People are saying that china is booming at the moment and my dad says that in future it will be so big that people will move over there to get decent jobs. Does anyone ever worry about having to learn mandarin cause i know most chinese people speak cantonese (apart from if you're in H.K, where most learn or pick up mandarin). Even though some of us speak cantonese and should be able to pick it up, what about those who are raised to speak in english only? Even if we do speak chinese at home, the rest of the time when we're out we communicate in english, so does anyone fear about having to learn a whole new dialect all together?
