Hi Lalla Ward,
Thank you for your message, we're sorry for the confusion, this list will be updated soon. You're right, we want to provide information that learners can easily understand and use in daily conversation. ?
I agree with other comments, below: it's so confusing to be given different versions of phrases in different bits of the site; I appreciate that there are lots of ways of saying "my name is..." (I am called, I am...) but when you are at the very beginning of this marathon of learning, to find here that "you're welcome" is "bat1 jung6 haak3 hei3" whereas elsewhere it's "m5 sai2 haak3 hei3" is demoralising!!
I think I understand now that the discrepancy is because one is the written version and one the spoken? Please, please do make this clear! As others have said, we new learners are likely to go to 'key phrases', and we need to know what they are about!!!!
Hello Simon Fraser,
Thank you for your comment and letting us knowing that you are interested in the spoken form.
I really like the Survival Phrases Lesson because it provides lot of useful daily conversation in spoken form. ?
I've just seen the other comments. I'm also only interested in the spoken forms
Good vocab but a lot of these phrases are very different from the standard ones I have been learning.
Thank you so much for letting us know. Appreciate your great help and patience. We will fix it as soon as possible.
