I've noticed so many words that are very close to Mandarin and even Cantonese. Makes it easier to learn when you know Mandarin :)

It's even easier if you speak Cantonese or some other southern Chinese languages (Hakka, Minnan, Hainanese) that have kept the finals from Middle Chinese that Mandarin has lost (like -k, -t, -p, -m).

Sometimes I think they use a computer to generate these sentences by putting random words together.
