Hello, name is Yuri. I am a Cantonese native speaker and a master second year student in ESSEC. I am very proud of my Cantonese origin and I am passionate about sharing and spreading the Cantonese culture and language to more people.
I enjoy being a teacher. I like to interact with people through teaching and I feel fulfilled when I see my students progress with my help. When I was in university, I worked as a part-time English teaching assistant for children and also gave a lot of lectures on knowledge about gemstones which is what I studied in the university. Now I am in France, I would like to explore my life here and share with you my cultures through language teaching.
Cantonese is a very beautiful and sophisticated language. It shares a lot of vocabulary with Mandarin and it preserved some characteristics of ancient Chinese. It has beautiful tones and pronunciation, but they are also the most difficult part to learn, and it requires daily practice and memorization. I believe the best way to learn Cantonese is to learn about the language system with instructions, and then keep imitating and practicing with native speakers.
No matter you are interested in Cantonese culture or you want to work or live in Canton, or you just simply want to follow your HK idols, it’s important to be clear about your learning goal and we will decide the class content according to that. I am looking forward to meet you!
Imitating and practice with native speakers
Cantonese is not that easy to learn, but with instructions and practice, it's not terrifying. We will mainly focus on speaking, including the pronunciation, tones and some daily expressions and slangs, which will help you find language sense and be familiar with this language. Since it is one of the Chinese languages, if you know basic Chinese you will feel more relieved.
