From http://ycc-yvr.com/saturday-school/ :

Learn survival Cantonese and get oriented to the neighbourhood! Saturday School offers place-based Cantonese language learning in Vancouver Chinatown, a National Historic Site and living Cantonese community. The historic Mon Keang Chinese School will be our classroom, and the area's streets, shops and spaces will be our textbooks. Through guided field studies, we will hear stories about Chinatown history, community organizing, and historic and current relationships with the diverse cultural communities that share this space. Our final exam will be a grocery shopping expedition and shared meal.

Please note this is a Beginner's level course designed for Adult learners, and focused on conversational Cantonese (no reading or writing).

Saturday School originally ran in 2014 as a public program of Centre A and its exhibit, M’goi/Do Jeh: Sites, Rites and Gratitude, curated by Tyler Russell. The program was guest curated by participating artist Kathryn Gwun-Yeen Lennon 姚君妍 (a co-founder of Youth Collaborative for Chinatown), in collaboration with linguist and language instructor, Zoe Lam 林慧雯, and with numerous neighbourhood partners.
