Cantonese is a member of the Sino-Tibetan linguistic family, and is one of the top twenty most spoken languages in the world. Cantonese is spoken by about 66 million people mainly in the south east of China, particularly in Hong Kong, Macau, Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan. It is the second most influential Chinese dialect after Mandarin and is also spoken in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines and among Overseas Chinese communities in many other countries.

Cantonese has appeared in writing since the 19th century. It is used mainly in personal correspondence, diaries, comics, poetry, advertising, popular newspapers, magazines and to some extent in literature. There are two standard ways of written Cantonese: a formal version and a colloquial version. The formal version is quite different from spoken Cantonese but very similar to Standard Chinese and can be understood by Mandarin speakers without too much difficulty. The colloquial version is much closer to spoken Cantonese and largely unintelligible to Mandarin speakers.

Despite the fact that it has fewer speakers, the geographical spread of Cantonese has historically been much greater and largely remains so to this day. Cantonese is lively, colourful, fun to speak and a highly enjoyable language to learn.
