Cantonese to be more specific.Is it hard? What's the grammar like? What's your opinion on it? Do you think it looks cool...? etc

Cantonese is easy to use, difficult to learn. It has simple grammar compare with English. For examples:

I eat today. I EAT yesterday. (We only use simple past tense like EAT+ED to accentuate we ALREADY did that action.)

I go to school. She GO to school.

One goose is flying. Ten GOOSE IS flying. etc.

Oh. I'm sorry but I thought that was really cute, I don't have the heart to tell you (specifically) what you said was wrong.

Ngóh sihk góng Gwóngdùngwá (síu síu!) Well, that's a huge, probably ungrammatical exaggeration, but I started learning it a few months back. I think it’s cool, not especially difficult to learn if you’re not afraid of tones (there are at least six of them, seven if you’re old-school), and very useful where I live. I especially like the fact that it's less commonly studied, so people invariably crack up when a gwailo like me tries to speak to them.

I know I am just a worthless faggot, but if you will use me
this way, then maybe I can have some small value in this world.

Yeah, I'm an Australian born Chinese, so I have a slight aussie accent when I speak Cantonese. Shits me because I can't hear it myself to change the tones so that I sound like a local, but apparently the accent's kind of attractive.
