Coming Workshops


Improve your Mandarin pronunciation workshop

Many students get confused with tones. They feel that they can not tell them apart, and they feel that they can not pronounce them correctly. Many times, they feel that the same pinyin is pronounced differently from what it is supposed to be pronounced, i.e. what teachers taught them. 

This workshop is going to address these confusions, and use many examples to show students two things: 1) Tones are a fluid and dynamic concept; 2) Pinyin and Mandarin pronunciations are two different things. 

This workshop will shed light on how pinyin works and present some more effective ways to improve Mandarin pronunciation, so that students do not need to memorise the tone numbers for each character/word.

After the workshop, students will increase their understanding and awareness of the four tones and the neutral tone, pronounce difficult sounds clearly and naturally, and alleviate the stress of fearing that they are not speaking the “correct tones” or the “correct pronunciations”.

This workshop is best for people who have not studied Mandarin for long and have troubles with pronouncing Chinese words. 

At the time of signing up for the workshop, students are encouraged to specify the areas where they find the most difficult. 

Workshop details:

  • HKD290 per person
  • 3:00PM - 4:20PM
  • August 26, 2021 (Thursday)
  • Register before August 23, 2021

Chinese character radical workshop

Chinese character radical is a fascinating topic! It’s always there, in every Chinese character, although quite a number of radicals seem to be invisible. 

We have got several insightful articles written on this topic, including: Chinese radicals - a fact sheet, Strokes, components and radicals of Chinese characters, and When radicals do and do not give clues to meanings of Chinese characters. 

Against popular beliefs, we recommend students not to spend too much time learning radicals. Skimming the surface is enough, and in this workshop, that’s exactly what we’re going to do, skimming the surface of Chinese character radicals.

During the workshop, students get to understand a brief outline of the main function of radicals in the Chinese writing system, and some easily identifiable Chinese radicals. For a quick practice, students are invited to identify radicals in given characters.

During the workshop, students have a chance to look up an unknown Chinese character in an old-fashioned paper-printed Chinese dictionary and gain some first hand experience.

Workshop detail:

  • HKD 290 per person
  • 3:00-4:20PM
  • July 8, 2021 (Thursday)
  • Register before July 5, 2021
