What is the course schedule?
You will have classes from Monday to Friday in the mornings from 9 am to 11:50 am. You will have 3 lessons in total with a duration of 50 minutes each with a 10-mins break in between.
Who are the teachers?
Our teachers are all native Chinese speakers who are highly-qualified and experienced in teaching Chinese to foreigners. Our teachers are university graduates with majors in Chinese language education or Chinese literature. They have also previously obtained a “teaching Mandarin as a second language” certificate before they joined us and successfully completed That’s Mandarin’s mandatory Teachers Training Course (TTC).
What teaching materials do you use?
We developed our own teaching and learning methods. We use our own Chinese learning platform for all our classes. There you can find all the materials, read the teacher’s comments, review your lessons, and even schedule your classes.
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. Our teacher will use pictures, videos, signs, and gestures to help students remember and understand new material.
Do you provide accommodation?
Yes. We can help you to arrange your accommodation in China. The accommodation options are different for different campuses. Please contact us directly to get more information.
Isn’t learning Chinese for 3 hours per day too much?
Absolutely not. This way you will be able to absorb more information than if you learn Chinese only for an hour or two per day. Besides, there’re 2 break times in between so that you can relax and get along with other students.
What will be my progress after this intensive Chinese program?
The results will be pretty impressive. You will complete 1 TM level in 4 weeks. Our level system is simple: TM1 = HSK1, TM2 = HSK2, TM3+4 = HSK 3, TM5+6+7+8 = HSK 4, TM Advanced Level = HSK5&6 (the content is customized).
