Customer Reviews

First episode

The podcast has some wonderful teaching lessons and they are all very interactive. It definitely keeps the lessons interesting and listeners can learn Cantonese while having fun. However, I am an American-born Chinese myself. American-English is my first language, then I went to Hong Kong to study my Cantonese as my second language, British English as my third, Mandarin Chinese as my fourth. I later went back to United States to pick up my first language, American English again and learned Spanish and so forth. (And always have to take classes to review other languages that I do not use daily). Because of my unique experience with learning different languages and also learning American English twice, I was a bit disappointed with how the first episode talks about how Hong Kong-ese people discourage and have this “wall” against foreigners learning their language when we all know every country have their own pride about their language and their culture. I thought the first episode only point out how Caucasians are especially having more difficulty learning Cantonese is not a well-rounded fact when not just Hong Kong-ese people do so, for example, ESL (English as a Second Language minority) students often experience discrimination or being a laugh at with their poor understanding or pronunciation with English especially when they are in another country. This is the same thing with any race or anyone. It is really common with any foreign language learners not just Caucasian Cantonese learners. And when you are traveling, if you do not look like you are from the country, that means you are a foreigner, of course people will expect you to speak another language.

Making learning fun

What a great site I never knew learning a language could be so fun. I highly recommend these lessons even if you learn just a little you'll have a great time learning it and a lot of laughs along the way. Regards, Nick

Pretty good, overall

I like these lessons - they're pretty simple and fun to learn, but even though the lady teaching it has awesome pronunciation, the interview lady keeps on messing me up because she pronounces it wrong all the time... It's driving me crazy!
