Mandarin for Cantonese Speakers

Mandarin for Cantonese Speakers

Courses Info

This course is exclusively for Cantonese speakers, who have basic Mandarin conversational skills, but want to brush up on their pronunciation and advance to a higher level of Mandarin proficiency. Students start by developing a solid foundation of Pinyin and tones and then move onto practising the most commonly-used phrases and sentences (more than 100) used in everyday life. A native-speaking teacher will provide feedback and guidance on correct pronunciation. Small groups and one-on-one training is available.
