There are less than a handful of Cantonese learning materials out there, and most of them are outdated. With over 9 years of teaching experience, I will help you speak the language with confidence and make sure you don't sound like a time traveler from the past. (But if you are one, hit me up!)

My students include beginners who would like to try something new; sons & daughters who wish to communicate with their family; people who are interested in Chinese culture; and professionals who want to speak fluently in business settings. Send me a message today and see how we can reach your goals together! All ages welcome!

As a native speaker that grew up in a southern china town, I love the roots and meaningfulness of this ancient language.
Although people often say that Cantonese has so many tones and it must be hard to learn, I think otherwise.
Think about singing, we all sing naturally and are capable of composing complex music. Speaking Cantonese is the same.

In my lessons, you will be able to discover the fun and joy of speaking this language.
My main focus is to help you communicate smoothly and confidently.

About Shunyu

I like to infuse games, activities and music in my classroom. I hope that you feel relaxed and confident at the end of the lesson and won’t be afraid to speak the new language with native speakers. As a musician, photographer and a mother, I will try to figure out what’s the best way for YOU

Shunyu is amazing! She puts in so much energy and care into lesson planning, and has really supported me to focus on the exact material I want to be learning. She is very patient and thorough, and makes learning fun! I am so grateful and feel very lucky to have found Shunyu. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Cantonese or Mandarin.

Shunyu is wonderful, energetic teacher that really cares about her students. She is very attentive, positive, innovative and great in communication.

Learning any language virtually is a challenge, Shunyu makes it work and makes it fun. Our son really enjoys the classes and asks for more,
Both of our sons loved their first class. Shunyu is fun and enthusiastic. They feel as if they’ve known her for a long time. They’re looking forward to their next class!

Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. This is especially true for Cantonese Chinese. I'll first practice the basic sounds and tones. Then we'll learn practical travel Cantonese--practicing simple conversations. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

About Joy

I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading,
