Can anybody explain the relationship between these and which one is the 'official' language in China or is China bilingual. Do some cantonese speakers understand mandarin and vice versa (I was led to believe they don't understand each other)

Hi Alex,

Mandarin is the official language in China and is the most common. Cantonese is more used in the south of China and is dominant in Hong Kong.

Some speakers know both languages but primarily if they travel often in both places or grew up learning one or both or use them for business.
