I managed to get on the RTHK English Channel regarding the pleasures and pains of learning Cantonese. The program name is “Same Same But Different Between English and Cantonese”, and specifically “Learning Cantonese”.
I admit I was super nervous and neither my English nor Cantonese was at its best, and sounded quite broken to my ears for both my native and target language.
I was also quite pressured to instantly think of something to say and subconsciously know that many people would hear my mistakes. I think I speak better when I’m calm and relaxed, as this time my heart was beating super fast like at a job interview.
