+Johnlong cendana teh I would recommend http://www.tvmost.com.hk/ Lots of HK ppl find their videos interesting (prob because of the sarcasm). Hm...I don't have any Malaysian friends in HK, but if I met one in the future, I'll try to make a video about it :) Thanks for watching~!

The best way to learn Cantonese is learn all the bad language so U know they try to say bad things to U!

Hi I found your channel isvery useful coz Cantonese language resources is kind of rare. May I ask if I want to translate a song in Cantonese into Juyptping, is there any app for it? :D Many thanks! :D

文子MtzCherry (6 months ago)
Trang Lê for general conversion, I would recommend https://www.chineseconverter.com/cantonesetools/en/cantonese-to-jyutping but if there are certain words that are different from how it's pronounced in the song, you can always refer to http://humanum.arts.cuhk.edu.hk/Lexis/lexi-can/ for the word-by-word translation with sample pronunciation for the most accurate result :) Glad you enjoy the video and hope it helps!

One of the popular websites people like myself have been using for many years is Cantonese.sheik.co.uk. They have a Cantonese Dictionary, Parser, forums, games, tests, lessons, etc.  I've used Cantoneseclass101, however one of the things I'm finding hard to find is a good resource for teaching my children. Most of the language resources are aimed at teaching Cantonese to adults using English. I'm looking to teach my kids Cantonese using Cantonese with comprehensible input (as show here by one of the greats Stephen Krashen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QyX9XhGX3s)

But isn’t Cantonese music usually sung in written Cantonese just because it sounds nicer? If that’s the case, how will music help?
文子MtzCherry (7 months ago)
true they are usually written in HK Chinese, in Cantonese context, probably that will still help, esp for the vocabulary base :)
Grace Njoku (7 months ago)
I started watching this Cantonese drama and it's helped me so much! The website Dramanice provides English subtitles. It's called 'The Hippocratic Crush'
Grace Njoku (7 months ago)
文子MtzCherry I’ll watch that one once I finish the Hippocratic Crush! Thank you!
文子MtzCherry (7 months ago)
Grace Njoku this was a really bit hit when it first came out! coz it reminds us of another classic called 妙手仁心 too :)

Hi thanks for the video and the recommendations :) Really appreciate it! I'm from Singapore and I'm trying to pick up Cantonese as it's my dialect group over here (my grandparents were from Guangzhou & HK). In Singapore, we are discouraged from using dialects for official use and in public so Singaporean Chinese people typically use English and Mandarin (putonghua) in schools and at work. Over the years, this has resulted in a whole generation of younger Singaporean Chinese losing their 'dialects'. Very few of my friends can understand yet alone converse in whatever dialects (Teochew, Hokkien, Hakka, Hainanese, etc). And it's only now that I worry I'm losing my roots, hence, I decided to pick up Cantonese. And it was frustrating as there seems to be a lack of resources/materials so I had to look online and talk to people who could teach me the basics. I personally find that watching TVB/drama doesn't really help me as the pace is either too fast or that I could only learn how to understand instead of learning how to speak it. I don't know if I'm too late in life to pick it up but your channel has been helpful. hahaha and my HK friends and colleagues were really happy when I tell them I love listening to Dear Jane, Supper Moment, Phil Lam and the classic performers like Beyond, 容袓兒 etc. 多謝哂!
文子MtzCherry (8 months ago)
im really sorry to hear that and thank you for deciding to pick up Cantonese again! Dialects are often being marginalized but yes, they are really valuable cultural assets that needs to be pass down. Having a common language (e.g. English or Chinese or...) is good for international communication, while our local language is equally important to preserve our identity/uniqueness in the global village too! And no worries, it's never too late to pick up a language as long as you are willing to learn >v< Add oil ar~!

Hi Cherry! First I would like to thank you for your valueable channel! As I try to learn to speak Cantonese and maybe to be able to write characters later, your channel is so good! I have recently bought the Android app, sorry iPhone users, "Hanping Cantonese Dictionary". They have a full 30 days refund. The app has a chinese handwriting recognition, Hanzi stroke animations and uses proper Cantonese dictionary words, not Mandarin with Cantonese pronunciation.
PerLin (1 year ago)
Hanping offers a soundboard there one can compare the 6 tones which is awesome since I know it is difficult for foreigners to get the tones right and also a chance to get the initials and finals right.
Ingvar K. (1 year ago)
Check Hanping Cantonese. It is the best dictionary app. They have integration with Ankidroid which is a memory cards app. Also they have a pop-up overlay that can scan your screen and give translation. It has a writing guide, audio etc. Disclaimer: only for Android. Other services and apps to look into are italki and hellotalk app
Your English is very good ! 加油 :)

stlev99 (1 year ago)
Cherry, you said something about "movies" and "drama" which wasn't clear to me. Movies are a medium; drama is a genre. So you can see drama in the movies, on tv, or on live stage. So please explain what distinction you were trying to draw: this is clearly a problem of Chinese-English translation, and I've heard it before, so I hope you can answer. Keep up the good work. Your recos are great.
文子MtzCherry (1 year ago)
thanks for sharing with me about the difference in English as well :)
stlev99 (1 year ago)
Oh I see. I figured it was just a different use of the terms. In the US, we are more likely to call this kind of "drama" a "series". Even though series doesn't inherently mean "drama", we tend to use series for your "drama", and just call the non-serious ones comedies, or sitcoms. Just a different way of looking at it. Thanks for the info.
文子MtzCherry (1 year ago)
Usually we call movies/films as 電影or戲, which are watched in the cinema/theatre. While for dramas, we usually call them 劇, which are usually broadcasted on TV (TV Drama=電視劇) e.g. Sherlock Hope it makes sense to you ^ ^ Let me know if there is any other problem ^ ^
redveluver (1 year ago)
Thank you for ur videos! There isn't much resources about learning Cantonese so I really appreciate your videos that much more. I grew up in Canada without really needing to speak Cantonese...so my Cantonese is HORRIBLE. Can't wait to see more Cantonese lessons!

That would be super great if you could put Cantonese subtitles on your videos! It is always hard to find good channels that use Canto subtitles. Thankfully it seems that more people are doing that these days.

Wow, really so glad to hear that! Please help to teach more people and make Cantonese last forever!
Cantonés Online (1 year ago)
You're welcome. I really hope there are more channels or resources in spanish to teach cantonese, because in Latinamerica the chinese communities is almost cantonese territory.
MrTsiqsin (1 year ago)
I just knew your channel!! Can't believe there are some Spanish speakers who teach Cantonese as well. Thank you very much!!!
BigBoss (1 year ago)
Thank you for the recommendations. I would like to further add-on and recommend that cantonese learners search for "a comprehensive grammar by stephen matthews" on google, it takes a bit of finding but you can find and download one for free and i think its a great resource. Secondly, i highly recommend cantodict website. It is by far the most comprehensive cantonese-english dictionary based on my experience and a fantastic resource, cheers!

Gene (1 year ago)
Thanks mtzcherry! Been subscribing for the last couple months and love your videos. They are bite sized and easy to digest, I especially like the ones you show in context with your daily life (e.g. movie watching). Just curious also what your motivation is to teach Cantonese? I often feel concerned that the dialect is fading vs more mainstream Mandarin, so really appreciate your work here!
文子MtzCherry (1 year ago)
Thanks for your support Gene! Actually, my dad had recommended me to speak Mandarin on YouTube as that might reach more viewers. However, as a Hongkonger (although im just a small potato), I feel that it is necessary to use it more frequently and let more people to know about how vibrant and interesting this language is ^ ^

Free Apps: Anki/memrise flashcards apps, hello talk, Pleco. For free resources I think it is very limited on what you can get put cantoneseclass101.com does have some free stuff that is ok but you can't get access to the good stuff without paying. Probably the best free resource I have seen is popupcantonese: http://popupcantonese.com/
frogfrog (1 year ago)
yay for Cantonese music recommendations :-) I would also like to recommend Pleco dictionary! it has a wider range of vocabulary
Hanping Chinese (1 year ago)
Cantodict is included (offline) in our Android app: Hanping Cantonese Dictionary https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.embermitre.hanping.cantodict.app.pro
Luke Truman (1 year ago)
if you pay a little bit you can get it to show you stroke order, radicals ect and even get optical character recognition. Its the best I have seen for cantonese. For laptop check out: http://www.cantonese.sheik.co.uk/dictionary/ The dictionary is awesome with examples and some text to speech and the forums are really useful for asking questions too :)
文子MtzCherry (1 year ago)

Very useful. I include your vlog as a useful resource. I refer to your site often for both learning and entertainment. The shopping phrases were very useful for instance. I tried Cantonese 101. it was pretty good but it was sometimes hard to put all the parts together.

Hi Cherry. I was wondering if you have any recommendations of places to visit in Hong Kong during August?
Jimmy Knoxville (1 year ago)
MtzCherry Thank you!
文子MtzCherry (1 year ago)
If it doesn’t rain, you may join one of those tours organised by “Walk in HK”. If it rains, I would recommend going to Comix House Base, watching Omnimax show in Space Museum, K11, or joining some interesting local workshops/events (from http://timable.com/en/) As for food, personal favourite would be cart noodles (https://www.theloophk.com/best-cart-noodles-in-hong-kong/) and Tam Jai Sam Jor Mixian (they have lots of outlets across HK) Hope you enjoy the trip! >v<
文子MtzCherry (1 year ago)
apart from the must-go tourist spots, I would recommend going to the museums and newly opened cafes/eateries with interesting HK style interior design (coz it's too hot & humid some times =v='') i can search for a few spots and share it here again later tonight!
I have a recomendation free App HINATIVE you can conect with people arround the wold and their correct your pronunciation with audio examples in diferents lengaujes. And for the people how speak spanish and wanna learn cantonese this channel : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy4QIgSVGZ3ygGa1G7AOriQ
