    I strongly encourage you to learn Cantonese. When I first arrived here, people told me to learn Mandarin instead. But after picking up Cantonese, I find learning Mandarin easy and can understand basic words. Is like learning 2 languages in 1. They are very similar, pronouncing is a bit different, slang is completely different though.

    However do it for the sake of learning the language. Depending on where you work/live, you will never need ot know a single word of Cantonese.
