    This is just a guess but you might be able to swipe left or right on the space bar. On some phones it allows you to change the language that way. Otherwise you'll have to dig through your settings and find the one for keyboard

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    No longer. I broke up with her like a year and a half ago, plus she didn't speak Chinese.

    Insensitive post. Especially when you are Asian too.

    That keyboard is for Taiwanese Mandarin. Anyone who strictly speaks Cantonese would have no clue how to type with it.

    The keyboard posted is for ZhuYin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bopomofo
    In Taiwan they strictly use Traditional Chinese, and generally speak Mandarin and a few native dialects. The ZhuYin/BPMF system is a phonetic system.
    (same as pictured above)

    A Cantonese speaker (from HK) would generally use a CangJie/SuCheng Keyboard. The words are built based on lookalike parts of the words broken systematically.

    Most China Mandarin speakers type with simplified Chinese, using a US Alphabet keyboard as that's what PinYin is based off of. Also phonetic.

    If you wrote the word "apple" with the canjie keyboard would a cantonese person realize that what you typed was apple? I thought that cantonese people used the traditonal layout. I also thought that their words weren't just english letters translated to chinese characters.
