In Hong Kong, where over 90% of the population are Cantonese speakers and Cantonese is the lingua franca, a large number of local Chinese lifelong learners encounter problems during their English learning processes. In this speech, Mr Jasper Tsang will discuss the common problems Cantonese-speaking English learners encounter. He will also recommend some practical solutions to these problems.
