Yeah, I learnt and know French, but seriously it's a weird sounding one.for some reason I can't stand the sound of French, despite so many people consider it "the most pleasing language to the ears".
Spanish is much better as a Romance language, at least they don't have two pronounciation for the letter "e".
Guangdong is the biggest though, and tbh, only the Cantonese manage to have sizable dialect community going on, most other communities have switched to Mandarin.Yes, assimilation and melting pot should be the norm. China should remove all benefits specifically directed at ethnic minorities and re-designate every autonomous regions into provinces.
No, Cantonese is mostly limited to Guangdong only. The south is a lot bigger than just Guangdong
Anything ending with a "nan" literally means south.
Don't get me wrong, Mandarin is OK, but Cantonese is closer to old Chinese, if it's lost, it would be a big loss to China.
