Hello! 你好! I was born and raised in Hong Kong, a native local. I'm an experienced private Cantonese tutor and professional aromatherapy practitioner. I started this experience for foreigners in town to continuously learn their languages skills - Hong Kong Language as a second language for fun and for essential use, enjoy being out and about the stories of Hong Kong, culture and heritage.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our class in an unique Starbucks: a successful creative Starbucks - brought the born of Duddell Street Starbucks Bing Sutt in Central, the World’s first ever Starbucks store to incorporate a “BING SUTT” (冰室 Ice House) corner to appreciate the rich heritage of Hong Kong, both past and present. A must-do-list while travelling to Hong Kong.

This is an excellent experience; a very nice introduction to Cantonese, and lots of good information about the city and stuff to see and do. As mentioned below, the paper of vocabulary is very nice, too. Highly recommend.

Isabella provided us with a English -Cantonese reference sheet with a clear objective to teach us how to order a drink in Cantonese. This was excellent! The six different tones was modeled only in context but I had some familiarity with the concept of tone and Chinese sounds. This is a nice introductory experience for language learning. We appreciate Bella waiting for us when we arrived late and still spending an hour teaching us. She offered to show us some other areas of the city, but that took more time than anticipated.

당장 사용할 수 있는 간단한 예시로 (숫자, 커피 주문하기) 배운 것을 바로 사용할 수 있도록 강의가 구성되어 있고, 편안하고 유쾌하게 분위기를 만들어주었다.

Isabella provided a great basic introduction to learning some basic Cantonese words and phrases. I particularly liked that she broke down words that were hard for me to pronounce. This made it easier for me to learn. By the end I was able to order a coffee in Cantonese :)

Pleasant and simple,may not bad for a beginner,but as a native speaker,learning then giving the basis of CORRECT theory to foreign people who is curious about our own language is also very important.
