1     China is a country in eastern Asia. It is the world's most populous country. The territory of China is slightly larger than the territory of the United States, and more than 1.2 billion people live there. The population of China is about 22% of total world's population, and it means that approximately every fifth person in the world is Chinese!
2     The Chinese government has developed a special program of family planning to control the growth of the population. Only one child is allowed in a family, and exceptions are very rare.
3     The climate in China is different in different areas of the country. Southern provinces are very hot and humid throughout the year, but winters in northern China are very dry and cold, and summers are hot, and have plenty of rain.
4     China has many natural water basins. There are many lakes, thousands of rivers, and several seas. In fact, the South China Sea is the largest sea in the world.
5     The largest river in China is the Yangtze river, and it is the third largest river in the world, next only to the Nile in Africa and Amazon in South America. The Yangtze is known as the "golden waterway," because it links western and eastern areas of the country.
