Post Adding 'Cantonese' to Native Language

Could administrator please include Cantonese as one of the selectable native language in profile editing section?

Cantonese is a widely spoken dialect which is phonetically different from Chinese or Mandarin Chinese.

I would much appreciate it if the forum administration will take this language, Cantonese, into the category of Native Language.

Millions of thanks in advance.

One of the admins will see your request shortly and, if the change can be made, I'm sure it will. In the meantime, please note my corrections above. Also, until Cantonese is added, perhaps you could choose something closer to your native language. At the moment, it says English. Other learners would see that and expect your posts to be error-free.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

Re: Adding 'Cantonese' to Native Language

Thanks for the suggestion! I have added "Cantonese" as an option now.

Unfortunately due to the way the software works, I've had to add it at the end of the list.
I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
