Our Cantonese trainers specialise in teaching Cantonese to business learners. Over the past year, we have provided beginner, intermediate and advanced level Cantonese courses for clients working in the law, financial services and the media.

Developing key business skills in Cantonese

Our approach to teaching Cantonese is highly practical. Training focuses on practising skills such as presenting information, taking part in meetings and speaking on the telephone. Course participants will develop their reading and listening comprehension as well as writing skills for emails and reports. Advanced level courses will focus on negotiating and handling different dialects in Cantonese.

Our Cantonese trainers

Our teachers are all native speakers of Cantonese.  They are university graduates with excellent English. Many have backgrounds in law, finance, marketing or accountancy in addition to their teaching qualifications. Although Cantonese is a hard language to learn, our trainers are experienced in making it accessible to all types of learner.

Cantonese cultural awareness

Cantonese is one of China’s major business languages. Standard Cantonese, also known as the Guandong dialect, is the official language of Hong Kong alongside English. It is the language of choice for education, business, government, and the media. Cantonese is also spoken by some 70 million people in mainland China – in the province of Guandong and the city of Guangzhou (Canton).

Every course incorporates a thorough review of the business, professional and social practices of these Cantonese-speaking regions.
