Sue Marguerite's course "Level 1- Chinese Characters in Cantonese Pronunciation" was fantastic. Learning character writing and comprehension, in both formal written and spoken Cantonese, has been a wonderful lesson in my ongoing Cantonese learning process. While many teachers focus on the spoken language only-- it is important to learn some basic characters and how the spoken Cantonese diverges from the formal written characters. Sue Marguerite's style of teaching was very engaging and thoughtful in her understanding of the learner's perspective and challenges. I enjoyed the class tremendously and plan to attend the next level.

"The Level 1 Chinese Characters in Cantonese Pronunciation course was a fantastic experience. The university level course material was thorough and very well organized. Learning new characters in context with sentences helped me quickly understand how different Chinese characters and expressions are used in writing and speaking. One of the key values of the course is that Sue Marguerite teaches the pronunciation of the sentences in standard written Chinese, the pronunciation in everyday spoken Cantonese, and in English. Learning the first 100 characters in this course was much easier than I had expected. Sue Marguerite is an exceptional teacher and coach. She helps you pronounce each of the characters and coaches you when you’re a little bit off with respect to the tones. The entire course was a lot of fun while being educational at the same time.”

"Sue is a great teacher! She is patient and knowledgeable. The classes are fun and go at an easeful pace where you don't feel overwhelmed. However, that does not mean you won't learn much. I am surprised at how much I have learned from the course. It is a great feeling recognizing Chinese characters, or even better, reading whole sentences!"
