Planning to spend the next few years walking around Hong Kong buck naked? Both we and the local police are guessing not, which means that at some point you'll have to head out and purchase clothing from a local shop in Hong Kong. And while the good news is that Hong Kong is considered a mecca for exactly this activity, the bad news is that if you don't speak Cantonese you're at a bit of a disadvantage when it comes to finding the best that the city has to offer. We can help you fix this.

Learning Cantonese? In this Elementary Cantonese podcast, join us as we cover some more elementary vocabulary you'll use when shopping for clothing and trying things on. You already know how to say that something is too big or too small, but how about tight or loose, or modern and old-fashioned? If you're less clear about these, take a listen to today's show and in about ten minutes we'll give you all the Cantonese you'll ever need to get what you want the next time you're out on the town.
