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. 

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 avoid “faux pas” in Cantonese!

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.

The Chamber in Partnership with The Communication Group
has been offering this Course to Chamber Members for the last twelve years

The Course is not available to the general public except for Member companies, some leading conglomerates and professional organisations in Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific Region.

The Management Team of the Communication Group has been involved in Communication Consultancy in Hong Kong for over 25 years and is fully aware of the business communication/language requirements of companies needing to do business in Hong Kong, the PRC and Taiwan. The main clients of the Communication Group are major "blue chip" companies in Hong Kong.
