Description

With two levels of Chinese course available, alongside private tutoring options, our curriculum is sourced from several renowned Chinese language institutions, including Princeton University’s Chinese Language Programme and HSK, China’s standardised language proficiency test.

 

Guided by our highly experienced teachers, our fun and interactive classes aim to support students throughout their Chinese language journey, from basics like learning to count to debating wide-ranging societal issues – all in a positive, nurturing and open-minded environment.

 

Chinese 101

Aimed at Chinese language novices, this elementary-level course introduces phonetics and commonly-used expressions, giving students a vital grounding in the basics of spoken Chinese Mandarin.

 

We will use real-world situations to teach students how to communicate in everyday situations – including general topics of conversation such as how to describe yourself, the weather, hobbies, food items, telling the time, city life, and how to ask for prices.

 

These spoken exercises are augmented with a curated selection of reading materials and practice activities that ensure the course is as rich and varied as possible, making for a diverse and interesting programme designed to captivate and stimulate new learners.

 

Chinese 201

This course is designed for bilingual students who already have foundations in spoken English or Chinese.

 

Students will learn in-depth about phonetics, grammar and Chinese characters – tackling both reading and writing, alongside conversational skills. This course also includes sections dedicated to the history and culture of Chinese civilisation, giving students an all-round understanding and appreciation for the Chinese language.
