All of our Cantonese Courses are taught by native speaking Cantonese Teachers from Hong Kong. By listening to our Cantonese teachers enunciate the words, and to imitate them as you learn, it will definitely help you in your articulation of words.

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.

This class emphasizes the spoken aspect of the Cantonese language, and will not cover the written portion of Cantonese.

Corporate Language Training

With globalisation bringing people from various parts of the world together, it is crucial for businesses to adapt and be prepared for new opportunities that may come with this change in environment. Customers coming from different parts of the world may not always understand English, which may result in a language barrier between your business and your potential partners or clients.

Thai corporate language training provides numerous advantages for businesses, especially for businesses who deal with Thai speaking customers or have Thai speaking counterparts. Through our language training, we provide enterprises with the opportunity to improve their communication skills and build a better connection with their Thai speaking customers.
