Teaching Style

Zoey used to teach one to one class and just teach Cantonese. The lesson focus on speaking and listening rather than writing Chinese character. Which make the language easier to learn. She usually persuade students to talk with her in Cantonese. Which will give you more chance on practicing the language.

Usually, the lesson will be divided into few parts. First, vocabularies revision, which is so important in learning Cantonese. Second, will be reading designed conversation from daily life. Thirdly, practicing speaking with tutor and finish the class exercise.

In order to ensure the quality of teaching. The teaching material will be adjust with regard to the student’s level. Tailor made lesson materials will be prepare for your own learning needs. We can discuss about the teaching content and method together.
