▉Intensive Course

Our intensive classes help students quickly establish listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. This is done by offering small class sizes (5-8 people per class), 3 hours of daily, solid teaching, 15 hours of class each week, and 10-12 lessons in one term. Intensive courses are divided into 10 levels of Chinese language, from beginning to advanced. Students studying abroad and/or working are suitable for this course, and they quickly and intensively reach their ideal Chinese language level.


▉Regular Course

Our regular course is comprised of the main Chinese language class and an elective class. Each class is 6-12 people and is divided into 14 levels. The main class is 4 times a week (Monday-Thursday), 3 hours each day and covers 8 lessons per term. The elective class is 3 hours every Friday. The elective class is optional if you do not need a student visa, but students who hold a student visa are required to take an elective class. Students may choose from the following elective class topics: singing, traveling, TV dramas, film appreciation, or enhancing Chinese skills in listening, speaking, reading or writing.
