I believe in learning a new language through short but interesting stories, such as the following joke - The Class Orangutan
It is interesting that different Cantonese characters can share the same pronunciation that sometimes creates an innocent joke. Let's look at some necessary vocabularies before reading the following article.
老師 [lou5 si1] = teacher
同學 [tung4 hok6] = classmate
重要 [jung6 yiu3] = important
星星 [sing1 sing1] = star
猩猩 [sing1 sing1] = orangutan (animal)
Feel free to message me anytime,
regarding this article or simply being curious about Cantonese!
Before the test, the teacher was helping the students by focusing on the key topics of the lesson. The teacher said, “This topic is very important. Mark this section with a star.”
