Cantonese Part-time Programmes

A wise choice for busy professionals to learn Chinese language progressively.

These programmes were first launched at CUHK in 2007 with under 30 students. They have then flourished to attract more than 250 students per academic term to study in different locations. They are less intensive but require a longer duration than the full-time programmes to achieve a similar level of proficiency.

New weekday evening classes in January, April, July and October.

New Saturday classes in January, May and September.

Course load: 2 to 3 sessions a day, 1 to 2 days per week, 40 sessions per quarter, lessons on weekday evenings or Saturdays.

Class location: CUHK Shatin campus.
