I happened to find a very good Cantonese learning video by MissYau’s Asian-SuperAsian Channel.
We can learn these “Scary” Cantonese expressions:
- 你玩嘢啊?（lei wan yeh ah?) Are you kidding (me)? Playing games?
- 你买定棺材啊你！（lei mai ding goon choi ah lei.) Put a down payment on your coffin. Or get your coffin ready. It’s a threat or curse. Are you scared yet? Watch this fun video.
- 唔好煩啊你 （Mm – mo – fan – ah – lei. ) Don’t be a nuisance. Or “Stop bothering me.”
Please note that she does not use Jyutping. For Jyutping, it is like this:
More and more people are using “lei” instead of “nei” for 你(you), even for people older than me.
Is it SCARY Cantonese or not, but it’s basic Cantonese, or colloquial Cantonese. It is Cantonese youtube, or Youtube Cantonese lesson. Way to go MissYau!
Maria Wong created a great food channel in Youtube. Unlike others, her videos are all made with her heart and we really love it.
This week she teaches how to make “Fried Prawns in spicy sauce”:
You don’t need to understand all the Cantonese she speaks here, but at least the first sentence:
Jyutping:daai6gaa1 hou2 gam1 jat6 cyu4si1 gaai3siu6 zou6 gwo3 gon3siu1 daai6 haa1
Hello everyone, today the chef introduce (teach) how to make a “dry burn big shrimp (Fried Prawns in spicy sauce)”.
She repeated “daai6 haa1” (prawns) or just “haa1″(shrimps) many times.
Stay tuned, we will help to learn Cantonese as well as Maria’s cooking. She is from Hong Kong and lives in Germany.
This is an advanced Cantonese lesson, which trains your listening comprehension, but the beginners can pick up some basic phrases from her speech too.
Although we had this on this site before, but here is a new version with a little girl learning to say “Happy Mother’s Day”
mŭ qīn jié kuài lè
母 亲 节 快 乐
Mandarin first, then Cantonese,then Mandarin word by word again.
From ChineseBay, we all wish you a great Mother’s Day ever!
I really want to tell you how much miss my mother in Guangzhou. I have not seen her for nearly four years.
Where or how can you learn Cantonese in Singapore?
I must thank all ChineseBay visitors from Singapore who encourage us to open a special section here at ChineseBay.com for more people in Singapore to learn Cantonese online.
ChineseBay is now based in Silicon Valley, Northern California, USA, but we got lots of visitors all over the world and a look at our alexa ranking ( refer to http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/chinesebay.com ) Today, our ranking is Singapore is 77,731 while US ranking is 118,445 among millions of web sites globally.
