If you could sum up Learn Cantonese - Level 1: Introduction to Cantonese - Volume 1: Lessons 1-25 in three words, what would they be?
Helpful, but unfinished?
What did you like best about this story?
The tones section was very helpful as this is usually overlooked by other courses.
Did the narrator do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Yes, the narration was good.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
There were some strange issues with this audio course. One common issue was that they kept repeating themselves, but each time a little differently. It sounded like they recorded things twice for the editors, but forgot to remove the double ups? Also, there were two almost identical tones lessons... but again they were slightly different. Really strange!
What made the experience of listening to Learn Cantonese - Level 1: Introduction to Cantonese - Volume 1: Lessons 1-25 the most enjoyable?
The whole thing is like having lunch with friends. It's way better than the usual language course. It actually lacks the huge vocabulary that the others tend to have, but they give you the tools you need to find your own vocabulary. They have a website that has lots of stuff that supplements the book. Another wierd and good thing is that each chapter pretty much stands on it's own, sort of podcast style. But you can tell it's carefully planned and somewhat scripted. Like a podcast, you can jump around and it all still makes sense. Although don't skip the chapter on tones. Some of the chapters are about food, Hong Kong culture and history, and all of it is fun,
