Learn Cantonese this year! You know you want to. As you may or may not know, I have recently moved to Spain. But that's what Skype is for!

Shoot me a mail at Cecilie@penandwok and we'll set up a trial session.Read more

After 30 years in China/Hong Kong where she ran Happy Jellyfish People’s Democratic Language Bureau specialising in making Cantonese a world language with the slogan “Learn Cantonese the Natural Way – from a Norwegian!” Cecilie’s life mission as a “Cantonese Fundamentalist” was to make the whole world speak Cantonese.

She now lives in Palma de Mallorca with her two dogs, enjoying fresh air and architectural beauty.
