 very good class

 Alex was enthusiastic and fun to learn with. She corrects and gives examples of how to apply the corrections made. She has very good pronunciation and diction and it really adds to the quality of her teaching. Her classes are not merely a Cantonese language lesson but insight and into asian culture and modes of thinking.

About me - English

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.
