Weekend Chinese Course
Start your weekend immersed in Mandarin
Learn Chinese on Saturday with our Weekend Chinese Course. Our course will focus on speaking, listening, and reading. Class size is small so students can have plenty of opportunities to practice Mandarin. The weekend course is 8 weeks long and meets for 3 hours per day on Saturdays from 9am-12pm. New group courses may require 3 students to commence.
This course is best for part-time students with a busy day schedule. Class time is designed to give students plenty of opportunities to practice Mandarin. Students will learn by having conversations and doing language learning activities. Our small class size allows every student to be an engaged and active participant.
For absolute beginners, we will start with Pinyin. Students will learn the sounds of Mandarin Chinese, and practice correct pronunciation of the language. For Beginner 1 students with more than 30 hours of Mandarin learning experience, you can start at a later lesson of Textbook 1. E.g. Lesson 4.
