What an enjoyable and instructive way into a difficult language!
After 18 months of lessons at International Language in Sheung Wan, I can safely
say itʹs one of the best investments of time and money Iʹve made here in Hong Kong.
Cantonese is a difficult language, but being a Westerner who can happily get by in taxis, restaurants,
estate agents and in simple chit chat at work definitely sets you apart and opens new doors and hearts
with local people.
The learning has been fun, personal and flexible to my job and commitments, and beyond steadily building my basic grasp of the
language, attending lessons has also given insights into Hong Kong culture and history, which are rewarding in their own right.
I wouldnʹt say itʹs easy learning Cantonese, but itʹs worth it and this is a great place to do it.
