The course begins imagining that you're an american man speaking with a Cantonese woman. You meet at a hotel. You're taught how to greet her and ask if she speaks English. She says no and asks if you're American. You're taught a humble reply when she compliments you on your Cantonese.
You're then taught how to ask if she'd like to eat something. The two of you decide to go to a restaurant to eat. You ask her if she'd like something to drink - beer or wine? You order two cups of wine.
You then ask if she'd like to go to your place to drink - beer or wine, naturally, since those are the only drinks in your vocabulary.
The course ends.
... this is literally the vocabulary you learn in this course. So if you're an American man looking to pick up Cantonese women, this is the course for you.
