Course Content

Survival Chinese
Is a highly practical section of the course focused on helping you become confident in using Mandarin in daily life. The Survival Course generally spans 15 classes or more and will cover common vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation required for daily living.

Communication & Soft Skills
Effective communication is critical to mastering any language. We will focus on spoken communication beyond vocabulary and grammar, to effective articulation, etiquette, and culture.

Career Chinese
If you have work ambitions with China, we will help you get there by teaching professional Chinese for work contexts. We will teach you vocabulary from the business domain (or your own relevant domain e.g. law, education), explain professional concepts and help you understand the relevant historical and cultural backgrounds.

Personalised Lessons
We customise our lessons to your learning goals. Whether you want to prepare for an interview, give a speech, or write a report for your professor, we are here to help you. We believe in the learning principle of “directness” - making learning closely resemble the final context you will use the language in. Thus, we adapt our lessons to your immediate objectives to help you apply your learnings into practice.

"Experience Chinese" Accelerated Methodology

Fourteen years of teaching and research into linguistics and memory science enabled us to develop the “Experience Chinese” methodology, which increases a Chinese learner’s speed by 200 - 300%. Our methodology focuses on full-immersion learning, conversational fluency, cross-cultural communication, spaced repetition and active recall.

Full Immersion Learning

Research shows the fastest way to learn a language is through full immersion and teaching the language in a way it will eventually be used. We forgo textbooks and instead focus on real speaking and responding in Mandarin.

100% Personalised to You

Not every Chinese learner is learning for the same reason and at the same level of ability. Our 1-to-1 classes are 100% personalised to your individual abilities and learning goals.

Learning Science Based

Our learning approach, “Experience Chinese”, is based on decades of research into learning and memory science, and our own experiences teaching over 210 000 hours of lessons over 14 years.
