Before we start
The tutorial will show you the Chinese characters of traditional Chinese which are used in Cantonese speaking countries and Taiwan. The Cantonese pinyin contains alphabets and the following number. The alphabets represent the ‘initial’ and ‘final’, while the number represents the tones. These alphabets and numbers are only to help you to pronounce the words. They do not help you to understand the meanings. The Chinese characters behind the Cantonese pinyin are the words you would see in any written form of traditional Chinese.
