    They speak Mandarin with local idiosyncrasies. There's also a regional dialect.

    And no, Elena S, there's more more than one official language in China. And really, Mandarin is just Beijing dialect legitimized as the main language of China by virtue of the seat of government being there.

    The local dialect is Wuhanese, which is a distinct language, but most residents can also speak Mandarin, the national language.

    In Wuhan they speak local dialect... watch this video (, sounds nothing like Putonghua(Mandarin).... It's like trying to understand a drunk Scottish man, I even struggle to understand some Scots even when their soba and i'm from Cambridge UK.

    there is only one official language in China -- Chinese language...

    some people carelessly call it Mandarin (odd word)...

    but in fact people in Wuhan don't speak it, or rather speak it with a strong local accent... kinda dialect... you can only hear official language in the northern provinces and on TV...

    but they don't speak Cantonese, which is only spoken in the south of China HK, Guangdong...
