Sagebooks Basic 500 Characters （基礎漢字500） come with pinyin, which might be very helpful for those whose kids are learning Mandarin. But what if you are teaching kids Cantonese? Native speakers in Hong Kong will tell you they do not need any romanisation for Cantonese, but use pinyin for learning or teaching Mandarin.
However, if you are an ABC like me, you might be more fluent in Colloquial Cantonese than in reading word for word. If so, I have created these wordlists for you – they have Jyutping, and are meant to be a handy reference. Some characters also have a few different pronunciation, and I have listed the various pronunciations.

Here’s the free printable for download . There is a two-page PDF per Sagebook set. Each set consists of 5 books (100 characters)
Happy teaching with Sagebooks!
