關於我哋 About Us

冚唪唥粵文係由兩位創辦人:香港語言學家劉擇明博士同中大CLC學習中心嘅廣東話初學者Viveik Saigal,喺一次偶然嘅會面之後成立嘅。

HBL was founded after a chance meeting between the Founders Dr. Chaak Ming Lau, a Hong Kong linguist and Viveik Saigal, a beginner student of Cantonese at CUHK CLC learning center.

喺討論入面,大家確認咗以下需求:
During discussions, the need was identified for ;

1)改良版嘅耶魯同粵拼羅馬化字體,提供更多提示幫助更準確嘅粵語發音。
2)針對成人同埋兒童初學者水平同認知而寫嘅印刷同數碼版附有粵拼嘅粵語故事書。
3)粵語分級詞表,用嚟有系統噉學習粵語同埋設計教材。
4)非華語學習者嘅自學、輔助學習單元,令佢哋可以喺廣東話朋友圈子嘅幫助下學習粵語同進行評估。

1) A better font for Yale and Jyutping Romanisation that would offer more cues for more accurate Cantonese Pronunciation.
2) Storybooks in Cantonese and Jyutping in Print and Digital for the Beginner Adult and Child student wrote to their level and sensibilities.
3) A graded scale for Cantonese to systematically study the language and plan teaching materials.
4) Self-study/Assisted modules for the non-Chinese learner that can be conducted and assessed with the help of laymen Cantonese speakers in their circles of acquaintances and friends.

呢啲資源可以幫到有以下需要嘅粵語學習者:
These resources would help language learners ;

  1. 喺香港居住同工作嘅人
  2. 想改善佢哋嘅廣東話嘅人
  3. 享受粵語文化嘅人

而家做緊咩?What is going on now ?

要達到呢啲目標,創辦人同一班義工創建緊一個軟件同埋材料嘅開放資源庫。呢啲資源主力係幫助兒童同埋成人學習者建立返由幼稚園到小學三年級嘅所需粵語程度。

With these goals in mind, the founders and volunteers are creating an open-source depository of enabling software and materials. These resources are focused to develop Cantonese fluency in the Kindergarten to Primary 3 prescribed levels of the child and adult learner.
