I have received a full clear information and advice on classes, materials and methods.

2, How’s the school environment?

However, after a week I have discovered that the class was really effective because I could actually communicate well in Mandarin. After a month of class, not only I wasn’t afraid to speak anymore but also I have gained an adequate amount of Chinese vocabulary and fixed phrases. I had highly qualified teacher. The teaching methods and tips the teacher gave us were really useful and made studying a foreign language easier and pleasant.

The class environment was extremely fun

Mariyah Hoosenally from Singapore

Cantonese Beginners Level 1 Day Time class (8/8 – 19/8, 2011)

Neih hou! The two weeks I spent in the Hong Kong Language School were weeks I would never forget. I chose the Hong Kong Language School amongst the few others in Hong Kong because it stood out to me. The class timings were reasonable, the location was perfect and the course outline was just right. I felt that the school was just right for me the moment I walked in and was welcomed by the friendly staff. I was introduced to my fellow classmates and teachers shortly after and knew that this was right for me.

The class environment was extremely fun! I am now confident walking down the streets of Hong Kong. I would to take more classes to expand my Cantonese and talk to the locals. I recommend the HK Language School to anyone who wants to learn the languages of Hong Kong!
