My husband currently speaks cantonese at an elementary school level, and would like to upgrade this knowledge of being able to read a chinese menu at least. He's able to recognize alot of the very basic characters and speak it in cantonese.
I'm seeing that alot of flashcard programs are in mandarin and in simplified form. It's kind of tricky to figure out the best way to go about this since he already speaks cantonese and has a very basic knowledge of traditional characters.
- Should he stick with learning traditional or go simplified?
- Is there a good program to learn this quickly that shows the characters but speaks in in mandarin and cantonese?
- How many characters should one know to read at least a chinese menu at a restaurant?
