My Chinese has deteriorated quite a bit over the years. Trying to ressucitate it. I speak a few other languages with varying degrees of fluency.

Yay, lucky number!

comment Is there an equivalent for the Cantonese phrase “Ng Goi”
I don't think this is an appropriate answer. The OP is asking for a Mandarin equivalent, not an equivalent in another language.

comment How to describe differences between Cantonese and Mandarin?
Really? Korean words are constructed from syllables and have no tones. I don't think it looks sounds anything like Cantonese.

comment How to describe differences between Cantonese and Mandarin?
I don't think the writing system analogy is a good one. I don't understand French even though I am a native Portuguese speaker, but someone who speaks Cantonese can understand Standard written Chinese.

comment Techniques for improving pronunciation
"or remembering the difference between zuo and zuo" Could you add the Chinese characters to clarify? (I am guessing 作 and 做, but I don't know)
