Learning Chinese Dialects

Post by Yuyan Xuejia »

I would like to find a person who can help/teach me to speak a Chinese dialect. I am particularly interested in learning dialects which have a wide number of speakers, such as Hakka, Minnan, Shanghai, Chaozhou etc. (I can speak fluent Cantonese and Mandarin already) It would be best if you use the standard form of the dialect (or a recognised form).

If you can help me, please send me an email.

I would be happy to help with your English(I am a fluent speaker), Cantonese or Mandarin in return for your favor.

Sorry if I am barging in with a different question. I am a kid, but I am very interested in learning Mandarin. I have been looking at various CD learning programs. I was wondering if anyone hear had any suggestions on a good program that could help me learn.

Thanks for your offer TangRen! I was looking specifically for mandarin to learn as a language. you may have to excuse my ignorance if ChaoZhou or Thai is a synonym or dialect of mandarin than I may be interested.
