Rainbow seeds has been running lively and interactive children's Cantonese classes in London. Our mission is to support your child's Cantonese-learning journey. We help them build their confidence and proficiency through fun group lessons and tailored private lessons. We harness the power of play to teach your children in a way that's inspired by their interests. Our trained kindergarten teachers will support your child as they learn Cantonese, from preschool to primary school.
"Language is more than simply communication. It’s a way for your child to connect with their heritage and make sense of their world."
Cantonese learners have access to fewer resources than more widely spoken languages. Books for native Cantonese speakers are often unsuitable for bilingual children living abroad. Their complexity can frustrate the child, leading to disengagement.
To answer this need, we have created resources especially for bilingual Cantonese families.
Rainbow Seeds nurtures our children like little seedlings. We sow the seeds of their vocabulary, cultivate their pronunciation, and help them grow in confidence so they can reap the rewards of speaking Cantonese.
Your children are like Rainbow Seeds
Children are like seeds. With gentle nurturing and space to develop, they have endless potential.
Teachers and parents shower them with support and in time they bloom into unique flowers.
But learning Cantonese is challenging. There are stormy days. Sometimes even thunder and lightning.
Then the storm clouds part. The teacher appears like the sun, shining their light upon the child. They help them learn to listen, read, write, and speak. They address their challenges and give them solutions. The rainy days gradually disappear and a rainbow appears.
A rainbow is happy and comforting: the perfect environment for learning a language. We help parents recreate this environment at home so they can carry on supporting their child.
Why choose Rainbow Seeds for your children's Cantonese classes?
Our registered, professional kindergarten teachers nurture our children like little seedlings. We help them grow in confidence and ability as their Cantonese proficiency grows.
Your child will learn words and phrases associated with their daily life.
Cantonese becomes a part of their everyday life and has more meaning. This gives them an incentive to carry on learning. We harness your child's imagination and interests. Their stories inspire our Cantonese learning resources they can then use at home.
Your opinions and ideas as a parent help us improve our lessons.
We collect your thoughts and then make changes where necessary. This helps us make sure your child will get the most out of the language session.
We’ll help you apply our teaching methods and techniques at home.
This will help your child learn more effectively. We can help you with challenges such as: how can you make children understand that Cantonese has one sound per word? Why do they still not understand what a word means even after repeating it many times? How can you get them to say and recognise words more easily?
Get access to resources created especially for bilingual Cantonese families.
We've combined our experience teaching bilingual children Cantonese with educational resources from Hong Kong. This has inspired an interactive exercise book that your child will have access to.
