Come Learn and Speak the Taiwanese Language

Hi Everyone,

I will be hosting a "Come Learn and Speak the Taiwanese Language" seminar at the Taiwanese American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Los Angeles Office on Thursday (September 20, 2012) at 6:45 PM.

This seminar will be conducted in English and targeted to the younger generation here.

I will introduce Taiwanese language tools such as Pehoeji (白話字) and Daighi Tongiong Pingim (台語通用拼音).

I will also introduce good resources available such as the Maryknoll Taiwanese Dictionaries and Andrew Wu`s (吳崑松) Taiwanese dictionary (taiwanese - mandarin, entirely in traditional chinese characters) in both hardbound books and the android/iphone apps available to us.

I will disclose 6 basic and distinct tones used in Taiwanese to get by and how to recognize the tones.

Depending on time we may also do numbers - how to count/say your age verses student number, telephone number, raffle number, year, etc.

Som variations in certain Taiwanese words - Haikou(海口)speech and Yilan (宜蘭) speech (two places in Taiwan with distinct Taiwanese speech).

Also how to say/spell your Taiwanese name in Pehoeji (POJ) and Daighi Tongiong Pingim (DT) based on your written Chinese name.
