Cantonese Lessons

Cantonese Chinese is one of the major dialects of the Chinese language. It is the second-most spoken language in China behind Mandarin Chinese.

The Cantonese dialect first originated in the Southeastern parts of China, mainly from the city of Canton. It is still spoken in many parts of the region and is an integral language in places such as Hong Kong and Macau. It is known for sharing a lot of vocabulary with Mandarin (the most widely spoken language in China), although these languages are not mutually intelligible. Today, Cantonese has about 80 million native speakers.

Is it easy to learn Cantonese?

Cantonese is not easy to learn. This is especially true for English speakers, who must get used to a new alphabet and set of sounds. Plus, the intonation and pronunciation of Chinese can be tough to learn for those speaking English as a native language. The difficulty of learning Cantonese is a big reason why you should hire an experienced teacher to help you. TakeLessons is a great resource for experienced Chinese tutors, offering the best online Cantonese lessons or in-person sessions with experienced Cantonese teachers.

How do I learn Cantonese?

You can learn Cantonese in a multitude of ways. You can start by taking online courses and watching video lessons on YouTube and other platforms. From there, it helps to immerse yourself in the culture, finding someone who speaks Cantonese to have basic conversations with. Though you can start to learn Cantonese by yourself, the best way is to take private lessons with certified Cantonese teachers. TakeLessons is a great resource for finding lessons with the best teachers, offering you the flexibility of online or in-person learning.
