Breaking Down Barriers: Movies and TV Shows in Chinese Language Learning

Breaking Down Barriers: Movies and TV Shows in Chinese Language Learning

Movies and TV shows play a crucial role in enhancing language skills and providing a deeper understanding of the Chinese culture. They provide an immersive and enjoyable learning experience, enhancing listening skills, expanding vocabulary, deepening cultural understanding, and improving pronunciation.



What are your Mandarin classes like? What's the schedule?

For both group and private classes, one class lasts 50 minutes. Most of our students take more than one class per day, so there's always a 10-minute break between classes - it proves to be helpful to process what you've just learned.

Part-Time Group courses include 4 classes per week.

Intensive Group Courses include 15 classes per week.

Class schedule for Private classes is flexible.

The class content is based on the course you've chosen, and the classes can vary slightly based on the teacher's personal style - but an average class usually includes a review of previously learned content, an engaging and student-centered input of new words & grammar, a reading/viewing section (of a related article or a video), and practice, practice, practice - which will help you convert the newly learned content into your active vocabulary.

Most importantly, you will be encouraged to speak Chinese as much as possible, and the classes will be held in Chinese. For more details, read the next 2 questions.

What are your teachers like? Are they native speakers?

We have high requirements for our teachers, and only hire 5% of applicants. All our teachers are native Chinese speakers and are university graduates with majors in Chinese language education or Chinese literature.

They have also previously obtained a Teaching Chinese as a Second Language (TCSL, or TCSOL) certificate before they joined us and successfully completed That’s Mandarin’s mandatory Teachers Training Course (TTC).

Will the classes be taught in English?

All of our classes are taught in Chinese to give students a fully immersive Chinese experience. Even for absolute beginners, our teachers will only use limited English to help you understand them. Our teacher will use pictures, videos, signs, and gestures to help you learn.

As your Chinese level progresses, less and less English will be used in your classes and you will be able to understand more and more Chinese every day.

What materials are used during classes?

We use our own in-house learning platform NihaoCafe for both online and offline Chinese classes.

For HSK 1-3, the standard course is built around a TV series we filmed featuring 64 episodes, and the story set in modern China with over 70 characters in 45 locations. Students can watch the videos, read interactive dialogues, learn new words & grammar, and practice with exercises on the platform.

For HSK 4, more advanced learners can read articles on various topics: Chinese culture, modern China, China’s economy & job market, dialogues from daily life, and many more. This level has the same set of interactive exercises as the previous levels.

For HSK 5-6, our teachers customize the lessons completely based on student’s learning style and goals. They choose from an extensive pool of materials such as articles, videos, comic books, translation classes, HSK papers, and more.

Custom materials are available to students of all levels if they wish to customize their private classes.

Can I customize my classes?

Of course! Based on your learning goals, you can choose to focus on specific language skills — for example, Listening and Speaking over Writing and Reading. If your goals include preparing for and passing the HSK, you might also want to focus on learning more about the Chinese grammar and sentence structures.

If you're interested in learning Chinese characters, you can add our special Hanzi course to your curriculum.

If you'd like to work on your Chinese pronunciation, you can also add our brand new Pinyin course to your schedule — which is available to all levels from Beginner to Advanced, by the way.

If you are interested in a specific field, you might choose a specialized course such as Chinese for Business, Diplomatic, Medical purposes etc.

What will my classmates be like? Where are they from?

Our students come from all over the world and from all walks of life! We’ve had students ranging from 5 to 60 years old as we offer a variety of courses for different age groups and different professions.

Can I take the HSK exam at That’s Mandarin?

Yes, you can register for the HSK exam at our school. We also offer HSK preparation courses which are extremely popular with students looking to get into Chinese universities or those who are applying for a job and a job permit in China.

Is it posible for me to have classes at my office?

Yes. Please contact our staff for more details.
