These Cantonese lessons are more general in nature and are targeted at students with a whole range of different needs. While all beginners level students can expect to cover Survival Cantonese - required for short visits to a country where English may not be spoken and/or the intention is to make good contacts with the local population, students then generally progress in different directions depending on their needs. Typical students include those buying property overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people about to set off on that long-awaited world trip, Cantonese culture enthusiasts and those who are keen to pass a particular Cantonese examination.
These Cantonese Lessons are intended for people who really need to learn Cantonese to help make that difference in their work. For beginners, it will be useful to learn greetings and basic business etiquette, at higher levels reading and then writing become more important. Typical students include those involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where an additional language is required, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government. Even on our most basic lesson for Beginners, students should expect to end the lesson with basic Telephone Cantonese and e-mail Cantonese skills for communications as well as Survival Cantonese required for short visits to a country.
2 or more people can benefit studying Cantonese together as these Cantonese lessons are also offered to groups (Two-to-One Cantonese Lesson or Small Group In-Company Cantonese Lesson). Every student must have the same degree of knowledge of the language, the same business or language needs and the ability to study at the same time and place as everybody else. The booking has to be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advocate group sessions of more than 6-8 people, though Taster Cantonese Lessons can be experienced by up to 12 people.
"I love going to my Italian lessons. Every week we cover new topics and I get to practice with my Italian friends outside of class. I don't think they can believe how fast I've improved thanks to Listen & Learn, and neither can I!"
