Our Teacher

Cantonese Teacher Anny So

Anny So

Our teacher Ms. Anny So has more than 10 years experience as a Licensed Early Childhood Educator. Apart from ECE, Infant & Toddler, she holds Special Needs Licenses. She has been a Cantonese Teacher since 2012 and now runs Cantonese programs at Fun Cantonese Basic.

"From being a ECE teacher, I learned that each child is unique and talented in their own different way. My goal is to provide a non-traditional and age appropriate Cantonese learning experience to cultivate the attitudes, habits, and appreciations that will enable the child to explore, question, and discover the Chinese culture. The goal of our program is to provide the basic knowledge of the Chinese culture which inspire their interest to pursuit on their own."
