10 Word Cantonese
How You Can be Understood in Cantonese
Chapter 1

Click to print text version of this page

You now have a very rudimentary understanding and usage of ‘everyday’ Cantonese!

In the next Chapter, we expand the above sections as your familiarity with sounds and competence of usage grows. We will look at Colours, People, Jewellery and add some more basic words. This is exactly how I learned to speak this language

We also introduce lots more useful words and dialogue: such as specific foods, and phrases for daily living. This will also become more proactive in introducing Cantonese Culture – because language is also, always - an expression of a peoples cultural identity, ways of life and thinking…

Well Done You!
