Evening classes run for two hours on the same evening for a ten week term. No assessment is carried out but students are encouraged to test their developing skills by sitting the globally run HSK test.

Excellence in teaching is paramount. Our teachers are seconded from Fudan University which regularly send us experienced senior teachers and a number of Masters candidates in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages. You can see the profiles of our current and previous teachers by clicking here.

Our classes are geared for adult learners at age of 16 and over.  For younger learners please enquire about private classes.
