  • Description

    I am a student currently completing my final year of highschool. I am a beginner to the Chinese dialect of Cantonese. My only prior knowledge of the Cantonese dialect consists of a few basic phrases I have learned through the use of audio lessons.

    My reasons for learning Cantonese range from social to buisness. My first reason is that many of my close friends are of Chinese origin and most come from Cantonese speaking backrounds. As a result many of my friend's first generation family members find it difficult to communicate with me and become alienated due to this fact.

    I feel it is important to be able to communicate clearly with these individuals to builed a stronger realtionship with my friends and also to familerize myself with some of their customs.

    M y second reason is buisness. Toronto is home to many Cantonese speaking citizens, a firm understanding of the language would be a great advantage in the working world especially when adressing Chinese speaking customers who may have only a basic understanding of the english language.

    I am willing to dedicate anywhere from one to three days a week to these lessons (possibly more if required).
    I am looking for a teacher who will give me the time I need to adopt a good understanding of the language, and will help me with my various difficulties, whatever they may be.
