Sheik Cantonese

The most popular resource would be the unique Cantonese dictionary CantoDict. a collaborative project with volunteers around the word adding and editing entries.

This website is a labour of love, created by Adam Sheik in 2003 when he first typed out and published his Cantonese class notes. The site has a very quaint design, probably not deviating much from when it was first created over 15 years ago. But it does provide a good resources, especially the CantoDict. which may account for most of the 8000+ visitors a day.

I found the Cantonese dictionary CantoDict most useful, and some of the essays informative about learning about Cantonese.
