This book is unique in its focus on spoken Cantonese, not formal Chinese!
Goh Goh (Big Brother) and Dai Dai (Little Brother) have an unexpected visitor! Join Goh Goh and Dai Dai on their adventures around the house with Elephant.
Along the way, your child will learn everyday dialog and basic vocabulary for the living room, backyard, kitchen, bedtime routine and other daily activities.
Each word is written in traditional Chinese characters, Jyutping (and an alternate phonetic pronunciation), and English.
Vocabulary lists allow parents and children to point-and-name items on the page together. Key characters are colour-coded to their English translations.
Cantonese for Kids bilingual books include:
- My First Everyday Words in Cantonese & English
- My First Animals in Cantonese
- My First Colors in Cantonese & English
- My First Book of Things That Go! in Cantonese & English
