About this course

Learning to speak Cantonese can appear daunting at first. However, here at the Oxford Language Academy, our teachers make learning to speak Cantonese easy. Our Conversational Cantonese classes are specially designed for beginners and for those who intend to brush up their conversational Cantonese language skills. Through the guidance of our learned teachers, your Cantonese learning experience will be smooth and exciting.

Students are not required to learn Chinese characters. The Yale romanization of Cantonese is widely used in our course materials. This, together with the use of English translations, will aid students in their learning of spoken Cantonese. Our syllabus covers simple Cantonese dialogue, basic grammar, vocabulary and expressions. It will also illustrate interpersonal communication etiquette and formalities on how to address others. This class emphasizes the spoken aspect of the Cantonese language, and will not cover the written portion of Cantonese.

Part of learning a language involves embracing its use in its native context and the rich culture behind it. Through the various illustrations of Cantonese culture that is presented in lessons, students get glimpse of the distinct lifestyle and diverse experiences of Cantonese culture. Classes held are immersive and interactive, enabling students to speak Cantonese to one another.

With the use of phonetic exercises, students will learn proper pronunciation of Cantonese, as well as, speaking in the correct accent. Our aim is to develop students’ conversational skills and appreciation for Cantonese. Hence, students will be able to seamlessly converse by delivering simple sentences and honing a vocabulary of at least 400 words.
