Courses and Calendars

Successful Mandarin learning compose of motivated learners and experienced and patient native instructors. With relevant academic and cultural training, we establish a relaxed yet rigorous learning environment suited to the needs of all level learners.

In face, learning experiences with all three models of the instructor-led online course, on-demand LMS online and offline is the most important. We believe a great attitude of learning and know-how methodology are a must to get started. You can find some of these discussions at our resources page here.
