Cantonese Bubble Bath

Play . . . and learn.

Think Chinese is too hard?  Child’s play!

Our favorite mobile game.  Learn Cantonese and play a game at the same time.

Learn Cantonese with a fun and engaging game. Whether you are travelling to Hong Kong or China Town — or you just want to watch some Kung Fu movies — it would be great to learn a little bit of Cantonese.

Mandarin gets all the attention but Cantonese is important too. So many times I’ve been in a Chinese restaurant and try out my Mandarin skills only to find that everyone speaks Cantonese!

Cantonese Bubble Bath is a simple game where you are presented with 12 language categories of 10 words each. Each category has 10 levels with increasing difficulty.

The first level of each category is easy. You have a 50/50 chance of guessing the right word and popping the bubble by selecting the translation for it. As the levels increase, the number of possible translations increase. You can no longer rely on guessing.

Just when you think you are getting used to it, the game will force you to use your listening skills by showing bubbles without text (so you have to listen). Then, you will see bubbles with text and no sound.

Cantonese Bubble Bath has vocabulary in the following categories:
✓ Numbers
✓ Animals
✓ Body Parts
✓ Colors
✓ Sizes
✓ Verbs
✓ Travel
✓ Time
✓ Person Nouns
✓ Adjectives
✓ Food
✓ Useful Phrases

Are you ready to throw down . . . Cantonese style?

Just some of our reviews

I like this and find it useful.
I like this game / learning tool. I like that it insists you learn the sound of each word as well as its appearance. As this is my introduction to Cantonese, I find it helpful to become used to the sound, and the at first subtle differences in pronounciation between words. This is a vocabulary game, so it does not explain grammar or how to write. It teaches a good selection of basic words. I have found a couple of glitches; sometimes it skips levels instead of going to the next level (after I have replayed a level, it seems) and it has crashed, but it did not affect anything else and I reopened it just fine. You can select your level, and check you have not missed any in ‘stats’, so these glitches do not put me off at all. I find it fun and I intend to keep playing to learn all the words. Thank you for making it.

Fun way to learn words.

Simple and fun

Really helps you remember words and even the characters, but it doesn’t give you a chance to try to memorize the words before you start playing the game. Not a deal breaker, just harder to get started using only trial and error to learn at first.

Some of the animals are simplified characters, instead of traditional

Fun to learn with

Great but please fix the below issue
This app is great. I just started and already feel like I’m learning and remembering new words. On the body part section, there is no way to differentiate foot from leg as, in the Cantonese, the two are sharing the same character and audio 🙁

Seems fun
Seems like a fun way to learn. Will let u know if I learnt Canto thru it

Victor Ng on Google Play (7th December 2014)

Fun for the little ones
Chinese characters scroll up in bubbles, two at a time in the first level. Tap on a bubble and a voice speaks the Cantonese word. Player then taps the English word to match the correct pair before the bubbles disappear.

Player can select levels of difficulties. There are three sets of words, numbers, animals, and body parts. In each set, words are repeated in ascending levels. Player must match two words, then five,and so on.

This would be good for children who’d just started learning the above mentioned set of words. This game also work on their eye-hands coordination.

Would recommend to kindergartners up to second grade levels.

Not five stars because: there are only limited number of words repeated. Not very challenging for learning new words.
