Could not find a response for this anywhere, but does Cantonese count towards practical language requirement for INSEAD?

If so, can one do Mandarin as a exit language?

Here's what I found: one or the other, it seems.

Please note that we take into account linguistic similarities between the Exit language and the declared Entry languages.
For example INSEAD will not allow the following combinations:
Danish-Norwegian-Swedish
Finnish-Estonian
Bahasa Indonesia-Bahasa Malaysia
Dutch-Afrikaans
Slovak-Czech
Croatian-Serbian-Bosnian-Macedonian
Mandarin-Cantonese-Taiwanese-Hokkien
Hindi-Urdu
(Several Indian national languages are also linguistically similar – please check with the Admissions Office
for confirmation)

I can confirm that you can only use either Mandarin or Cantonese to fulfil one of your languages. They are not viewed by INSEAD as 2 different languages.

Thank you for the responses.
So I am Australian with Cantonese as my mother tongue, however I am unable to read or write (there is no official written form of Cantonese, I believe the written form is Mandarin which I only have basic knowledge of). Could this still count as practical knowledge in a second language?

Most likely not because you would have to provide proof/evidence of the language assessed to practical level (which is a higher level than basic level) in both oral and written forms.

I would enter Cantonese as your native language, for which you should not (i did not) have to prove. I then put English under fluent. Ended up with an interview, so it worked for me. Hopefully it works for you too!
