Description:
In this lesson, you will learn some Cantonese verbs associated with some common body parts, such as brain, eyes, nose, ear, mouth, hands, and legs. There are examples showing Cantonese phrases that contain these Cantonese verbs. Let me remind you that the same Chinese character is often used differently in Cantonese than in Mandarin. Also, most Cantonese phrases are not understood by Mandarin speakers simply because Mandarin is a language that is totally different from Cantonese, just like English and Spanish.
