Hi Chak,


Thank you so much for your encouragement! Great to hear that our material is helpful and this makes the whole thing so meaningful. Thanks! :heart:


1.้†ซ็”Ÿ (ji1 sang1) means "doctor" and ่พฆๅ…ฌๅฎค(baan6 gung1 sat1) usually means "business office".

2.ไบ‹ๅ‹™ๆ‰€ (si6 mou6 so) is the place you get your job done.

3.้†ซๅ‹™ๆ‰€(ji1 mou6 so2) means "clinic".


So using (Ji1 sang1 si6 mou6 so2) or (ji1 mou6 so2) is better in this context. :smile:


You are right that ็”Ÿๅญ˜ means "survival" or "survive". It can be noun or verb. ๆ„็พฉ is a noun which means "meaning" or "significance" .


You are right again that โ€œๆฏ”่ผƒโ€ means "compare" or "relatively.... ". I guess the speaker tries to compare with the price of the air mail.

You can definitely say ๆตท้‹ๆ…ข๏ผŒไธ้Žๅนณ? It is short and clear. :thumbsup:


Great t hear that you like our website and please visit more often because there are always something new and updated material coming up. :smile:

Hello,


Thank you for the great material you have provided so far.

I have a few questions:


Would it be okay to say:


* Ji1 sang1 baan6 gung1 instead of Ji1 sang1 si6 mou6 so2?


* ไฝขๅ˜…็”Ÿๅญ˜ๆ„็พฉๅฐฑไฟ‚ๅนซไบบใ€‚

- This was translated as: Her purpose in life was to help other people.

Doesn't ็”Ÿๅญ˜ mean 'survival'? And what does ๆ„็พฉ exactly mean?


* ๆตท้‹ๆฏ”่ผƒๆ…ข๏ผŒไธ้Žๆฏ”่ผƒๅนณใ€‚

- This was translated as: Ocean shipping is slow, but it's also fairly cheap.

Why is "ๆฏ”่ผƒ" added in this sentence? I believe it's the word for 'compare' but I'm not sure to what I am comparing the shipment price with. Would it be okay to just say: ๆตท้‹ๆ…ข๏ผŒไธ้Žๅนณ?


Again, thank you for the hard work. I have been looking for some comprehensive Cantonese audio movies and am glad I found your website.
