Who are the teachers?
Some people call us Cantonese crusaders, but we are only a team of people who love Cantonese and Chinese using our passion and our skills to pass on the richness of this language and its culture to like-minded people.
In view of the lack of Cantonese learning resources, we are dedicated to creating our own class plans and teaching materials, based on our experience in teaching Cantonese since 2006,
to adapt to the needs of foreign born Chinese learners .
We are polyglots, learning languages is our part time job, so we completely understand what it is about. Check out our bio to know more.
