A great many Tibetan dialects are used in this region, and they differ enough from each other and from Lhasa Tibetan as to be mutually unintelligible. There are also some local languages such as Minyak that are considered separate languages and are only distantly, if at all, related to Tibetan. Many ethnic Tibetans speak Mandarin Chinese and/or the Sichuan dialect of Chinese. Younger people may also speak English.
