Mandarin or Cantonese?

In order to communicate with the locals, we should use mandarin. Therefore, the biggest transformation of myself in this trip would be using Mandarin to conduct a workshop for the Tibet’s secondary students as well as a TED talk presentation with the Tibet university students.

At first, I am not afraid to speak in Mandarin because I think my Mandarin is not bad like at least the Putonghua listener would understand. However, after the real rehearsal in Hong Kong, I just feel my Putonghua is not as great as other classmates and I am worried whether the Tibetans would understand what I am saying, thus my state of mind is in a collapse situation. Fortunately, my confidence came back after continuous practicing and help from my roommate – Sunny. SO REMEMBER PRACTICES MAKE PERFECT.
