Can someone (914) please clarify this?
“The Hokkien (dialect): a Chinese dialect, often called Minnan or Minnanhua (Southern Min), a member of the Min dialect branch, similar to Taiwanese.”
So, people in Taiwan speak Fukinese and Hokkien? Or are they pretty much the same thing?
And what about Hakka? I though Hakka was the third most popular dialect in Taiwan?
Right, but doesn’t this stymie communication. Will these people speak in English to others? Will they use any other language, but Mandarin, to communicate? Or do they speak only Taiwanese in every situation?
Agreed. If speaking Taiwanese is more important making money to this person, then I would be more than happy to respect his wishes and take my business elsewhere.
