Hello, everyone recently, I took a text,the Chinese Mandarin Grade Text, well, this was the secondtime I took it,as the first time I couldn't pass it, I got 85 points, but in my school, they required us that we should at least getting 87points. Oh, I have serious dialect, it's imposible for me to pass it,are we necessary to pass the text? Or must we speak a good Mandarin, we can comunicate,that's Ok, isn't it?

Of course Mandarin is the most important language and it's also the official language in China. Although I speak in Cantonese in usual, but I think it's still a dialect only. Perhaps only Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau people speak it. However, if you know Mandarin, you can go all over China. I love China
