Rainbow Seeds Cantonese 如何利用冚唪唥故事教廣東話

Rainbow Seeds Cantonese (RSC) 於英國教育雙語家庭小朋友(3至10歲+)將近五年,深深明白到學習廣東話所遇到的困難。必需先學習「聽」和「說」,才能有能力拓展「讀」與「寫」。市面上雖然有學習粵拼或訓練口語的書藉,但內容普遍沉悶及困難,大多為母語小朋友而設,當中的文字更是過於複雜,難以令小朋友輕鬆地學習,使他們對廣東話提不起興趣。有幸接觸到《冚唪唥》,讓我們於教學課程上更多元化,讓小朋友能更全面學習廣東話。

Miss Kini-學習廣東話的好幫手

現時坊間的廣東話教材,局限於為成年學生而設計的生活題材,給口語交際造成了局限和障礙。而少數族裔學童在學校接受的中文教學,只是着重訓練他們記認漢字和書面語的讀寫能力,卻缺乏廣東話口語表達能力的訓練,導致學生學了一段長時間的中文都未能開口說廣東話。有見及此,「冚唪唥粵文」推出一套分級故事書讀本,幫助不同程度的人士循序漸進地學習廣東話,使他們可以在課外時間,透過閱讀廣東話書寫的文字故事累積香港日常生活上慣用的口頭表達方法。

點解要學粵拼?

為何學習廣東話需要拼音系統?廣東話的書寫系統是漢字,語言學上漢字是一種意音文字。這意味著,單單看到一個漢字,並不能直接看出讀音。要系統地描述一個漢字的讀音,一套拼音系統是不可避免的。此外,一些容易混淆的發音,拼音是一套有效的工具令學生分辨出不同語音的不同之處。推廣粵拼方案,除了令以廣東話為母語的香港人,能準確地知道漢字的發音外,也能令初學者在零基礎下,快速掌握這個學習廣東話的工具。

The Importance of Jyutping in Learning Cantonese

The writing system of Cantonese is Chinese characters, the classification of Chinese characters is logogram in Linguistic studies. Which means one cannot directly notice the pronunciation of a Chinese character just by reading it, because Chinese characters did not show every single phoneme. Even if a beginner does not need to learn Chinese characters, a romanization system for Cantonese is still needed. There are about 19 initials, 53 finals, 6 tones in Cantonese. The numbers of these initials, finals and tones are limited, even the combination of them are limited.
