About the Course:

This course is solely for the basis to learn how to hold a conversation in Cantonese. Students will work in groups to practice Cantonese with teaching assistants, and will be given both written and visual material to work with. This class will also cover aspects of Cantonese culture and how they differ from other Chinese cultures. The main goal for this course is to have students hold a simple conversation in Cantonese.
