Learning Cantonese is a Piece of Cake?
Hi 老外 (lo wi) ! So you think Cantonese is a piece of cake because of your good Putonghua? Surely knowledge of Putonghua is useful when learning Cantonese, but you need to be careful of ‘false friends’ or you will suffer from interference rather than help! Is there a pattern how Putonghua differs from Cantonese in terms of pronunciation and vocabulary? Join our talk and explore! (Putonghua speaking foreigners who plan to learn or learning Cantonese are most welcomed)
