General Mandarin Classes

Who takes this class?

General Mandarin Classes are for all students from the absolute beginner level (for students who have no Chinese language skills) to an extremely advanced level.

Most students should choose this course, and only when students have special requirements in terms of time or content, should they consider selecting other courses, such as Business Chinese, courses for Cantonese speakers, or preparatory courses.

If you want to systematically improve your Chinese proficiency, regardless of the time or level, you can find a suitable class with us.

Why should I learn this class?

If you want to significantly enhance your Chinese language skills, this is your best choice.

This course is not only focusing on Mandarin listening and speaking skills, but also reading and writing.

If you’ve been being trying hard and following our instructions, but still can’t master the material for a particular class, don’t worry! If you’re in that situation, you can retake that group class free of charge!

Actually, at various times, all students find themselves needing some kind of extra help to improve their Mandarin, and we’re always ready to help.

Have you ever thought about learning Chinese, but found it difficult after hearing or studying a bit, leading you to give up?  Why do our students find it not too difficult and even interesting?

Have you reached a certain level and felt that you couldn't see any progress?  Why can our students consistently improve to an advanced or business Chinese level?

Have you studied for a while and felt that your listening and speaking skills are poor, but didn't know what to do? Why do our students have better oral and listening abilities than those who have lived in China for five years?

Have you thought that your Chinese is pretty good, only to suddenly discover that some topics, especially more specialized conversations, are challenging?  You've come to the right place; we are a group of professional Chinese teachers who have taught Mandarin to adults for tens of thousands of hours, lecturing to thousands of people. Helping our students overcome these issues is our expertise.

What is there to learn?

Our teaching materials are designed specifically for adult part-time learners who are studying in North America. Most other textbooks, by contrast, are designed for students who come to China to study full-time in an immersion environment.

For specific exercises at each level, please refer to our proficiency levels.

Where can I take the class?

You can choose one or a combination of three methods: 'attend classes in our office,' 'online classes,' or 'self-study on our website with professional guidance from our teachers.'

Currently, we have three offices available for students to choose for attending classes in the Greater Toronto Area.

For online teaching, we primarily use Skype.

Our introduced method of 'self-study on our website with professional guidance from our teachers' can meet various scholars' different requirements in terms of study time, learning progress, and finances. Our teachers' professional guidance can help you save time, achieve continuous improvement, maintain motivation, and boost confidence.

How many people are in each class?

Whether it's in-person or online, in our Group Classes. There is a maximum of five students in each Group Class, you get more attention from the teacher and more opportunity to practice your Mandarin speaking. Each class lasts for one and a half hours.

For Semi-private classes, each class accommodates a maximum of two students, with each class lasting for one hour.

Private classes have only one student at a time, and the class schedule is more flexible, with each class also lasting for one hour.

What is the cost?
Group Class costs $268.00 per session,

with each session consisting of six lessons. If a student attends one class per week, it will take six weeks to complete one session. If a student attends two classes per week, it will take three weeks to finish one session.

Semi-private classes are priced at $448.00 per session,

with each session comprising ten lessons. Typically, it takes ten weeks, or two and a half months, to complete one session.

Private classes are priced at $598.00 per session,

with each session also containing ten lessons. Generally, it takes ten weeks, or two and a half months, to complete one session.

When does it start?

Currently, we have new classes starting every week. However, the locations, timings, levels, and learning focuses may vary.

Therefore, I would recommend a free consultation either at our office or online to discuss your skill level and language goals in greater detail. This will offer an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about our curriculum and also help us gain a better understanding of your specific needs.
