I bought this book + CDs after I finished another Cantonese text for beginners. If you already have some knowledge on Cantonese, this book really helps you learning more words and colloquial expressions.

Talk about Colloquial Cantonese: The Complete Course for Beginners


Fani
There isn't much materials out there to learn Cantonese, so I was very happy to find such a quality product. The speech is clear and by native speakers. The dialogue is "colloquial", so they will be useful. The Chinese is in Yale romanization - no Chinese characters.

I bought the CD and uploaded it to my iPhone. I bought the Kindle version also so I can follow along on-the-go.

Tip 1: If you plan to do use an iPhone, I recommend just buy the book. The Kindle version has a lot of formatting issues when read on the iPhone. The table of context does not work either, so you have to scroll. The Kindle version's table of context does work on my iMac, however.

Tip 2: To get the most out of this book, learn Yale Romanization or Jyutping (which are very similar) beforehand, so you get the most out of this book.

Colloquial Cantonese: A Complete Language Course (Colloquial Series)

I have ordered quite a few Cantonese language courses; CD's and books, but this has been the best I have found so far. The CD and the book work together well and the spoken Cantonese on the CD is clear and well enunciated, and the kind of language one might actually use as opposed to some of the stilted and contrived discourse I have seen in other sources.

I highly recommend this book and CD together.

In my view, this book isn't very useful without the CD, just as the CD isn't very useful without the book. When combined with the CD, I like the presentation of the material as well as the exercises. With the CD, the format is similar to the Teach Yourself package, but the presentation and content are quite different. For a language like Cantonese, and probably most other spoken languages, it's very helpful to have audio materials. I wouldn't want this book by itself, but it's been helpful when combined with the CD.

You should NOT buy this book if: 1) you are going to Hong-Kong for a week, and want to get the basics of the language. 2) you already know Mandarin or any other language using Chinese characters.
Why? The first 10 or so words you learn are different kinds of fruit. You have to memorize all these to be able to go on to the exercises. This may be fine if you intend to get a huge vocabulary, but for most beginners, 10 different fruits are not the most urgent need. The book goes on in the same way with chunks of specialised but not necessarily useful words.
The next problem is that hardly any Chinese characters are used, so you get little or no help from your possible previous knowledge of Chinese or Japanese. I bought the book, because it provided CDs with the text, and I still think that's its main advantage. I still haven't learnt Cantonese very well, but I've started using another book (Teach Yourself) in parallel, and that helps a lot.

Very good course, but when I ordered it, it came without CDs, without which it is useless if you're unfamiliar with Cantonese pronunciation and tones. These I had to order separately. Why they even sell it without CDs is a mystery.

Another major weakness is the lack of Chinese characters in the book. There are sections named "Recognizing Chinese characters" which introduce some basic vocab in characters, but it would be great if the dialogues, vocabulary and discussions of grammatical particles etc. included characters. This would be helpful, especially to those of us who are already familiar with Mandarin.

This all said, it is an excellent intro to the Cantonese language and I am raring to use what I've learned in Hong Kong.

One thing I don't like about this book is that all the Cantonese sentences are written only in alphabet. If you already know Chinese characters, it is much easier to remember words and expressions if written in Chinese characters.

I was yet another purchaser tricked. I naturally presumed that the accompanying CD's come with the book but NO they want you to purchase them separately. I should nave read the reviews. please do not fall for this!!
Did not have most of the Chinese character I was hoping for with the new vocabulary of each chapter. Spent almost 60 dollars for this book on kindle. Some of the Cantonese seem a little off.
