Overview of our program

Our Head Teacher

Cantonese Teacher Anny So

Anny So

Ms. Anny So, an experienced Early Childhood Educator, has held licenses in Early Childhood Education (ECE), Infant & Toddler (IT), Montessori, and Special Needs (SN) education for 15 years. Beginning in 2012, I have been actively teaching Cantonese classes to young children. Subsequently, in 2019, I took on the role of supervising and coordinating the Cantonese programs at Fun Cantonese Basic.

"My 15 years of experience as a licensed Early Childhood Educator has taught me that every child possesses unique talents and abilities. As a Cantonese teacher, my aim is to provide an age-appropriate and non-traditional learning experience that nurtures children's curiosity, creativity, and appreciation for Chinese culture.

Our program aims to instill basic Cantonese knowledge and Chinese cultural understanding that inspires students to further explore the Cantonese language and Chinese heritage on their own. Ultimately, I hope to help preserve the Chinese heritage and Cantonese language for future generations while fostering strong family bonds by enabling children to learn and speak Cantonese, thereby maintaining positive relationships with their parents and grandparents."

Anny So老師擁有 15 年的持牌幼兒教育經驗,持有嬰幼兒 ,蒙特梭利和特殊教育執照。她從 2012 年開始教授粵語,隨後,在 2019 年,我開始監督和營運 Fun Cantonese Basic 粵語課程

"作為一名有執照的幼兒教育工作者, 15 年的經驗告訴我,每個孩子都擁有獨特的才能和能力。作為一名粵語教師,我的目標是提供適合年齡的非傳統學習體驗,培養孩子們的好奇心、創造力和對中國文化的欣賞。我們的計劃宗旨在灌輸基本粵語知識和中國文化理解,激發學生進一步探索粵語和中國傳統。最後,我希望通過讓孩子們學習和說粵語,幫助後代保護粵語傳統和語言,同時培養牢固的家庭連結,從而與父母和祖父母保持積極良好的關係"
