Have you made any New Year resolutions this year? I have. One of them is total world domination by Cantonese – while allowing the other languages to live too. Yes, that’s just the kind of fundamentalist I am.
This year we’ll see a greater emphasis on practical learning, i.e. learning by doing. And by doing I mean: Drinking in bars, ordering food in restaurants (with a crash course in reading a Chinese menu thrown in) – going to Shenzhen and Guangzhou, taking taxis etc.
For what wait you? Throw yourself into Canto this month and be fluent before Christmas! Time waits for no man. The more people in your group, the less each person has to pay. Make 2013 the year you finally conquered the Canto.
