I am a graduate student from Monash University, Anny Pau. I am finishing my course in November and I am planning to get some experience in teaching. I am proficient in Cantonese and mandarin.
Compared to mandarin, Cantonese is harder for native English speakers to learn. The key in doing Cantonese is to learn the 9 tones. Then, we can proceed to some basic vocabulary. Connect those vocabularies to sentences to learn the grammar. Thus, we can try to read an article 10-15 lines short. Each lesson we can listen to some Cantonese audios to remind students of the pronunciations. We can then ask students what did they hear and write them down. After each lesson could ask students to do some homework in writing, listening, and reading. For speaking, we could ask students to speak more and more Cantonese in the lesson, but no need to speak too much at first. Lastly, the ways in teaching Cantonese or any other language could be flexible for each student. It means the way of teaching could be different for each student. This will happen during after-class hours. But in the class, this will be my way of teaching Cantonese.
For mandarin, this will be the same but it is easier to learn.
