FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are your teachers native Cantonese speakers?
Absolutely, all our Cantonese teachers grew up speaking Cantonese.
Can I also learn other Chinese dialects?
You can indeed, we also offer Shanghainese Online Courses, and in future we’ll be starting up a number of others too!
Can I purchase a package less than 25 hours?
No, and the reason for this is to make genuine progress, and for us to make a proper study plan, is that you need a set amount of time that allows you to improve.
Too short, for example 10 hours, and you’ll not reach your potential. For less than 25 hours of instruction it is simply not worth the preparation time.
