    I wish I had mandarin lessons in my school days. When it comes to revising with my daughter her ptw lessons, I'm simply clueless.

    As far as I know the Cantonese people use to live further north. They were pushed south by invaders and brought their language with them.

    I have read that many ancient Chinese poems and texts sound better (some even rhyme) when spoken in Cantonese.
