 My 10-year-old son had his first beginners Cantonese session with Winnie and she is great! She has visual material prepared and walked him through dialogue and does a great job with explaining and getting him to repeat the material. There is no doubt she is a trained language teacher.

 Winnie does a good job of keeping the conversation going and also of identifying relevant vocab. She provides a written summary of vocab and phrases together with tones which is really useful. However, for my taste she does too much of the talking without coaxing the student to respond more, and her speed/complexity may be too high. She could do more to encourage the student to repeat the vocab already covered and engage in two-way discussion. The sound quality is also not great - she could consider using a headset.

Review from Jolin Chan:

excellent experience with Winnie's skype lessons!

I am a beginner in Cantonese without any previous experience in this language. I took lessons with Winnie over skype on the internet and had a lot of improvement even in a short period of time. I leaned a lot of basic conversation skills and can now speak quite confidently.

Winnie has very systematic, organized, and practical lesson plans. She used many different teaching tools to help me learn to speak quickly. She was also able to tailor her lessons according to my needs and progress. Winnie has been an excellentand highly helpful teacher to me. Being able to learn over the internet via skype has also been convenient and effective!

Review from Jacqueline Olson:

Winnie is a fantastic teacher!

She is very well organized and takes time to plan out each lesson for you so you can gain the proper understanding of the language.

I have no background in Cantonese. Winnie has made my experience with learning this language an amazing journey. She has boosted my confidence alot with the few months I have had her as my teacher. I look forward to each lesson I have with her, which is once a week!

I would highly recommend Winnie as a teacher. To me she is the ideal teacher to have when it comes to learning a new language. She really takes time and interest in you.

She is committed to helping you learn this language and you can really tell she takes pride in the work she does. I really appreciate her patience and kindness towards me in respect to learning Cantonese. She makes me feel extremely comfortable.

Thank you so much Winnie, I look forward to our next lesson!
