Before you come to Taichung to learn Chinese, we will do a personal assessment of your current Mandarin ability.

This is done so we can understand your level, as well as your personal goals so we can place you in the right class with the right teacher. We pride ourselves on finding the right class, and the right teacher for each of our students. The assessment will be done through Whatsapp, Skype or a phone call. Remember our assessment is not a test.

Do I get time to speak in class?

Yes, everyone gets the chance to speak and practice their Chinese in class.

This is precisely why we keep the class size small, to give you enough opportunities to speak and practice your Chinese.

We know the importance of getting every student speaking in Mandarin as soon as possible, you are learning Chinese in a local environment so you need to make the most out of this opportunity.

Can I add individual classes to my group classes?

You sure can.

Our Intensive/Small Group Chinese language course is four hours of group study a day, and two hours of individual Chinese.

Check the pricing tables above to find out more

Where will my classmates be from?

Your classmates will come from all over the world.

You’ll likely meet students from Italy, America, Brazil and pretty much any other country you can think of!

How much Chinese can I realistically learn?

While language progress of course differs for each person, we are very proud of the speed that we get our students ahead.

For the small group course a complete beginner usually knows survival Chinese to get around within two to four weeks (HSK1), can have basic conversations after two months (HSK2).

Getting into more complex conversations can take five to seven (HSK 4), with the potential of fluency within a year (HSK 5 to 6).

Staying with a homestay is a surefire way to make speedy progress.

Do you teach Chinese characters?

Yes, of course, this is essential.

As the classes are in Taiwan, we are teaching traditional as well as simplified characters, but our group classes teach just Traditional.

The main focus of the class is still speaking and listening.

For lessons in Simplified Chinese please check out our 1-on-1 classes.

How well qualified are your teachers?

Our teachers are the most important cog in the company.

All of our teachers are university educated, and hold teaching certificates.

We also only hire already experienced teachers.

Our hiring process for teachers is meticulous, and it shows in the classes you receive.

What do you focus on in class?

The classes consist of all aspects of language learning, speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

However, the classes are mainly focused on oral, which takes up about 70% of the class, and 30% is dedicated to reading and writing.
