The Lento Series

Many language learners eagerly wait for the day to come, when they can understand real-life conversations in their target languages. But the conversations usually go so fast that they cannot understand even a single sentence. Meanwhile, they are stuck with listening to boring, artificial, fake situational dialogues made up just for them at their speed.

It does not have to be that miserable!

In this series, I am going to extract some real-life Cantonese contents. I will provide 2 versions in audio format: one at normal speed, and one at half the speed (with preserved pitch so it won't sound like a broken record). I will also provide the transcript, Jyutping, translation, and possibly transliteration as well.

This series is designed for novice to work on their listening skills. At the same time, intermediate learners can practice speaking over the audio.

I'm looking forward to the Lento series. Some of the other posts are a little too fast for me.
