Cantonese Classes Online – 粤語

Private Classes for Adults


Hills Learning’s curriculum for Cantonese comprises both language and cultural instruction. For each class, we follow our SWIRL method, developing at least three of the five language skills per class. Our main goal for Cantonese private lessons is to develop conversational skills, but we also specialize in teaching Chinese characters, cultural etiquette, or just general language acquisition. And of course, we can meet student’s individual goals and requirements.

With this basic framework, each teacher creates and develops her own teaching materials based on student needs and goals. All teachers undergo a thorough review and testing process, and also must follow guidelines and best practices from Hills Learning when creating teaching materials for Cantonese class.


Private Classes for Kids

Are you (or your young teen) interested in learning about the Cantonese language and culture? How about you have children that would like to learn Cantonese either to develop skills to communicate with family or learn Cantonese to get credit at school?

Hills Learning offers a unique opportunity for teens and kids learning Cantonese in private lessons. We can not only teach them the basics of the Chinese characters, reading, writing, and conversation, but it’s also possible that the classes your teen is taking with us can be transferred to their respective high school or college for credit. Please see for credit for further information.

Level Info

Class Levels - Beginner 1, 2, 3 AND Adv Beginner 1, 2, 3

Level Descriptions (Beginner 1, 2, 3) –
The Beginner Cantonese class is for students eager to learn the basics of Cantonese, where they will learn basic greetings and conversational skills to shop, order food, and discuss their schedules. They will also learn a basic romanization system for Cantonese, jyutping. We do not teach Chinese characters in our group courses. Our courses are designed for determined beginners who want to develop their conversational skills and being able to start forming basic sentences in Cantonese.

Level Descriptions (Adv Beginner 1, 2, 3) - 

In Advanced Beginner Cantonese, students will go more in depth in their everyday life skills in Cantonese. The advanced beginner starts out with discussing one's home, and giving commands. The student then in the next level discusses traveling, and how to give directions. Finally the advanced beginner series ends with the theme of hobbies and experiences, where we equip students to perform all basic Cantonese tasks.

All our courses relate to the ACTFL proficiency guidelines - We are aiming for students in our beginner levels to have novice mid language proficiency, working towards novice high proficiency.
