I"m a little confused, would like to clarify this sentence: ziu1 zou2 zung6 wan1 zo2 syu1 tim

ziu1 zou2 - morning

wan1 zo2 syu1- studied

what does zung6 mean?

Hi Blake,


Thank you very much for your comment!

You can find wan1 syu1 in the vocab list now, under (2) Lesson Materials, or in the Lesson Notes PDF.


It's amazing that you already know so many words for "study"! I didn't realize Cantonese is so complicated haha, but each terms are a little different than the others:

duk6 syu1 -> to study as in reading a book; to attend school or college

lin6 zaap6 -> to practice; to train

hok6 zaap6 -> to study as in learning new knowledge

wan1 zaap6 -> review, study (homework, lesson, etc.)

fuk1 zaap6 -> revision; to revise; go over; review; brush up


so wan1 syu1 and wan1 zaap6 are really similar, with wan1 syu1 being a bit more colloquial :wink:

Keep up the good work!:thumbsup:

These aren't super easy. I have worked my way through the Beginner, Upper Beginner, Lower Intermediate and am halfway through the Intermediate podcast and I still do not get these on the first try.


I appreciate these because I feel like listening comprehension is something I need to improve on for sure. One of the issues is how I approach words I haven't approached before in real time. This lesson was the first time I have (knowingly) encountered wan1 syu1 for study. I had previously learned duk6 syu1, lin6 jaap6, hok6 jaap6, fuk6 jaap1, wan1 jaap6 for review/study/practice. And wan1 syu1 isn't even on the vocab list for the lesson.


Once again, thanks for doing these but I would be lying if I said it wasn't a little frustrating. Is the intent that an Absolute Beginner should be able to listen to the audio once at real speed and be able to answer the question correctly?
