Queenie and the Team Kawa Kawa

Kawa Kawa Learning Studio started as an online Chinese and Japanese language learning and study guide. Our founder, Queenie, discovered that many people were struggling with learning Chinese andJapanese. All because they weren't taught the culture and practical usage of the language. With this in mind, Queenie created Kawa Kawa with a team of Chinese and Japanese language and culture fans. Our goals was simple... help people learn Japanese and discover it's amazing culture.


We went from teaching people the basics of Japanese to ‘one-on-one’ mentoring and virtual classroom sessions. Before we knew it we were organizing study abroad and cultural exchange trips for our students. And then we started doing the exact same thing for people who want to learn Cantonese and English! We weren’t just a little group of dedicated friends teaching and sharing their love of the Japanese language anymore. Thanks to our awesome students, we ended up growing into something more.


It was at this point that we realized that what Kawa Kawa does best is helping people develop the skill to study, work and live anywhere with confidence. So we set out to build a platform where people from all over the world can come and build their global future through 5 Pillars of Global Skills.
