Hi I'm also teochew but I say a few of these differently. For teacher I would say "xing se" and school as "hat hao" is it just me or dose anyone also say it that way? love this blog btw:3

I think xing se (or sing se) means Mr (先生), so I think it would work too :)

Hat hao could be pronunciation differences between regions I am guessing so that is fine too. I one time listened to the Teochew news from China mainland and found the pronounce things a lot different from how my family does.
