A curated Cantonese word frequency list Are you looking for unconventional ways to speed up the process of learning Cantonese? Then this book is exactly what you are looking for. Following the Pareto principle (80/20 rule), this book is built to streamline the learning process by concentrating on the core words and sentence structures that make up everyday conversations. The result is a unique vocabulary book with 2000 of the most important Cantonese words and phrases ordered by their frequency of use. Who this Cantonese learning book is for: This book is for beginners and intermediate learners of Cantonese who are self-motivated and willing to spend 15 to 20 minutes a day on learning vocabularies. The simple structure of this vocabulary book is the result of taking all unnecessary things out allowing the learning effort to solely be spent on the parts that help you make the biggest progress in the shortest amount of time. If you are willing to put in 20 minutes of learning every day, this book is very likely the single best investment you can make if you are at a beginner or intermediate level. You will be amazed at the speed of progress within a matter of just weeks of daily practice. Who this Cantonese frequency list is not for: This book is not for you if you are an advanced learner of Cantonese. In this case, please go to our website or search for our Cantonese vocabulary book which comes with more vocabularies and is grouped by topic which is ideal for advanced learners who want to improve their language capabilities in certain fields. Furthermore, if you are looking for an all in one Cantonese learning book that guides you through the various steps of learning Cantonese, this book is most likely also not what you are looking for. This book contains vocabularies only and we expect buyers to learn things like grammar and pronunciation either from other sources or through language courses. The strength of this book is its focus on quick acquisition of core vocabularies which comes at the expense of information many people might expect in a conventional language learning book. Please be aware of this when making the purchase. How to use this Cantonese workbook: This book is ideally used on a daily basis, reviewing a set number of pages in each session. The book is split into sections of 50 vocabularies which allows you to step by step progress through the book. Let’s for example say you are currently reviewing vocabularies 101 to 200. Once you know vocabularies 101 to 150 very well, you can start learning vocabularies 201 to 250 and on the next day skip 101-150 and continue reviewing vocabularies 151 to 250. This way, step by step, you will work your way through the book and your language skills will jump with each page you master. Some final thoughts: Like many language hacking methods, this book is quite unconventional in its approach, but for a driven person that uses it correctly it can significantly speed up the learning process. Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work quite well – and that is what counts in the end.

Pearson Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 GCSE (9 - 1) in Chinese (spoken Mandarin/spoken Cantonese) (1CN0) First teaching from September 2017, First certification from June 2019, consists of four externally examined papers based on the following skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students must complete their speaking assessment in April/May and all other assessments in May/June in any single year. Theme-based learning is a way of teaching and learning, whereby many areas of the curriculum are connected together and integrated within a theme. For Chinese International exams, like IGCSE, IB, are evolving into Theme-based curriculum. Students develop the ability to communicate in the target language through the study of language, themes and texts. By referring Edexcel IGCSE Chinese 1CN0F Syllabus and HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test) Version 2021 New Standards for International Chinese Language Education, we added more vocabulary and give the HSK classification, both Version 2009 and the latest Version 2021. Within each topic, the vocabulary are arranged by HSK V2021 levels. This will give teachers a guidance for difficulty level and allow students to set priority on the vocabulary they should know to read, write or both. It will also help a lot for student to do revision. Some students call them as “LIFESAVING" book before their examinations.
