    Cantonese Teacher / Nanny

    Hi All,

    Our son has just turned three and he can understand / speak only in English. We ideally want him to learn to speak Cantonese. Neither me, my husband nor our helper knows Cantonese. And our son goes to a english-speaking pre school.

    Would anyone know or would be able to suggest how to go about hiring a cantonese speaker ? We are looking for someone who can spend two hours with our son 5 days a week (post lunch). And go around with him for his normal activities. I or our helper would be around, so baby sitting expereince is not a requirement.

    We stay at Pokfulam. The university is quite close but we have no idea how to look for a student with couple of spare hours a day.

    Some advice would really help. Thanks in advance...

    In case you are still looking, here are some websites to help you. Many of the people who post on these websites are students looking for a bit of income. These will be a lot cheaper than professionals.
