The first 5 fun Cantonese phrases were picked because they are the 5 most common phrases heard in Hong Kong homes.

  1. 大菌食細菌
  2. …到連呀媽都唔認得
  3. …到飛起
  4. 我食鹽多過你食米
  5. 等到頸都長

It’s part of the fun in learning these and after you read my blog post these Cantonese phrases will make sense and prove to be useful.

About Learn Chinese with NihaoHello

Jodee Lim is a Singaporean mom who is currently living in Estonia with her husband. Jodee and her husband are raising their cute and clever girl to speak Mandarin, English, Estonian and Hungarian. Jodee is bilingual, she speaks English and Chinese, and she started NihaoHello for English speakers wanting to learn Chinese in 2008. Cooking is another big part of her life, so Jodee started a food blog called Deelish Recipes in May of 2010 and has recipes from over 50 countries.

I originally found Jodee through her food blog (I am always looking for a great food blog with amazing Chinese recipes). Then, she introduced me to her Chinese Learning blog – NihaoHello as well, which I love because finding a great Chinese learning blog with amazing resources is hard.

NihaoHello is a blog that provides useful posts for English speakers who want to learn Mandarin Chinese. It is not Chinese learning methods and tips, but also provides great resources such as:

  • Chinese cultures
  • Chinese taboos
  • Interesting Chinese Proverbs
  • Chinese characters writing
  • Useful travel Chinese Phrases, etc.
