    My M-I-L is also Hakka and she speaks to me in a mixture of Hakka and Canto - so I have had to learn a bit just so I know wtf she is on about. She'll start a sentence in canto and will have slipped to hakka by the end. Gets very confusing...

    my m-i-l speaks canto with a hakka accent... i sometimes can't understand what she is saying (maybe i just don't want to..>LOL) but when my hubby says exactly the same thing to me in his cantonese accent, i understand...well some of it anyway, i've never taken a lesson...

    The hakka speakers in UK were doing it so that other BBCs couldn't understand them dissing others. BBCs in the UK was not an exclusive enough group for them... haha!

    there actually alot of hakka people in uk, they usually don't mind speaking hakka, I find its hakka people in hk who tends not to speak it (after all it is a course and slightly primatrive dialect)
