Hoi hoi! Everybody everywhere, I can’t say this often enough: When you’re learning Cantonese: Get your course material in order. Something like the folder above, purchased by R, separating the material into categories, clearly labelled. R’s Canto ability increased by 20% the week she started to use the folder.
Also, make your own handy dictionary by entering all new words into a small notebook with index. A is for Apple, B is for Bastard and you put Expressions under X! If you’re not learning Cantonese and you live in hong Kong, do yourself a favour and start today.
