General Course descriptions

Our beginner courses are catered for students who have little to no experience learning Chinese. The focus is mainly on speaking and listening basic conversational Chinese. Students will also learn pinyin and basic characters as well as basic sentences structures.

Our intermediate courses are for students who have previously studied Chinese. These courses have a greater emphasis on writing and recognizing commonly used characters through various cultural topics.

Our advanced courses are all in Chinese with a specialization in topics, such as Chinese media or Chinese literature. These courses focus on the language and sentence structures used in those specific areas all the while exploring different aspects of that industry.
