Our Mandarin courses are professional and innovative. We believe in making language learning interactive, diverse and fun as well as informative.
In fact, our bank of native Chinese tutors are qualified, skilled and practiced at giving our students a great online experience.
We offer a beginner to advanced course and incorporate the following areas:
Our basic Chinese course introduces you to the principles of ‘pinyin’ (a widely-used method of writing Mandarin Chinese using the Latin alphabet). We also help you to master the four tones and understand Chinese pronouns, numbers, greetings, telling the time, the Mandarin calendar, saying goodbye, colours, directions, nationalities and geography. The course is intended as
a ‘taster’ for the rudimentary essentials of this language.

The aims of the course are to familiarize students with the Chinese names of popular places in China, have an adequate command of the language in order to travel, conduct basic conversational techniques (e.g. asking directions, ordering food, shopping).
For our advanced students, we look to teach you the more sophisticated phrases and dialogues you can use whilst travelling in China. This includes understanding Chinese slang and equipping you for complex situations like bargaining with the locals.
This course is really about broadening your views and knowledge about China by exploring the history, traditions, customs and arts of the country.
