Apologizing in Cantonese

“Excuse me” works the same compared to English. When you need to get through a crowd or to get attention from somebody, you can say “excuse me” 唔好意思 m4 hou2 ji3 si1.

“Excuse me”

唔好意思 m4 hou2 ji3 si1

唔好意思 m4 hou2 ji3 si1 - Excuse me

For something that is a bit more serious, you should say 對唔住 deoi3 m4 zyu6

“Sorry”

對唔住 deoi3 m4 zyu6

對唔住 deoi3 m4 zyu6 - Sorry

Worst case scenario, you should add 好 deoi3, which means “very”, which is 好對唔住 hou2 deoi3 m4 zyu6

“Very sorry”

好對唔住 hou2 deoi3 m4 zyu6 - Very sorry
