I am considering learning Cantonese. I have a few friends who can speak it so I can speak it to them and get practice. Has anyone else learned it? If yes, can you please give me advice on how to practice and master the tone changes? That's the hardest part of the language, especially for me considering my voice is naturally very monotonous.
Mandarin is supposedly the most used language on the planet.
Maybe, start with that.
There should be the most training info available on Mandarin.
Then, learning the differences of Cantonese might be easier.
I can't speak either one.
But, I want to learn Mandarin because it is so widely used.
I don't have any chines related blood in my veins..but people keep missunderstand me as a chinese..eventhough I'm a Malay actually..
I really like to learn Mandarin/Cantonese as my additional language..but yet still have no ti,e..got to pay lot of attention to my studies anyway..From what I heard it is really difficult to learn the language...with the way how to write those words..how to pronounce them...
