Posted: Mar 3, 2009 by NUS SSWS in Labels: , ,

Do you ever feel that you have difficulties communicating with your grandparents?

Or for future social workers and social work students who are going for placement this semester, are you worried that you will have problems interacting with your clients because they only know how to speak in dialects which you seldom, or never, have experience in?

Or you just want to understand what the cast in Hong Kong drama series and movies are saying in their smooth Cantonese language?

Have no fears! The Society of Social Work Students is here again with another round of its annual dialect workshops which there will be experienced instructors teaching you Hokkien and Cantonese dialects. These workshops are guaranteed to be interactive and fun!
