Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. This is especially true for Cantonese Chinese. I'll first practice the basic sounds and tones. Then we'll learn practical travel Cantonese--practicing simple conversations. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

About Joy

I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

Learn the basics of speaking and understanding the funny-sounding language known as Cantonese! Many outsiders deem Cantonese as an aggressive and loud language. This is true to an extent, but, there is much fun, beauty, and history to this language as well!

About Austin

Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple yet profound

way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin

I have been speaking Cantonese fluently ever since I was born, and I also speak English fluently. I graduated with a double major in Entrepreneurship and Real Estate so I have a business background as well if that is why you are wanting to lean Cantonese. All ages welcome, I specialize in teaching beginners but I can move on to more advanced lessons once you have a general basis. Lessons are customized and catered to the goals/needs of each student. I will teach you a strong foundation to be able to speak and listen to anyone in Cantonese whether for relationships or business. Look forward to teaching you!
