MY FIRST REAL CONVERSATION IN CANTONESE

February 20, 2011

This is an audioclip of a conversation I had on skype a month or so ago with a friend from Hong Kong with whom I went to school with. This is one of the first '' real'' conversations I had in Cantonese. The sound quality is not very good, I made a lot of mistakes , some of which I would not normally make, and sometimes I threw in some English words, since I could not remember how to say them in Cantonese.

Anyways, I decided to post it to make a record of my progress. There is a link below to my very first recording ever made,posted in my defunct blog ,Cantostories, so that you can have an idea of my improvement.

Please note that this conversation is just impromptu speech, therefore bound to more mistakes, whereas in the other recording at Cantostories I rehearsed a number of times and had my friends correcting my poor grammar.

I am looking forward to hearing your criticisms and observations!
