Cantonese Class for Undergraduate Students
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 10 sections including 7 lessons (classroom learning), 3 practicums (practice outside classroom in a real situation). Local students are recruited as tutors and mentors. Tutors are responsible for teaching in the lessons and mentors are responsible for leading practicums. During the 3 practicums, mentors lead Mainland freshmen to practice daily dialogues in Cantonese through ice-breaking games, dinner gathering and city hunt.
Tutors and mentors are required to attend training, which will be provided by MSSU.
