Your Free Personal Assessment

To make sure you’re put in the most suitable class for your level, you will have a language assessment with us before starting your program with us. 

Complete beginners, don’t need to do the assessment but if you have learnt some Chinese before you’ll need to do the assessment. But don’t worry this isn’t like a real test, it’s just to help us get an accurate understanding of your Mandarin.

You will just have a brief conversation with our Director of Studies and they will ask you some questions in Mandarin.

We of course want to make sure you’re in the right class for you, so it’s very important to do the assessment. After all you wouldn’t want to be in a Chinese class that is too basic or too advanced for you. 

NOTE – If you are a complete beginner and have never studied any Mandarin before you’ll need to begin your course on one of our official starting dates. Those who have learnt some Mandarin before can start on any Monday throughout the year.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is better for me, group or individual classes?

It’s up to you, really. 

If you have a fair knowledge of Mandarin already we’d recommend going for individual Chinese classes in Singapore as the class can be more tailored towards your needs.

If you are a beginner, groups might be the best way to start off, but honestly, everyone is different. Talk to us and we can find the best solution for you.

What is a typical group lesson like?

You will cover speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

The week is divided up like this generally…

Mon-Wed-Fri – Speaking & Listening
Tues-Thur – Writing & Reading

What about my classmates, who will they be?

Your classmates could be anyone, we have as much idea as you do!

The beauty of our group classes is the chance of getting paired with someone from any where in the world, of any age and background.
