"During my volunteer work, I regularly engage our elderly residents. I wanted to better care for and communicate with them, so I signed up for Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Cultural Academy Intermediate lessons.
I chose a 1-1 lesson with Mr. Sim instead of a group class as I felt it would help me improve much faster. Before joining the class, I could already speak the language. What I needed is guidance on some common words used when engaging with residents and correction of my pronunciation, which Mr. Sim helped me a lot with.
Mr. Sim has been patient, encouraging, and a really engaging teacher. Our lessons are 2 hours long and for the first 1.5 hours, we will follow the content on the textbook provided by SHHKCA. After this, we would discuss events that happened during the week in Hokkien.
Mr. Sim even goes the extra mile to coach his students. Sometimes, during the week, I will send him voice recordings via WhatsApp of me attempting to speak some phrases, and he would respond via voice text to help correct me. :)
Highly recommend him to all students who are interested to pick up the language or improve! 谢谢 Mr. SIM！🙏 💙" Jeraldine
