Why should you use Popup Cantonese? First because we're more fun than any other method of learning Cantonese. Most teaching materials are created by native Cantonese-speaking teachers with little experience learning a foreign language, let along mearning the Chinese language! Popup Cantonese has been designed from scratch by native English speakers. We've suffered through the same dry textbooks you have, and built Popup Cantonese to solve the emajor problems we had learning Chinese.

Try out a few podcasts, and you'll be speaking Cantonese before you know it. In addition to being more enjoyable than other methods of cramming through Cantonese, Popup Cantonese is also more efficient than traditional learning systems. As you work through our Cantonese lessons, you'll be able to build up wordlists of materials you've learned, and review them using a variety of online tools. These include features like spaced-repetition flashcards that cut the amount of time you'll need to learn new words.
