Thoughts on Cantonese?

Recommended Posts

PRLDynasty424

I am sort of interested in  learning Cantonese. Anyone have any good  resources from it?

 

I know it  is less  useful of a language than  say Mandarin, but  idk I find the  culture  and  tones of the language fascinating and almost more  colorful than Mandarin.

 

Any native Cantonese speakers here, and thoughts on learning it?

I picked up a little bit in Hong Kong when I lived there. I've thought about making more of a dedicated effort to learn myself. It might be far less useful than Mandarin but was such a tiny region I would say it has a much more abundant world of media such as good films and music that you could get into than PR China or even Taiwan.

The Pleco app also has extensive Cantonese support. Words HK is a free dictionary with example sentences.

not sure where you're located but the community college in SF has conversational classes, UCSF has 1-unit non-elective classes, and if you're interested in health and medical terminology, you'll find lotsa bilingual materials like at sfhp.org. of course, i'm gonna do a plug (hope that's ok), i have a YT channel at: https://www.youtube.com/user/notnowigottago and podcast at: https://soundcloud.com/leslie-frank-643243096
