Our students have a variety of reasons for wanting to learn Chinese: to improve employment opportunities, for travel purposes, or purely for the pleasure of learning the beautiful script. Whatever your reason for wanting to study Chinese, it is, of course, very important that you choose the best location and course for you.
There are a number of factors involved in choosing the right location, course, and accommodation. We understand this, and this is why we make every effort to visit our partner schools regularly, so that you are able to speak to someone with first-hand experience. If you are interested in taking a Chinese course, why not call us and ask to speak to Phillippa, who has visited our schools in Beijing and Shanghai? Phillippa really enjoyed her time at our schools in China, and would love to discuss them with you.
Spoken by one-fifth of the world's population, Chinese is fast becoming one of the world's top international languages. If you choose to learn Chinese on one of our Mandarin Chinese language courses, you'll be studying one of six official languages of the UN, spoken from Republic of China to Taiwan, Singapore and beyond. Although most speakers of Chinese speak one of several varieties of the language, Mandarin Chinese is the common language of communication in the media, education and administration across Asia.
You can choose to learn to speak Chinese at one of our Chinese language schools in Beijing (capital city of China), Shanghai (China’s largest city), or the beautiful coastal resort of Qingdao. We also have a Chinese language school in Xi'an, close to the magnificent Terracotta Army!
We offer a wide range of Chinese language courses, from our popular ‘Intensive’ (20 group lessons per week), ‘Super-Intensive’ (25+ group lessons per week) and Private Lessons, to our special interest courses such as ‘Chinese and Work Experience’, ‘Chinese and Tai Chi’ and ‘Chinese and Art’. Whichever location and course you choose, you will be taught by native Chinese speakers, with both a university degree and a qualification in teaching Chinese as a foreign language to students of all levels, from complete beginner to advanced! If you have any questions regarding our Chinese language courses, please do contact us.
The teachers were very friendly, helpful and patient. They don't teach only the language. They also talk about their culture, eating and their life. That was very interesting and helpful.
The school was really good and the teacher was really nice, I have learned a lot with him. The school staff was really kind and helpful, they take good care of the students. It was a really nice experience.
My stay in Beijing is coming to an end. It was a wonderful experience. I can only recommend the school to any other people out there who want to embark on the journey to learn Chinese.
Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, the teaching was really good and I learnt a lot. They organised activity trips as well to complement the language lessons.
Very good course, teachers are very good and friendly, which provides the best atmosphere to for students to learn Chinese and enjoy their time in China.
Private lessons were good for catering to individual needs. Some of the lessons from the textbook were helpful too. Accomodation was tidy and warm, rooms were cleaned frequently.
The school was very accommodating to my language level, and went out of their way to make sure I had appropriate teaching. I believe it was highly effective and my spoken Chinese is much better than it was when I arrived!
The director of education and both my teachers did their very best to suit my needs and interests. Consequently, I am well satisfied with the progress made.
