Active student participation:

Our virtual playgroup aims to introduce Cantonese to non-fluent speakers and to reinforce the usage of Cantonese to fluent speakers.  Our activities will all be carried out in Cantonese to create a 100% listening and speaking environment. In our session, we will:

  • Greetings
  • Introduce the theme of the day or instructions of the game
  • Fun activities (singing, dancing, or story reading) and/or group games!
