Adult Mandarin & Cantonese

If you are an adult learner, embark on a journey to learn Mandarin or Cantonese, two of the most widely spoken Chinese languages. Learning Chinese opens the door to a rich tapestry of culture, history, and global communication. Mandarin, with over a billion native speakers, serves as the official language of China and is gaining increasing importance on the global stage. Cantonese, spoken in regions such as Hong Kong and parts of Southern China, possesses its own unique charm and cultural significance.

Whether driven by academic, professional, or personal aspirations, the pursuit of Mandarin and Cantonese can offer a rewarding and stimulating journey with two of the most widely spoken heritage languages in Canada!

Who should enrol?

Mandarin Voyagers is grouped by age (6-8 years old and 9+ years old) and skill level (beginner to advanced). It is designed with a clear progression between levels and outcomes, but without the repetition and tediousness of traditional academic language classes. We still keep to our teaching philosophy of ensuring children enjoy learning and want to come back to class. With the Mandarin Voyagers program, your child will become confident and proud of being able to speak Mandarin!
