Efficient-Learning through Creative & Fun Practices!

Traditional language classes spend many sessions building vocabulary by repeating each word after the tutor multiple 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 many 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 will be engaged in many games right at the start of the workshop. 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. By the end of your workshop, you will walk away with an improved standard of Singapore Cantonese.

Class was well-conducted, very engaging! The facilitator is very knowledgable in his field. Pace and duration of the classes, as well as the breaks, were well-timed!
Aaron
Cantonese Course for Beginners
Interactive group and activities. Love the point system as well as the stories. Also, I learnt how Cantonese differs between Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Kar Yee
Cantonese Course for Beginners
Basic conversational sentences were taught well. Thus it puts me in a great position to converse casually with the people of Hong Kong.
Wei Yang

The facilitator is very patient & helpful in answering my questions. Super love the materials, especially the cheatsheet! It helps to make the Cantonese sentences sound more authentic!

FAQs

Co-founders, Ski & Eugene, address your questions directly

Ski: Definitely. 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.

Eugene: 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.

Ski: Unfortunately, you can’t. At the moment, we accept payment via PayNow or FAST bank transfer.

Withdrawal and Cancellation Policy

In the event that you want to withdraw from the 2 x 4-hour workshop, please inform us via email. In addition, do note the following:

Withdrawal made by Participant

  • Withdrawal made more than 7 days (i.e., more than 168 hours), prior to the 1st session of the workshop: Full refund of fees paid via the following payment methods – PayNow, Bank Transfer (including ATM) – will be provided.
  • Withdrawal made less than 7 days (i.e., less than 168 hours), prior to the 1st session of the workshop: No refund will be provided.
  • Withdrawal made after the 1st session of the workshop has started and beyond: No refund will be provided.

Please note that no refund will be made if you choose not to attend/complete either or both sessions of the workshop.

Replacement of Missed Lesson

There will be no make-up workshop for missed lessons due to personal, medical, or other reasons.

Cancellation made by LearnDialect.sg

LearnDialect.sg reserves the right to change or cancel the course due to unforeseen circumstances. In the event of any cancellation made by LearnDialect.sg – for whatever reason – a full refund will be provided.

Ski: Yes, an electronic certificate will be emailed to you, upon completion of both sessions.

Ski: Personally, we find that 8 x 1-hour classes are not an efficient use of time. Think about the time you take to travel to and fro. You’ll have to multiply that by 8. What about that usual 5-10 minutes that the facilitators take to wait for latecomers? Multiply that by 8 too. That’s the amount of time that you have committed without learning anything yet.

Eugene: So for us, we prefer highly-focused workshops. Since there is a need to travel anyway, we want you to get the most value out of each session. Plus, it’s easier to deal with an overall commitment of 2 weeks, rather than 8 weeks. Don’t you agree?

Ski: I hear you! In fact, during my schooling days, I had trouble paying attention even for a 1-hour lecture. So your concern is totally valid. This is precisely the reason why we include many activities in our workshops. Time flies by in a flash when you are being engaged and having fun! There are breaks too, with light refreshments (tea, coffee, biscuits) provided. If it helps to assure you, these are some of the feedback by our participants.

Eugene: Yes, we do not like regurgitation or one-way delivery. So fret not, you’ll not be sitting straight for 4 hours and listening to boring lectures. The facilitators love an interactive class too!

Ski: Hey, high five! I’m a slow learner too. My personal experience is that it doesn’t matter how fast or slow you learn. The more important factor is, how much time and effort are you putting in to practise? So if I may, here’s a piece of advice: Don’t shy away from our activities during the workshops. The more you practise, the more we can help to correct your pronunciation.

Eugene: We’ve put in lots of effort in designing the workshops to teach you the tactics of learning dialect(s) quickly. However, if you refuse to speak up during class, your learning is likely to be rather limited. It’s akin to playing tennis. You can read up on all the theories and buy every available book. However, if you don’t go to the court and play it, you’ll never learn it well. So for learning dialects, it’s the same. You’ve got to put in the effort and be courageous enough to keep speaking it. We’ll also be here to support you even after the workshop ends!
