Our Total Beginner Cantonese classes are designed for students with little to no background in Cantonese, and our engaging, professional teachers will guide you every step of the way.
Over the course of 5 to 8 weeks, you can expect to learn basic Cantonese conversation skills, grammar, and vocabulary, as well as get an introduction to the writing system. Using a textbook oriented toward the spoken language, students learn to speak Cantonese while engaging in lively conversations and role play.
Materials are not included in the cost of the class and are generally available for $10. The textbook for this course, A Cantonese Book (3rd Edition), may be purchased online here or at the retailer of your choice.
