Books for learning Hong Kong Cantonese

My son has always been interested in learning Cantonese, so our last trip to Hong Kong we did the rounds of bookshops, trying to find a book on the subject. We ended up buying a copy of “Illustrated Hong Kong Cantonese” by Stream of Wisdom Publishing.

The book focuses on vocabulary for everyday life, with 2000 Cantonese words spread across 344 illustrated pages, with each translated into five languages – Cantonese, Mandarin, English, Tagalog, and Bahasa Indonesia.

The reason for the inclusion of Tagalog and Bahasa Indonesia – Hong Kong is full of domestic helpers from the Philippines and Indonesia.


Stream of Wisdom Publishing has also many other books for Cantonese learners, including one for Japanese and Korean speakers.
