i learned mandarin in school but it feels so much more formal because of the tones and such

i dnt think coz it's hard, it's coz Mandarin is more important since it's China's official language.

Yeah that too, but people say that Cantonese is harder to pronunciate or something.
I think its easy cuz I grew up with it so i wouldnt exactly know.

I speak Cantonese :D
Woo-hoo.

It has more of a flatter tone, than other languages (such as Mandarin, or Korean).

It sounds kind of choppy IMO. I speak it--actually I bs it. I'm one of those sad Asians who aren't super fluent in their languages.

I actually think that Mando is really hard to learn for me, though i'm not learning it now. My mom taught me a phrase in Mando and it was so hard to say and everything. I've only watched one HK drama, mostly cuz i can't find many good ones.
