Survival Cantonese (4/2 – 6/2, 2013)

1, Why did you choose Hong Kong Language School?

-- I took a crash course in Cantonese (Survival Cantonese) but I was already familiar with HKLS because my daughters had taken a Mandarin class at the school one summer. In both cases, the school was able to offer customized language classes with a professional language teacher on very short notice.

2, How's the school environment?

-- The school is in a full-service business district easily accessible by the subway.

3, How's the class atmosphere?

-- The classroom and office space are clean and brightly lit. My classes began promptly and there were periodic short rest breaks.

4, How's your teacher? Was your class effective? Did you learn what you had expected?

-- My teacher was superb and was sensitive to my ability to absorb the material and paced the class accordingly. I was interested in learning some introductory Cantonese, and this course was perfect for me. My class focused on everyday dialogue and useful expressions and we used the school's in-house developed handbook and cd that I still refer to when I self-study at home.

Of course learning, especially language learning, requires a good measure of individual effort and study time outside of the classroom. I needed a teacher to provide leadership and to help me navigate the course but in fact a fair amount of progress in my case depended on doing my homework and preparing for class every day.

5, Will you come back & take more lessons? Why?

-- Yes, I will take more classes in Cantonese - it's hard to stop once you start.

6, Will you recommend Hong Kong Language School to your friends? Why?

-- I would advise anyone learning a language to look for a school that is easily accessible and has well-qualified instructors who understand your goals and can help you design a realistic language program. In both cases, HKLS met those criteria and I had a successful learning experience.
