Fiona Falcone 梁藝莎

Co-Founder, PlayCantonese

Categories
Charities. Community. Culture. Education. Social Enterprise.

Fiona Falcone is included here as the co-founder of PlayCantonese, currently the UK's only Cantonese playgroup. PlayCantonese, run entirely by volunteers as a non-profit organisation, seeks to provide a Cantonese speaking environment for babies and toddlers who can learn Cantonese through song, stories and play.

After marrying an Italian and giving birth to their first child Fiona looked around for Cantonese language support for babies.
