Frequently Asked Questions

Why are individual classes more expensive than group classes?

Because you progress faster, it’s that simple.

There is no substitute for tailored Mandarin progress. If you have just 4 weeks to cram in and learn as much as possible, individual classes always win.

How many teachers will I have?

This will depend on your ability at present, and teachers availability.

You could have a single teacher, or you might have three. Either way, we’ll make sure it fits your program perfectly.

What's best, 4 or 6 hours per day?

It will depend per person but of course we recommend as much as possible.

That said, learning Chinese isn’t only done in the classroom. What will define your success is what progress you make outside the classroom.

Can I really learn anything I want?

What you want to learn we will teach you. It’s that simple.

This is the beauty of our individual courses. With group classes in Singapore, you will follow the schedule of the class, which, although is still great, doesn’t give you the chance to personalise the class.

How can I get signed up?

Can I combine classes in Singapore with Beijing or Shanghai for example?

Absolutely, we’d love to host you over as many cities as you wish!

In total we offer Chinese classes across 8 cities now so you have plenty of options. We have a calculator where you can check out the cities, and the costs involved.
