About this course
English is used as the medium of instruction.
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. The course 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.
Students will receive a Certificate of Completion upon completion of the course, if they meet the minimum requirements of 70% attendance.
Students requesting direct entry to any course beyond Level 1 must undergo a placement test. Click here to enquire.
