Show Notes

WE ARE BACK! SEASON 3! Thank you to the old listeners for coming back and welcome to all the new listeners. Hope you will like what we have in store for season 3! I promise you, it's going to be an awesome one.

To kickstart season 3, the first five episodes will be about heritage language and diaspora Asians' relationship with their respective heritage language. The guests will be sharing their experience with their heritage language, what they are doing with their heritage language, and why their heritage language is important to them. If you are interested in this kind of topic, you will for sure enjoy these episodes. If you are not, still give it a listen or share it with those that you know will enjoy this.

For this episode, we have Raymond Pai, lecturer of Cantonese at the University of British Columbia joining us for a conversation about his background, his relationship with his heritage language, Cantonese, his Chinese/Cantonese teaching career, his thoughts on Cantonese and the Cantonese program that he is a part of at UBC.
