What We Do

Subtle Cantonese University 2020 Summer Semester

SCU launched a 3-month long summer course on Subtle Cantonese Traits Discord with over 100 students. Every week, students gather for classes dedicated to listening, speaking and writing. The course covers from basic daily phrases to topics related to the pandemic. 


Hi teacher! I really enjoyed this semester of SCU and you really helped grow my confidence. I grew up speaking Mandarin with my parents so I never really had a good place to practice Canto so Im very very thankful!!

Emily SCU Student

Thank you Teacher! Im a non-native speaker and I'm learning so much more Cantonese in your lessons than I ever thought I would. I appreciate all the work that you and the TAs do each week!

多謝老師!你的課真好犀利。我希望我小时候有过这样的课程 🙂

Thank you, Teacher! Your lessons are really awesome. I wished I had similar classes when I was young 🙂
