. An important part of learning to reading in Penang Hokkien is to enjoy reading material that is written in the language. At Penang Travel Tips, I am creating reading material to help you get familiar with the writing system, while at the same time discover and enjoy Penang. Reading material ranges from basic to advanced, with more being added regularly.
The Guided Reading articles are for people who already speak Penang Hokkien but can use some help in getting familiar with the Taiji Romanisation. These articles include audio rendition of each sentence, so a person who understands spoken Penang Hokkien can read as well as listen to each sentence.
