Intensive Chinese Program

Group Lessons

This program is perfect for short-term intensive study with a long-term goal. Students will learn in a personalized small class environment. Students not only will learn the Chinese language, but most importantly, also learn the Chinese cultures and traditions. The program is designed for English-Speaking students, and taught in English. The classes are conducted on a year-around basis. You can see our customized sample chapter in the Downloads page.

Our program has many different levels. The first few levels will mainly focus on different topics in the daily life, with the learning of the Chinese phonics - Pinyin. After passing these basic levels, students are expected to learn the basic elements of speaking Chinese. In the intermediate levels, students will focus more on the conversational skills and learn the basic Chinese grammar. Students will have more opportunities to use their basic Chinese skills by putting into the daily life scenarios. In the advanced levels, students will start to learn about reading Chinese, and focus on the advanced conversational skills. In both intermediate and advanced levels, students are expected to learn to write some Chinese characters.

Most importantly, our students will have fun learning Chinese. They will learn through practice, practice and practice!

The following sessions are basic levels. They will cover a total of fourteen topics, in addition to the basics of Pinyin. Level 1 will cover Lesson 1 through Lesson 7 and part of Pinyin. Level 2 will cover Lesson 8 through Lesson 14 and finish the rest of Pinyin.
