About CanTone

As the awardee of Good Seed Programme 2022 organized by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), CanTone has become Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund Innovative Programme in 2023.

Funded by the SIE Fund, CanTone aims to develop a fun, educational & evidence-based parent-child activity mobile app to help ethnic minority children learn Cantonese at home, so as to promote social inclusion.


The app will apply artificial intelligence (AI) to provide basic daily Cantonese vocabulary pronunciation and listening exercises for kids. (User Interface & content supports EM languages: English, Urdu, Nepali, Hindi)
