Ratings and Reviews
Went through the Cantonese phrase booklet and then through this app. I’m so glad I found this, it’s really amazing. It’s hard to find resources for Cantonese that are so extensive, mind you. Many thanks, again!
As I’ve already known a bit of Cantonese, I found a lot of it accurate and amazing. It sounds quite like native speakers. Perhaps all of it, but I thought the ‘au’ sounded weird is all. Maybe that’s just me.
Anyway, pretty much everything is easy to access and well organized, which I thank you.
But the in-app keyboard for searching characters was only recognizing English letters, and no Chinese symbols. Putting in 二 got ‘L’ or ‘t’. The settings seemed fine though. Though Apple does have a keyboard for Chinese, which solves that.
For suggestions, I think if you could possibly play audio in the background and have the app cycle through words, it would be mind-blowing. Though it’s already mind-blowing.
Plus, I don’t know why your Insight Guide Phrasebook for Cantonese says Cantonese speakers “speak Cantonese”, but “write/written in Mandarin Chinese”. Mandarin is also spoken, as is Cantonese, not written. The characters are Chinese, not Mandarin Chinese.
