    English/Canto speaking playgroups in NT

    Hi. My son is 11.5 months old and we want him to learn both english and cantonese. We are overseas chinese so English and our own rural chinese dialect are our primary languages. I picked up Cantonese after arriving in HK and although I know enough to get around, it's still not good enough and I find it hard to talk to my son in Cantonese naturally.

    I'm looking for a bilingual playgroup or one with local mums/babies so that I can expose my son to more Cantonese and hopefully he'll pick it up faster.
    We live in Sheung Shui so somewhere in New Territories would be good.
    Thanks.

    Smile Playgroup in NT

    Hi

    I am also a bbc and have a daughter who is 3 years old. We live in Sheung Shui. We have been in HK for a year now. I would love to join a local playgroup for by daughter to pick up English as well as Cantonese. I would also like to social with some moms in same situation as me. My Canto is not too bad. I do miss the English contact though.

    Hi ma-ma,
    I'm hoping to meet some of the moms this/next week. Maybe you can join us later in the year when baby is older. You can pm me your email address and I'll send details of any future gatherings. Cheers.
