced in the Korean way. It was replaced in the 15th century by a national writing system, called Hangul, that was developed by Sejong the Great, though Hanja may be mixed in to write Sino-Korean words. South Korea still teaches 1,800 Hanja characters in its schools, while the use of Hanja was abolished in North Korea decades ago.
