Today we are going to learn how to use “hou5″ which means “very much” in Cantonese.

We can also use “hou5″ to mean “very much” together with “love” or “hate”

How to say: Will You Marry Me in Cantonese (2)

Another verb that means “marry” in Cantonese is 娶。 It really means “(a man) marry (a woman)”.
So for a girl to ask a man “Will you marry me?”, she should say
nei5 jyun6 ji3 ceoi2 ngo5 maa3
你願意娶我嗎?” (colloquial)
nei5 jyun6 m4 jyun6ji3 tung4 ngo5 git3fan1 aa3
你愿唔願意同我結婚啊。”(Are you willing to marry me? )

If you would be happy for a week take a wife; if you would be happy for a month kill a pig; but if you would be happy all your life plant a garden (Proverb)

So how do you say take a wife in Cantonese?
ceoi2 lou5po4
老婆 Marry (one’s) wife

Marry an 18-year-old as his wife:
ceoi2 zo2 go3 sap6baat3 seoi3 ge3 zou6 lou5po4

Learn Cantonese by Listening to Chinese Radio

Internet is such a great place to learn any languages including Cantonese and Mandarin.
It is now so convenient for you to create an emergent learning environment using the Internet radio station.

Cantonese learners in San Francisco Bay Area are lucky to have Singtao Chinese Radio, which is also available online at http://ChineseRadio.com. They have both Cantonese and Mandarin programs.
The Chinese characters for “Singtao Chinese Radio” are 星島中文電臺 (星岛中文电台) sing1 dou2 zung1 man4 din6 toi4 (in Jyutping )

You may listen to live program if you have Windows Media Player installed and use Internet Explorer: (6am to 2pm then 4 to 6pm Mon-Fri PST). In Dublin/Pleasanton/San Ramon (tri Valley) area, it is hard to get the programs on my radio, so it is very convenient to listen to it online.

We will create some lessons out of their recorded Cantonese programs to help you to learn soon.
