⚠️ Safe Distancing and Safe Management Measures

Your safety is our top concern, which is why we are operating at less than 50% of the training room’s capacity and enforcing strict safe distancing measures. We will also have safe management measures in place, including cleaning and disinfecting our training room and high-touch surfaces, contact tracing, and temperature screening. There will also be checks on visible symptoms (coughing, sneezing, breathlessness, or running nose) before entering the classroom. We seek your kind understanding and cooperation that any participant who appears unwell will be asked to leave the workshop. All participants are also required to wear masks at all times during the workshops.

What Makes Our Cantonese Course Different?

Vocabulary-Building, the Singaporean Way

A big part of your beginner’s course is to build up your Singapore Cantonese vocabulary. Besides learning about the basic traits of Singapore Cantonese, you will be given comprehensive notes which cover many topics. In addition, your tutor makes extensive effort to listen and correct your pronunciation. In this way, you will have an easier time learning Cantonese.

Efficient-Learning through Creative & Fun Practices!

Traditional language classes spend many sessions building vocabulary by repeating each word after the tutor for x times. For us, we believe that if learning is not fun, you will lose the motivation to learn. Hence, it would not be effective even if you sit through multiple lessons. In fact, this has been proven many times by influential researchers, e.g. Dulay & Burt, 1997; Krashen, 1982.

This is why during your 2 x 4-hour Cantonese Course, you’ll be engaged in many games right at the start of the course. We don’t want to give your surprises away, but let’s just say, with so many activities, you can be assured that time flies by in a flash. In addition, you will walk away with an improved standard of Singapore Cantonese.
