Sometimes you don’t want to have to spend the time learning Chinese characters; you won’t be writing any letters in Mandarin any time soon anyway!
So because we understand everyone has individual needs when it comes to languages, we developed a Focus on Speaking course, structured specifically around the speaking and listening aspects of the General Mandarin course. Pinyin (Mandarin written using the English alphabet), allows you to quickly understand pronunciation without the need to spend the large amount of hours required to learn to write. Our skilled and experienced teachers use a variety of methods to teach this, including role play to get you interacting with your classmates, as well as learning effectively and at speed.
Is this course right for me?
If you want to improve your spoken Mandarin rapidly, in a short space of time, then this is the course for you.
What does the course aim to teach me?
The course is designed to meet the basic requirements for daily social communication, and focuses on improving learners listening and speaking skills (including native-pronunciation).
What will I get out of this course?
You will have profoundly improved speaking and listening Mandarin skills, allowing you to converse easily in ‘everyday’ Mandarin, a better grasp on their grammar rules, and an improved awareness of Chinese culture. Plus we’ll ensure that you leave the course with the skill-set to continue your language studies outside of the school too.
