    Is it still available to learn Cantonese? Is it too late for response? I am eager to learn Cantonese,I speak mandarin. Is any possible to squeeze to class? I am looking for your response. Thank you!

    I came across this blog posting on a cursory google search for cantonese classes in NYC. the links you’ve provided are dead links now, and I’m wondering if your friend is still teaching these classes or if you know of someone else who is? thanks so much!

    I’ve recently completed the Pimsluer CD language class on Cantonese. Its 30 1/2 hour lessons and I’ve learned it all thoroughly. Now I want to learn more and continue on learning this most interesting of languages. I’m not sure what level I would start at but would probably best be suited for beginner level as the entire Pimsluer course only really teaches me about 100 words but in many different situations.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
