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.

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!

Ying is an excellent tutor. My 15 year old daughter who has been studying Mandarin since 4 years old needed help with formal essay writing and Ying went above and beyond to help guide her. Ying reviewed her essay before class and highlighted all the sentences that they would discuss during class. Ying gave advice on sentence structure, different ways to phrase something, punctuation and a whole lot more. She was very patient and clear with her explanations. Our daughter thought she was amazing. Also, she was very responsive and clear in her communication before the first class. I highly recommend Ying.

Cantonese is a language used in SE China (e.g. Guangdong Province, Hong Kong). While Mandarin has four intonations, Cantonese has "nine sounds six tones" 九聲六調, making it a pretty vocally expressive language that is super fun to learn. As a Cantonese lover, my lessons will start with basic vocabulary and phonetics in different themes: greeting, number, family, hobbies, etc. We'll then proceed to the unique expressions in Cantonese and its differences from Mandarin. I hope to not just teach the students Cantonese but also spark their interest to enjoy the language that I love and grew up with.
