East Bay Cantonese Practice - Level: Intermediate to Fluent

Let's do the classic grade school activity: Show and Tell!  The twist is that it'll all be in Cantonese.  The intent is that for the entire hour each of us will take our turn to speak Cantonese about something that we bring that day.  It can be pictures from a trip, it can be about the new phone you got, just bring something.  It'll be fun!

We'll obviously meet and greet each other in English at the beginning.  However, I'd really like us to practice and learn new Cantonese vocabulary during our session, hence the "Level: Intermediate to Fluent".  I'll be bringing in a laptop to look up Cantonese words.  Feel free to bring flashcards or any other study aids that you think might benefit you or everyone else.

Afterward, we can all hang out and eat lunch too!  See you all soon!

    FYI, this dictionary website isn''t as extensive as the one you use, but the audio (pronunciation) is accurate.

      Sorry about that! My sister gave birth and I rushed back home to meet my new niece. I'll definitely come next time though!
