Little Panda Cantonese is ..

Little Panda Cantonese was conceived with the single aim of helping children learn the Cantonese language and achieve their potential during the crucial growth years. Most of our students have family connections to the Cantonese language, and/or the Hong Kong culture, but we welcome all children with a keen interest to learn and have fun !

School

Little Panda Cantonese is first and foremost, an after-school activity to teach children to speak, read and write the Cantonese language. It is organized in classes taught by qualified teachers. Each class is conducted in Cantonese and centered around a story, with changing relating themes, and offers a wide range of learning opportunities for babies and children, up to teenage years old. The class allows children to learn through play, maintaining their interest and interaction, with new vocabulary introduced at each session. Children are encouraged to communicate, play together and make friends.

Holiday Camps

Centred around school term holidays, the Little Panda camps are week long programs, organised by qualified teachers, promoting Cantonese learning, while doing fun activities. Camps involve visiting multiple sites like parks, museums, beaches, ... and help children practice their Cantonese in real-world environments.

Books & Teaching Material

Little Panda Cantonese has access to providers of good quality book resources in Hong Kong, which we can deliver to UK-based families. Follow our Facebook group to browse new titles. Orders can be placed on the website.

Head Teacher

I graduated from The Education University of Hong Kong and have a bachelor degree of Early Childhood Education. I have 5 years experience teaching children in Hong Kong. I received my Grade 8 piano certificate with distinction, and have 4 years expedience in teaching piano and music theory.

I believe that early childhood is the most important part in a person’s development, which determines the future of a child’s outlook on life. Through different activities, I hope I can play an important role in your child’s positive thinking, teaching them how to communicate with the others, and learn more about their Chinese culture and customs.
