Chinese Characters (Numbers 數字)

When learning a new language, we probably learn the numbers first, for we can actually use the numbers when we go shopping.  For Cantonese, we have another important reason to learn numbers first.  If we can speak the right tones of the numbers (3-9-4-0-5-2-7-8-6), we are probably able to master the “tone” system of Cantonese.
