Hello Adam R,
I agree that both 正(zeng3) and 廁所(ci3 so2) are pretty useful words in Cantonese. 👍
I'm with Dan B: Wayne's World not only taught me 正，but also 厕所.
Hi Dan B,
Thank you for your comments! That's great to hear. Let us know if you have any questions.
I learned 3 phrases not knowing that it was Cantonese at the time。。。垃手，拍手，同埋膀手
But maybe 正 was my first word, which I learned from "Wayne's World".
My first Cantonese word was father (父親).
靚仔(leng3 zai2) is "good-looking boy".
靚女(leng3 neoi2) is "pretty girl".
My boyfriend is cantonese and tought me nei hou liang zai (hello handsome. As a joke. :laughing:
That's great!! Having a friend who speaks the language natively can help you progress in Cantonese greatly! :thumbsup:
Keep up the good work!
My Cantonese friend from Hong Kong taught me the correct pronunciation of "nei hou" when we walked to class together one day. :sunglasses:
