I am always fascinated by my mother tongue Cantonese: the vivid metaphors, the lively expressions, the wit in the language! You share the same view with me, and want to have a flavour of it? Great! Yet you are not quite sure where to start, or you encounter some hiccups here and there along the way? No worries, I am here to help!
I obtained Masters of Arts in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language because I want to assist as many people as possible learn Cantonese, simple as that! My teaching style : I want to make it fun and useful, so I will explore various topics and materials, from newspapers to YouTube, from song to drama, as long as I see fit. And I will work in a communicative way. Grammar work is done from time to time.
If you want to learn Cantonese or about Hong Kong and the language with me, feel free to contact to me.
2012- Present Freelance translator and teacher of Cantonese
2014 Master of Arts in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language awarded by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University
2004 Bachelor of Arts in Translation (First Class Honours)
The materials are in form of Google Doc. Audio recordings, YouTube videos and TV programmes in Hong Kong are used as well. For beginners, I shall teach with aid of English. For Intermediate and Advanced learners, the lessons will be conducted in Cantonese and English is used at the minimum level.
Communicative approaches are adopted, but if you would like to drill on some grammar rules, I can also customise the materials for it.
Excellent! Always fun and excited to learn Cantonese with her!
Very friendly, answer all questions in short time, very interesting lessons! :)
Alexandra was a very encouraging teacher. Her lesson incorporated the basic elements of Cantonese in a very easy to follow way. I learned so much in only 45 minutes!
