In this 18th lesson we will explore the Cantonese adverbs, vocabulary list about animals and finally farewell phrases. We will be using both vocabulary and grammar to ensure that you know how to use the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Cantonese Classes.
In addition to adjectives, adverbs are very essential. This includes adverbs of time ", frequency, manner and place. It can make it easy to have a conversation about different topics by simply knowing some key words such as "yesterday", "always", "quickly", "here" etc. Adverbs can modify adjectives and verbs.
Below is a list of 30 adverbs that you might come across or use very often. The table contains 3 columns (English, Cantonese, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
