    Yet another question here. While Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese are different dialects, are they different enough that speakers of one dialect can't understand speakers of the other? How different are they exactly? Is it a matter of grammar? Pronunciation?

    Good question. In fact, each of the dialects can be interpreted as a complete different language. In the case of Cantonese, despite the spoken language that is different, it has its own rules as well. So both pronunciation and wording are different. In the case of grammar, I am not sure about it as I donīt speak it .
