I’m non-Chinese. I am able to speak Cantonese fairly. Now, i am planning to look for a new job in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, i see MANDARIN as the requirement in almost every job search. Looking at this situation, i guess i must start to learn MANDARIN soon. But the problem is …….. if i learn MANDARIN, i need to find someone in Hong Kong with whom i can have MANDARIN practical conversation. Well, i guess it’s a very hard and difficult idea for me to find MANDARIN SPEAKER in Hong Kong since i know no Chinese people in Hong Kong … !!! The only i can expect is through … by my question viewers like YOU and INTERNET SURFING.
I'm in dilemma …. shall i learn MANDARIN or CANTONESE ?!?!?
