Cantonese is one of the languages spoken in China. It is not a dialect of the invented "Chinese language". It is a language itself, such as Mandarin. The only difference is that Mandarin is the official one, and Cantonese is not.

Mandarin is the official language of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc. It is wrong to call it Chinese, because there is another language in China, called Cantonese. They are not dialects of the invented "Chinese" language, but languages themselves. In China, there are many languages, Chinese Languages, but only one is official, and it is called Mandarin or "Putonghua".

Castilian is the official language of Spain and all the countries that have been colonized by Spain (Almost all the Latin American countries). The term 'Spanish' is a slip-up.

You oughtn't forget that 4 languages are spoken in Spain (Spanish languages) which are Castilian (Official one) Galician, Catalan, and Basque.
