Hokkien Webinar

We don’t offer free trials or classes, but you can get a sneak peak of our teaching style via this dialect webinar. Bear in mind though, that this is presented with neither any face-to-face interaction, nor direct inputs from your tutor. We’ll see you in-person at the workshops for an immersive learning experience!

Learn Dialect in Person

Our face-to-face sessions give you an opportunity to learn and practise in a supportive, safe environment. Your encouraging tutor will provide you with immediate feedback, and address any questions that you may have.

Facilitator asks for our interests before the course, in order to tailor the curriculum to our needs. Very engaging activities. He is very knowledgeable, providing trivia besides only teaching what is required.

We can help your students to better communicate with dialect-speaking seniors during their MOE Values-in-Action (VIA) programmes or other volunteering activities. By the end of the dialect workshop, your students can make simple getting-to-know-you conversations with seniors, as well as give instructions for their activities. We also give guest lectures on preserving dialects in Singapore.

Translation Services

Google translation may not work 100% for dialect-related content. Having worked with many production companies and marketing agencies, we can help you to vet dialect scripts, videos and voiceovers.

Thank you, Ski and Eugene, for the enriching 2-hour lesson. I learnt a lot myself even though I’m Hokkien. Hope our kids will have the chance to apply the dialect. We’ll definitely recommend your company if anyone is looking for dialect lessons.

Rachel, Hougang Secondary School

Thank you so much for coming down to conduct the workshop for our volunteers today. We had a wonderful time learning about Hokkien as well as the Hokkien dialect itself. I would like to extend our thanks to Eugene for the engaging session as well as the comprehensive set of notes prepared.
Jenin, NUS i-Volunteer

Thank you so much, Ski & Eugene, for this guest lecture. It is a very rich and interesting talk. I read through the students’ comments and they are very inspired by what both of you are doing. 

Prof Phua, NUS Department of Chinese Studies

Thank you so much! We wouldn’t have cleared the cast’s lines so fast and easily without you guys. It was really crucial for the lines to be right especially when there are fire scenes.

Thank you, Ski and Eugene, for staying all the way with us and always accommodating to our last minute requests!
