Cantonese Beginners & Intermediate Half-day Course (7/2/2022 – present)
I’ve been learning here for a few months and I’m enjoying it fully. The teachers here are patient and engaging. While each lesson does have a theme/ particular set of vocab it covers, they frequently branch out to make the lesson more applicable to daily life. They explain the origin of the word as well as related words and other uses in phrases too which makes it much more interesting than just running through a list of words and has given me a better understanding of how the Cantonese language works.
They provide a text book that has vocabulary, practice scenarios and conversations. As well as audio files to accompany the text that are especially useful when practicing and attempting to learn pronunciation and tones. While not all the content may be relevant, it is a good base to build upon and consult while studying.
The earlier comment regarding frequent messages from the class coordinator confused me, as I find her messages helpful reminders and appreciate her willingness to accommodate my schedule when figuring out class times. The flexibility to change times and take a break between sessions is another thing I like about this language center, and I am excited about the progress I’ve made with the language thus far.

Cantonese Beginners Evening Course (7/6/2022 – 7/7/2022)
I recently moved to Hong Kong and joined HKLS on a friend’s recommendation, to learn Cantonese. When i was signing up for the course, I had little hope of ever being able to pick up Cantonese because I had heard that it is a very difficult language. But HKLS proves that wrong!! The course materials, teachers and structure of the course at HKLS was excellent! Not only did I start picking up Cantonese, I had a lot of fun along the way. The classes were fun, so were the interactions with the teacher and the classmates. The school even has a cute little spot for coffee and snacks, where people from all classes come out to chill during breaks! The people at HKLS are polite and responsive (they even sent me a reminder in the mornings on days when I had a class). In short, my experience at HKLS was phenomenal and I am so grateful to them for giving me such a fun-filled learning experience! Highly recommended!!

I’m learning Cantonese at the HKLS and I’m very happy with the language school. They’re very flexible and always try to arrange class times around my work schedule. My teacher works with me at my pace but also challenges me to keep me pushing forward. In 9 months of lessons I’ve made significant progress from zero Cantonese knowledge. Highly recommend.
