Cantonese: Learn Cantonese from a native Hong Konger in NYC!

Hello, 你好 nei5 hou2!

I am originally from Hong Kong and have been living in New York City for 20+ years! I can speak, read and write Chinese (Cantonese, Traditional characters). I had taught Cantonese in the past as a side gig, and had also taught ESL and computers for a non-profit for 2 years. 我喺香港出世同長大, 同喺美國紐約市住咗20年啦! 我有教學經驗, 曾經教過廣東話, ESL同埋電腦. ngo5 hai2 hoeng1 gong2 ceot1 sai3 tung4 coeng4 daai6 , tung4 hai2 mei5 gwok3 nau2 joek3 si5 zyu6 zo2 20 nin4 laa1 ! ngo5 jau5 gaau3 hok6 ging1 jim6 , cang4 ging1 gaau3 gwo3 gwong2 dung1 waa6 , ESL tung4 maai4 din6 nou5 .

The Cantonese language is not as difficult as people make it out to be, basic grammar is very much like English (Subject + Verb + Object).

For our lessons, depending on your level, goals and learning preference, we can use books to practice, songs to learn vocabularies and tones or just to chat. I am more than happy to give you writing homeworks as well! 睇吓你情度係咩, 我哋可以用書, 歌, 或者傾計. 仲可以教你寫字比功課你做 :) tai2 haak3 nei5 cing4 dou6 hai6 me1 , ngo5 dei2 ho2 ji5 jung6 syu1 , go1 , waak6 ze2 king1 gai3 . zung6 ho2 ji5 gaau3 nei5 se2 zi6 bei2 gung1 fo3 nei5 zou6 :)

During shelter-in-place, aside from looking for jobs in the real estate/finance field, I am spending my time to obtain the Google IT certificate (Python programming language), and making pancakes using my sourdough starter--yum.

Oh, here is a Spotify Cantonese playlist of mine :)

I hope to hear from you soon and help you learn or improve your Cantonese!
