Teach Yourself Cantonese is a funny book

I’m up to lesson 18 of Teach Yourself Cantonese. It’s a funny old book, really. I’m 3/4th of my way through it and I still don’t know how to say basic stuff like “toilet”, “part-time job”, “cousin”, “elevator”, “internet” and “computer”. I do, however, know how to say “gamble”, “murder”, “rape” “deadbeat” and “plain-clothes policeman.” I don’t know what kind of life author Hugh Baker led in Hong Kong, but something tells me I shouldn’t mess with him…
