This page will coordinate Cantonese language study in San Francisco.


Potential tutors:


Currently, the best offer is $1600 for an unlimited number of students, 15 sessions of 90 minutes. Splitting this, the cost will be very reasonable. We should also look for a small grant.


Study groups

Hopefully we can set up regular practice in-between classes, at the New Montgomery office.


In addition to the hard-core classes, there could be additional events for people who want to engage but can't spare much time.

  • Brown-bag talks: language, culture
  • Movies in the office
  • Art at the office: "pimp my walls", performance, music
  • Field trips to 唐人街 / tong yan gai
