Cantonese Mentor for Undergraduate Freshmen

Mainland Student Services
27 AUG - 23 SEP 2018

This programme is co-organised by AMHKY and MSSU. Mainland freshmen can learn Cantonese and socialise with local students outside the classroom setting through this programme.

There are 11 sections including 1 lecture on pinyin, 7 lessons (classroom learning) and 3 practicums (practice outside classroom in a real life situation). Local students are recruited as mentors.
