I speak Wu Chinese as my mother tongue, though Mandarin is also native to me. So do my family members.

In terms of the number of speakers, Wu (Sino-Tibetan : Sinitic : Southern) is the second largest language in China and the 10th largest in the world. It is a soft and light language spoken mainly in the Jiang-Nan region, i.e., southern part of Jiangsu, Shanghai and Zhejiang. It is very different from Mandarin in many aspects (details here).
