Will you ever learn Cantonese?
I don’t know. But this book will give you a fighting chance.
This book does NOT have the secret key to learning Cantonese. It’s not another resource telling you that you just need to “immerse yourself”, or that you can “pick it up naturally”.
Instead, we go step by step through the language-learning advice you’re likely to get from well-meaning Cantonese speakers, and explain why these intuitively logical ideas don’t ultimately work for most people. This “via negativa” will prepare you to avoid time-wasting mistakes, so that you can reach your language-learning goals!
