    Isn't Zhang Jie Wen a Cantonese? I thougtht she comes from Guandong province. If so, she can probably speak better Cantonese plus Mandarin than most Malaysian Chinese.

    If, if, the couple decide to reside in Msia & Zhang choose to be a coach, the non Chinese players or Baba Nyonya descent would have problem understanding her, that was why Li Mao didnt coach non Chinese speaking players. But if PJB can coach Japan without being able to speak Japanese & Li Mao can coach Korea MS without speaking Korean.... Zhang should have no problem, the Msian camp would very joyfully welcome her, esp WD.

    Like Dreamz said, Cantonese is mostly in central - Selangor, Perak, Wilayah.
    I dont speak Cantonese, Southern states use Mandarin, Zhang should have no problem with Mandarin.
    PJB definitely can speak Japanese. He was giving tips in Japanese to the JPN MDs during breaks.

    Her Cantonese is better than me... yes, i would agree with you that she speaks better canton than malaysian or even hongkies. But i think she is used to Mandarin.. sometimes i speak to her in Canto.. she reply in Mandarin.. so weird.

    Yang Wei speaks good cantonese as well.

    Hahaha...... Jiewen will fit in well in Malaysia.

    In Malaysia, it is not unusual to understand and to speak different languages. Therefore, what/how we listen and what/how we speak, it is how we prefer.

    I asked my Japanese friend what PJB was saying during breaks but she found it difficult to understand.

    I've heard JiaWen and Yang Wei converse in Cantonese on court during their match.

    Again, it is because fhf is from Guangdong province in China. However, fhf is a Cantonese Hakka, from a city called Wei Zhou, which is in the heartland of the Hakkas.
    Similarly, Lin Dan and Chen Hong are Fukienese, but both are Fukienese Hakkas.

    U meant Meizhou, heartland of the Hakkas?

    Really, I dun know Fu Haifeng is Hakka . Lin Dan is confirmed a Hakka from Shanghang, Fujian, where Hakka is the majority. But I dun think Chen Hong is also Hakka, I think he is Hokkien.

    Yang Wei can speak Cantonese? I thought she moved from Hubei (same province as Gao Ling) to Guangdong?

    Chen Hong came from the same place as Lin Dan and both are Hakka Fujianese (Hokkien). One of my friends who married a Hong Kong woman is a team mate of Chen Hong when they were in Foo Zhou, the capital of Fujian.
    That is why Fujian (Hokkien) has for many years been China's men's provincial champions, and Guangzhou the women's.
