Q: Why language AND culture?
A: Any language reflects the culture of the people who speak it. With the Chinese language this is perhaps more so than any other language, as the language and culture stretch back more than 4,000 years. So it both fascinating and useful to understand the cultural background, both ancient and modern, embedded in the Chinese language spoken today while you are learning Chinese.
Q: What’s the size of the vocabulary I’ll learn in this course?
A: In this course, you will learn around 2300 words and phrases, a similar number to that to someone at an HSK 5 level of Chinese .
Q: Can I start as a beginner?
A: Yes of course, or also if you already know some Chinese. Your teacher will check your Chinese level at the start of the course and agree with you at what level you should start and how much missing cultural background, if any, will need to be filled in.
Q: Is this more difficult than other courses?
A: No, not really, but it will take you longer because we take time to talk about and explain some of the relevant culture and se some famous stories to illustrate particular aspects. So maybe slower, but if you’re the sort of person who’s learning for a deeper understanding of Chinese society and people then this is the course for you!
To ensure that you learn effectively, this course uses:
• Course textbooks suitable for international Chinese education:
We use textbooks specially prepared for international students, which are in line with the learning characteristics of non-native Chinese students.
Note: These are not provided, but are easily available from most booksellers.
• Regular review of student’s progress, identification of individual problems:
No two students are the same. From the beginning of the course, the teacher will make sure that they understand the student’s expectations and identify the student's learning difficulties and weaknesses. During the course, the teacher will make sure that the student is able to overcome any difficulties and meet their expectations.
• Highly qualified teachers of Mandarin Chinese as a foreign language:
Our teachers all have a university diploma in teaching Chinese as a foreign language and practical teaching experience in teaching non-native Chinese students.
Mandarin requires correct pronunciation and intonation. Our teacher has a Mandarin Chinese certificate in adddition to their other qualifications, which guarantees that they will teach you the correct Chinese (Mandarin, the national standard) and pronounciation.
