    Cantonese classes/playgroups for 4-5 yr olds?

    We're contemplating staying in HK for the summer, and I would like to look into some Cantonese classes or playgroups for my 4 and 5 year olds. Does anyone know of some kindergartens or centers that offer summer programs in Cantonese?

    Thanks in advance for any ideas!

    Have you tried the YWCA Cantonese section? I just received the summer program today and there are number of activities for kids.

    Here's the website

    Thanks rani! The courses look great.

    I wonder if it would be overwhelming to put them in a Cantonese class without knowing the language. Perhaps I'll see if there are some language learning classes too.

    Hi Syuan,

    I am also looking for some Cantonese summer camps but I assume most of the info. is in Chinese and I am unable to read.

    I am contemplating setting up something informal myself with native English speaking children who want to speak Cantonese over the summer. Maybe we could do a kids language exchange with an equal number of native Cantonese kids who want to speak English?

    I have tried various methods of teaching the children Cantonese outside school but am now coming to the realisation that the most effective and fun way to get children learning another language is under the guidance of a native speaker with other native speaking children.

    If there are any like minded mums out there, please PM me.
