The Cantonese Basic Coarse is a course in spoken Cantonese, with the subject matter of the course dealing with daily life in Hong Kong. Cantonese is the principal language of Kwangtung province in Southeast China, parts of neighboring Kwangsi province, Hong Kong, and Macao; it is also spoken by many people in Southeast Asia, and is the original language of many Chinese-American, with some 50 million people in the world speaking it. It has many dialects, but the Prestige variety, spoken in Canton, is standard, and is used over a wide area, including Hong Kong, and these audio recordings are made in the Prestige dialect. The course is divided into two levels; each book has a handy glossary presenting a romanization, characters, and a brief definition.
