Hm, for me for the very first listening Hainanese is much closer to Mandarin (than Shanghainese). I think this can be understood for Mandarin speakers.
5 years ago - even 4 years ago - I confused Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese... All the languages around there sounded the same (except Korean as I had Korean friends). - Now I see the difference at once, I mean at once I see if it is Mandarin or not and I see if it is a Chinese dialect.
Sometimes you should force yourself to think in that dialect. Just for practice. Just for fun. - One of the biggest regrets in my life is that I have forgotten the Spanish... It was better than my Hungarian at 6...
