Do you want a solid foundation to your Cantonese studies?
If you are looking for a solid foundation to your language studies for school, work or travel, this engaging course will get you speaking, writing, reading and understanding Cantonese in no time. Through authentic conversations, clear language presentations, and extensive practice and review, you will learn the Cantonese you need to communicate naturally in everyday situations - from booking a hotel room to talking about friends and family.

What will I learn?
Basic Cantonese is slowly and carefully introduced to ensure you progress confidently through the course and build up a foundation to allow you to feel confident in everyday situations and move to the next level of your learning. It teaches grammar, vocabulary and listening, reading, writing, speaking and pronunciation skills. By the end of the course you will reach a solid Novice High proficiency level of ACTFL (The American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages) and A2 Beginner level of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) guidelines.

Is this course for me?
