Worum es bei uns geht

Swiss (Zürich) Chinese Cantonese Culture & Language

According to Wikipedia*, Chinese Cantonese 粵語 / 廣東話 / 白話 is spoken by as many Italian speakers and is ranked just outside the top 20 most spoken languages worldwide. Cantonese is the main lingua franca of Hong Kong, Macau and Southeastern regions in China. It is also widely spoken in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia), in Chinatowns overseas and where Chinese community is present around the globe.

Historically, traditional Cantonese can be traced further back to Middle Chinese, a language spoken by Han Chinese people of the Tang Empire than Mandarin (Putonghua, based on the Peking dialect, which was created barely 300 years ago). If chanted in Mandarin, most medieval Chinese poems will not rhyme but will do so only using Cantonese.

From popular original HK box-office film hits, Cantopop to world famous Cantonese cuisines like Dim Sum, or perhaps working or traveling in HK/Macau and to establish a business gateway to mainland China, there's no better time to learn this living language, ranked as the third most spoken Chinese language in the world (behind Mandarin and Wu).

Thanks to Bruce Lee and dedicated practitioners everywhere, the language of traditional, authentic Wing Chun Kung Fu 詠春拳 remains as Cantonese. Whether you are a beginner, fluent or native Chinese speaker, you are encouraged to join our little family here in Zürich to learn more about our mother tongue and fascinating culture (and make new friends along the way!)

Our main language focus is on Cantonese where other Chinese languages (Mandarin, etc.) are also represented in our group.

Lessons will be conducted in Mandarin, English, German and other languages, if available.
