Language Classes

You will work closely with a trained teacher to progress quickly through your introduction to Mandarin. With a maximum of 4 students in your group, you will have lots of opportunities to engage with your teacher and peers to grow your skills. 2 hours each day (M-F) will help you get on your path to fluency.

1-on-1 Practice

You will meet with a tutor three times a week to practice conversation and speaking skills. You’ll be able to go over topics you’ve already learned in class, or branch out into topics of your own interest. 30 minutes – Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Cultural Immersion

Your instructor will introduce you to exciting cultural activities that give you a living context for the language. You’ll be amazed by the beauty and diversity of China as you learn about tourism, cooking, singing, paper-cutting, Chinese knots for festivals and more. 45 minutes – Tuesday and Friday.
