Cantonese Mentor for Undergraduate Freshmen

This programme is co-organised by Association of Mainland and Hong Kong Youths (AMHKY) and Mainland Student Services Unit (MSS). 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, 8 lessons (classroom learning) and 2 practicums (practice outside classroom in a real life situation). Local students are recruited as mentors to teach Mainland freshmen Cantonese.
