Classes & COURSES Conversational language courses.
 
BASIC MANDARIN
Knowing Mandarin is an added advantage for those who are in the hospitality or service industries and those who go regularly on business trips or vacation in countries where it is used extensively. This course covers basic pronunciation, listening and conversational skills in just 3 months. There is also an Intermediate Level course.
 
PENANG HOKKIEN
While at work, you will often come into contact with people speaking different Chinese dialects. Knowing their dialect will make it easier to communicate with them. Why not learn Penang Hokkien especially if you are going to be in Penang for the next few years and/or working with the local Chinese.
 
BASIC THAI
Thailand, our neighbour, is where you go for a short and economical vacation. Imagine how much more enjoyable the vacation will be if you could converse with the locals in their native language.

At Penang YMCA, we offer you a basic Thai course which covers simple pronunciation and conversation.
 

SIGN LANGUAGE
The hearing impaired (HI) communicates with one another by using hand gestures. It is a visual-gestures system that makes use of hand gestures to express themselves effectively and expressively. Learning sign language will enable us to share our ideas and thoughts with them.

This course is specifically designed for individuals who have no previous knowledge of signing.
 

KARATE
Afraid of being attacked, robbed or even killed... ... when you are alone?
Is it really safe when we are in our homes?

It helps if you learn the various defence techniques, disciplines and mental alertness of self-defence. Our Karate Class offers you just that.
 

LINE DANCE
Let’s get those feet on the floor and moving to the rhythm of music. Join us now and experience the excitement in line dancing. It is a good workout to stay healthy and to improve our physical co-ordination.
 

We hope that you will make the time and effort to come and be empowered.
