Don′t Miss this Unique Opportunity to Start Speaking
Cantonese and Be Part of Hong Kong
The Cantonese Foundation Course is a modern approach to the learning of Cantonese. The Course will provide an understanding of the structure of Cantonese based on participants′
knowledge of the structure of English.
The Course does not start with the repetition of the tones of Cantonese in isolation from communication. It is a more effective method to start with understanding the basic
grammatical structures of Cantonese; then all you need to do is “slot in” the vocabulary. You pick up the tones as you practise the language in “real-life” situations just as the complexities of intonation, stress, rhythm,
tone and pronunciation are gradually mastered and improved in any language.
The Course is for very busy people in business and their partners who want to learn to speak useful Cantonese within a short period of
time; people who have little or no Cantonese at all and want to speak appropriate, educated, business Cantonese in a variety of different situations, both social and work-related.
It focuses on equipping participants
with the necessary language skills to cope with a series of common situations in their business and social lives such as Making Introductions in Social and Business Situations, Leaving Phone Messages, Asking for and Providing Information, and Arranging
Appointments. It also provides ways to communicate with local people so that they will respond warmly to you and choose the most precise and polite Cantonese for use in effective daily communication: also how to void "faux pas" in Cantonese!
