Nota da editorial:

Basic Cantonese introduces the essentials of Cantonese grammar in a straightforward and systematic way.

Each of the 28 units deals with a grammatical topic and provides associated exercises, designed to put grammar into a communicative context. Special attention is paid to topics which differ from English and European language structures.

This new edition features:

• clear, accessible format
• lively examples to illustrate each grammar point
• informative keys to all exercises
• glossary of grammatical terms

Basic Cantonese is ideal for students new to the language. Together with its sister volume, Intermediate Cantonese, it forms a structured course of the essentials of Cantonese grammar.
