Why Little Explorers Cantonese?
Children learn best when they are engaged in playful ways. That's why you will find we make our classes a joyful learning experience. We will sing, tell stories, draw and engage in a variety of fun activities, all in Cantonese. Our program always has the children first in our minds. Our songs, stories and lessons consider the child's developmental stages and different learning styles. Our talented team of creators plans and creates our own curriculum for the children.
Our mission is to develop and nurture a love for the Cantonese language and culture by connecting it to fun memories. We understand that Cantonese classes and resources may be hard to find for some communities. That's why our classes are online and on demand to make Cantonese learning accessible to all. With on demand, you are free to enjoy the lessons at any time and as many times as you like.
How It Works
Once enrolled into a course, you will have unlimited access to all the lessons and resources. Your family has the power to schedule these lessons at a time that your child is most focused. There is no rush to other commitments. You are in control. You can also choose which components of the course you want to complete. We understand that not every family learning goals include reading and writing. These are scheduled at the end of our lessons so that you can conveniently stop the lesson after the activity or craft.
We will build your child's Cantonese listening skills and help expand their vocabulary. Since these are pre-recorded lessons, you can re-watch or repeat certain parts of the lessons to build a stronger understanding. We want your child to learn the language without feeling like they are in a language classroom. We will sing songs, tell stories, do activities and crafts that engages their minds, and explore their creativity through art. We want your child to have fun and request for more Cantonese lessons!
