Learn Cantonese Podcasts
The Cantonese language is one of many within Chinese. Technically, its origins are in the city of Guangzhou (also known as Canton), the capital of Guangdong Province, but is also spoken in the surrounding area of southeastern China.
Cantonese is the standard form of Yue Chinese, one of the major subgroups of Chinese and often people will say “Cantonese” to mean this large subgroup of languages.
Although Cantonese shares some vocabulary with Mandarin, the two varieties are very different in pronunciation, grammar, etc.
Many Chinese people fled their homelands throughout history and landed in Cantonese-speaking regions of China. And when these people moved overseas, they generally took their languages with them. So you’ll find Cantonese being spoken around the world, with many Kung Fu schools embracing this Southern language.
That being said, since most people turn to Mandarin study purposes of business, etc., the number of Cantonese Chinese Language Learning Podcasts is relatively few, compared to that of Learn Mandarin Podcasts. Hopefully, it will grow in time.
But for now, enjoy, listen, and learn to the selection below. It might help to familiarize yourself with Chinese Romanization along the way as well. The article “8 Tips for Learning Kung Fu or other Martial Arts” might help as well, as the tips can be applied to learning anything really.
