Panda Cantonese Academy:
Panda Cantonese Academy was established in the autumn of 2013. We aim at providing assistance for our non-Cantonese speaking friends at any age to live, study or work happily in Hong Kong. Also, we provide a wide range of services to those students who want to overcome language barriers to pursue their dreams.
Your Cantonese Tutor:
Dilys Shiu was born in Hong Kong. She is the founder of Panda Cantonese Academy. Also, she is a very experienced Cantonese tutor who has taught students aged from 1 to 75 since 2008. She has taught students from over 20 countries including United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Australia, Spain, France, Italy, United States, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Thailand, India, Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia. They are from all walks of life with different education backgrounds.
She studied her Bachelor's Degree of Communication (Major in Chinese Journalism) at Hong Kong Baptist University in Hong Kong and her Master Degree of Management at Loughborough University in United Kingdom. She loves learning languages and is eager to understand different cultures. Currently, she is learning different languages and started the "Multilingual Music Project" in 2018. She completed the first stage with 10 songs in 2021. She also formed a group called "The Sound of Lamma" with her local students in October, 2019.
To her, Cantonese is very interesting and is definitely a language that people have to learn if they stay in this fascinating city, Hong Kong. She tries to make Cantonese an easy-to-learn language for her students. She is innovative by applying different multi-media elements and music in teaching. Her vision is to spread the seeds of Cantonese around the world by teaching more non-native Cantonese speakers.
Having profound professional knowledge and extensive operational experience in mass media, education and business, Dilys is able to help her students to get the most from the classes in an effective and fun learning way.
