Cantonese lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival Cantonese - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying Cantonese usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these Cantonese classes have been those investing in or buying property overseas, those married to overseas nationals, people setting off on a round-the-world trip, enthusiasts in Cantonese culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam in Cantonese.
These lessons in Cantonese are meant for those that feel that learning Cantonese would make a change in their work. For starters, it is expedient to learn how to say hello/goodbye, as well as basic business protocol; once the basics have been mastered, reading and writing come to the fore. Students who have greatly benefitted have been involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where another language is required, and those working in the international academia and government circuits. Even on our most fundamental beginner's lesson, students can anticipate ending the lesson with basic telephone Cantonese and e-mail Cantonese skills for communicating, as well as survival Cantonese if a short visit to the country is needed.
Lessons in Cantonese are also accessible for 2 or more studying in tandem (Two-to-One Cantonese Lesson or Small Group In-Company Cantonese Lesson). All those involved must have around the same experience of the language, similar needs of areas of proficiency, and must be able to work at the same time and place. Bookings must be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advise classes of more than 6-8 people, although In-Company Taster Cantonese sessions can be run with as many as 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!"
New YorkNew York City is the most densely-populated city in the United States, with over 8.2 million residents within just 322 square miles; and its residents boast an exceptionally diverse mix of cultural backgrounds. 38 per cent of the population of New York is foreign-born, but with no dominant nationality the mixture of languages spoken throughout the city is astonishing - recent studies estimate around 170 different languages are spoken throughout New York. Even though it is rarely thought of as a hub for learning, the Big Apple also lays claim to the largest department of education in the USA, and features many of the USA's most elite and influential private schools. With its broad range of cultures and huge influence in the field of international business, New York is a great place to learn a new language in a private setting, as well as granting you plenty of avenues for daily practice and improvement.
