Programmes
New Evening Classes in January, April, July & October
New Saturday Classes in January, May & September
<Foundation Certificate in Chinese as a Foreign/ Second Language (Cantonese) > is recognized under the Qualifications Framework.

Widely spoken in Hong Kong, Macau, Guangdong Province, Cantonese is one of the seven major dialects of China. It is also
the most widely spoken Chinese dialect by overseas Chinese communities. Its origin dates from as early as the Qin Dynasty
(221 to 206 BC). During the Song Dynasty (960 to 1279 AD), the occupation of northern China by foreign invaders caused an
exodus of the Han Chinese to southern China, where the Cantonese dialect took shape. Hong Kong is the only place in China
where people think in their own dialect (Cantonese) and use it officially to discuss serious issues. Its long heritage and countless
ties to ancient Chinese culture, together with the fact that Cantonese has far-reaching influence on the pop culture among the
Asian Pacific region, all these have made Cantonese a very interesting and essential language.

Yale-China Chinese Language Centre, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The Centre
Founded in 1963 under the joint auspices of New Asia College and the Yale-China Association, the Centre became part of the
Chinese University in 1974 and has been responsible for the teaching of Chinese language (Putonghua and Cantonese) of
University students as well as other Putonghua and Cantonese learners. Courses are offered in two different series: for nonnative speakers and for native speakers of Chinese. All the series have different levels to meet the needs and aptitude of
students.

The Programme
Cantonese training modules:
At beginner level, the modules focus on oral skills and listening comprehension, with proficiency-oriented activities based on
useful vocabulary items, daily expressions and a wide variety of patterns. Upon intermediate and advanced level, more topics
and activities will be linked to the needs shared by students of the similar profession or background. For reference only,
students are usually expected to spend no less than 4 hours a week on revision to make progress.
