IWTYAL 280: Interview with Olly from the Reaching for Words podcast

In this episode, you're going to hear an interview I did on another podcast, the newly-released Reaching for Words show.

The reason I wanted to share this episode on this show was that I thought the interview was uncommonly good, and host Rob asked me a lot of good questions that allowed us to discuss a lot of common topics from a beginner perspective.

In Today's Episode:

Rob talks with Olly Richards about the role of memorisation in language learning:

I know this comment is 2 months old but I wanted to answer your question. I assume the reason we don’t do it in Hong Kong is because Cantonese written (Standard Chinese) and spoken language don’t correspond a lot of the time. It wouldn’t be that helpful. Even basic high frequency words like “they” are completely different when written and when spoken. How much use would transcribing 他們 to taa1 mun4 be to learning to speak Cantonese? Almost none, considering we say 佢哋 keoi5 dei6; and that’s just 1 singular example.
