I was born and raised in Canada but grew up with parents from Hong Kong and the Guongdong. I have a music degree in Piano Performance and ran a Cantonese playgroups in England when I lived there for 12 years. I help all students understand what a Chinese radical, stroke, and measure word is as the basic foundation of learning Cantonese.
When you apply language learning to a skill or topic that you're interested in, I believe you can learn faster. Ask me about teaching you common phrases useful for travel, business, sports, education or parenting.
This answer depends on the individual student. Patience, step-by-step guidance, and dedication are the key to success.
Learning Cantonese in Vancouver is the same as learning Cantonese anywhere in the world. I learned the bulk of my Cantonese in the UK, in a city with only a handful of families from Hong Kong. I mainly used resources online and also ordered books direct from Hong Kong and designed a course that worked for me.
Vancouver has the advantage of having a large Cantonese population so the exposure to the language is big but to learn how to construct proper phrases, one should consult the books/dictionary/tutor.
