DO YOU KNOW?
|Cantonese is the predominant Chinese language spoken in Hong Kong and Macau.||
|Because of the use by non-Mandarin-speaking speakers overseas, Cantonese is the primary form of Chinese that Westerners come into contact with.||
|Although Cantonese shares much vocabulary with Mandarin Chinese, the two languages are not mutually intelligible largely because of pronunciation and grammatical differences.||好高興認識你呀!
Nice to meet you!
|Cantonese has the most developed literature of any form of Chinese after Classical Chinese and Mandarin. It is used primarily in Hong Kong and in overseas Chinese communities, so it is usually written with traditional Chinese characters.||我喜歡廣東話。
I like Cantonese
I plan to go to China. Is Cantonese the right language to learn?
It depends on which part of China you are going to visit. Cantonese is often used in Guangdong Province, eastern part of Guangxi Province, Hong Kong and Macau and some other parts of Asia.
If you plan to travel around China, it is recommended that you learn Mandarin instead.
How many tones are there in Cantonese?
There are 6 tones in the Cantonese language.
I heard that Cantonese is a conversational language and it is not possible to write in Cantonese. Is this true?
This is not correct. There is also written form of Cantonese. Cantonese is usually written with traditional Chinese characters and includes extra characters and characters with different meanings from Standard Written Chinese.
What system does SLS teach in Cantonese class: Jyupting system (check my spelling) or Yale system?
At SLS, we currently use Jyuping system, not Yale system, but we can quickly cover how to transfer between these two systems so you can understand the difference and switch in Lesson 1 and 2.
If previously I learn with Yale system, can I still join your class in higher level?
AS we do have the table to explain the diffrence between Jyupting system and Yale system and you can understand how to transfer them, you can join the class once you understand the rules.
