Rainbow Seeds’ teaching approach is child-centred and based on learning through play. We provide children with sensory, real-life experiences that put Cantonese in context.
We tailor our learning methods to the level of the class and the children's interests. We give them opportunities to be creative using the words and phrases they learn. Take a look at our storybook project, a collection of stories created by our students.
A comfortable learning environment is key too. We encourage you to stay for the class, so your child feels happy and confident. It also means you can pick up techniques to use at home to reinforce your child's learning.
Children also need human interaction to learn a language. Rainbow Seeds’ teachers trained as kindergarten teachers in Hong Kong and follow the Hong Kong Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide and Heep Hong Society’s Developmental Stages.
How we teach your child Cantonese
When children learn Cantonese, they first start listening and speaking. They then gradually develop reading and writing skills.
The following table will help you judge which class is most suitable for your child. We devised it from our experience and understanding of how bilingual children develop language skills, and it is based on the Hong Kong Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide and the Heep Hong Society’s Developmental Stages. The age is a guide: the best class for your child will depend on their exposure and ability.
- The table list the some examples of learning process, please feel free to contact us if you would like to disscuss more.
- If in doubt, the teacher will make a recommendation after the class.
- Class content is tailored to the Cantonese proficiency of the class.
- The topic column is a reference example. Different classes may touch on the same topics, but the depth will vary. The exact content will depend on the students' level of Cantonese experience.
What our parents say about Rainbow Seeds
Over 50 bilingual families in London have chosen Rainbow Seeds to support their child’s Cantonese learning. With our parents’ continuous support and encouragement, we’ve made excellent progress. Here is what some of our parents say about Rainbow Seeds:
Ms Ceci is a nice teacher and her teaching is engaging and fun for kids. Her methods allow children to remember Chinese characters easily. There is a good balance of fun games, music and learning in the class.
I highly recommend Ms. Ceci Pang and her teaching methodology. She has been teaching my twin girls since they were about 2 years old (now 3.5 years old) and we have seen significant progress. Her classes are fun and creative.
I have seen a vast improvement and progress in my children’s Cantonese speaking and vocabulary – this has also been highlighted by family members.
Learning Cantonese through play, unlike typical classes in London. Fun and interactive, covering daily life topics. Best way to learn. We couldn't recommend enough.
My son is only 3.5 years old and she manages to keep him engaged and interested even though our lessons are online, which is very difficult to do. She has loads of ideas to make learning fun and she adapts quickly if something doesn't work as expected, by changing the activity or trying a new way to present a topic.
