In depth: Our Cantonese Courses in Corby

1:1 and Group Cantonese Courses in Corby

Cantonese language courses by SIMON & SIMON have been honed down to give you the greatest progress and value for money.

While we offer learning options on both a 1:1 and group basis, we find that most of our learners benefit most from 1 to 1 language training courses.

Group training offers great value for money, but the commitment and organisation to ensure the participants all show up at the same time every week is a trade-off. We recommend no more than 6 participants in a group otherwise the quality of the learning will drop dramatically for all learners.

Corby Course Management

Every SIMON & SIMON language course is overseen by one of our highly experienced Account Managers, all of whom are multi-lingual.

At the start of your Cantonese language course we will send you a profile on your trainer, followed by a Course Plan and relevant course materials, and then a Progress Report after every 40 hours of training. You will also receive a copy of our quarterly newsletter, Breaking the Language Barrier, featuring a superb prize draw and invaluable weblinks to language learning sources.

Cantonese Course Locations & Schedules

SIMON & SIMON’s network is completely international, with a strong presence across the UK. Cantonese language courses have been arranged with our experienced language teachers in almost any major city around the world. Wherever you are located, our teachers can either meet you in your office, at one of our locations, in the comfort of your home or anywhere you like by running it through Skype!

Corby Cantonese Course Schedules

We run our language courses all year long and can happen anytime between 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday. Weekend courses may also be negotiated with your teacher.

Sessions are typically 90 minutes long with at least one session per week. This can be increased or reduced according to your personal schedule.

And if you have an urgency to learn Cantonese, you can take part in an intensive Cantonese language course which consists of 6 hours every day Monday – Friday giving you 30 hours per week.

Cantonese Course Content

We do not run standardised Cantonese language courses. Instead, one of our multi-lingual Account Managers will speak to you directly and tailor the course to your particular objectives. Your teacher then guides you through your learning at the pace and in the direction that you yourself help to set.

This means that whether you’re an absolute beginning looking to “just survive” in Vietnam, or if you are a professional who wishes to understand the nuances of the language in order to perform better in a law, banking, finance, insurance, sales, travel, marketing or administration context, you will be able to find what you need with SIMON & SIMON’s Cantonese language courses.

We can also help you with pronunciation, translations, presentation skills and cultural training to help you better participate in the entirety of Cantonese culture.

Importantly, if you are looking to sit any kind of Cantonese language examinations, we can assist in your preparations and guide you through the necessary revision. We pride ourselves on achieving a 95% pass rate – which really comes down to the personal 1 to 1 language training from highly experiences Cantonese language teachers.

We will also assist in the registration and administration of these exams and can also handle the issuing of result certificates.

Cantonese Language Examination Courses

We can also help prepare you for Cantonese examinations of a business or general nature. We are proud to say our students have a 95% pass rate in language examinations, and their success further underlines the value we place on working with Cantonese teachers with above average experience.

As part of our service, SIMON & SIMON will also organise the registration and administration of Cantonese examinations and the issuing of result certificates.

About Cantonese

Cantonese is a variety of Chinese that is the lingua franca of Guangdong and a few other areas in the vicinity such as Guangxi. It is from southeastern China, in the area historically known as Canton, now known as Guangzhou. It is also the main language spoken in Hong Kong, Macau and the Pearl River Delta region in China. It is also spoken by many overseas Chinese around the Southeast Asian region such as in Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Cambodia.

 
Cantonese is mutually unintelligible to Mandarin due to differences in grammar, lexicon, and pronunciation, even though there are some common vocabulary. Most significant in differences are that Mandarin and Cantonese may often be translated differently from spoken to written – most Cantonese speakers are able to write out the full Cantonese vocabulary, and so they sometimes used a non-verbatim formalised written form which looks very similar to Mandarin. Therefore, sometimes there is text that looks similar between the two varieties but are pronounced differently.

 
Cantonese is the prestige dialect of Yue Chinese, but the term can also refer to the entire Yue branch of Chinese, including the Taishanese dialect which is actually mutually unintelligble with Cantonese. There are approximately 80 million of those who speak the closely related Yuehai dialects that we refer to as Cantonese.

Assess Your Cantonese Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Cantonese language trainer can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Cantonese in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
