Hong Kong Talent Engage hosts Cantonese classes for arriving talent (with photos)
     A spokesman for Hong Kong Talent Engage (HKTE) today (April 12) said that Cantonese classes had been held for talent who have arrived in the city to assist them to integrate into the community.

     The first two junior Cantonese classes were held on April 10 and today in HKTE, 12/F, Revenue Tower, Wan Chai. Instructors arranged by designated partners introduced Cantonese knowledge to new arrivals. Oral communication training was provided for them to master the daily application and basic skills.

     The spokesman said, "The Government conducted a survey in November 2023 to follow up on Top Talent Pass Scheme visa holders who have arrived in Hong Kong for over six months. Results revealed that a number of incoming talents hoped to learn more about Cantonese and the local living and culture. HKTE is committed to providing comprehensive one-stop support services to incoming talent and works with designated partners to hold diversified online and physical activities in various areas of living as well as information across sectors or skill sets, thereby helping them adapt quickly and integrate into the local living."

     Since March 2024, HKTE has been hosting regular themed seminars and workshops on a range of topics including job search, entrepreneurship, education, accommodation, living tips and learning Cantonese in collaboration with partners. Online mode has also been introduced to the themed seminar on living tips and healthcare information this afternoon to enable talent to attend.

     Talent who have arrived in Hong Kong may obtain event details from the HKTE social media or by contacting HKTE via email (hkte@hkengage.gov.hk).
