Step1: Listen to real Cantonese with an extensive library of spontaneous conversations between different speakers on interesting topics. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in real, spoken Cantonese from Hong Kong, wherever you live! Available in a combination of audio and video, you’ll feel like you’re there in the room, and be able to listen in the way that suits you.
Step 2: Follow along with the transcript (characters or jyutping) so you improve your listening comprehension. This is the key to becoming a better listener. When you can follow along with every word that’s spoken, you’ll realise you actually know far more than you think! The transcripts allow you to identify words that might be rushed, “swallowed”, or even omitted by the speaker, equipping you to understand the way real Hong Kong’ers actually talk! By listening to the conversations multiple times, and following along with every word in the transcript, you’ve discovered the most natural, holistic way to learn Cantonese.
Step 3: Achieve 100% comprehension of every little detail with full English translations. When you watch TV or listen to podcasts, most of what you hear goes way over your head. With Cantonese Conversations, not only can you go back and listen as many times as you want, but you have a full English translation of everything that’s said, so if you can’t pick up what you need from the transcriptions alone, you can still get the satisfaction of understanding the conversations.
Step 4: Reinforce difficult vocabulary with bilingual word lists. There’s nothing more frustrating than not understanding what a word means. The word lists at the end of every conversation give you a quick-reference way to check the meaning of every difficult word you hear. Just like the transcripts, word lists come with Chinese characters and jyutping romanisation, so you’ll never be stuck, and can learn in the way you prefer. Want to find a word later, without going back through the entire conversation? Maybe you want to sit down and study all the vocabulary on one topic you like? No problem, we’ve done all the hard work and laid it all out for you.
