Learn Mandarin Chinese with a program designed for your busy schedule. Evening classes for adults, hosted on Zoom (for the time being), mobile study tools, and excellent instructors, all make it easier for you to succeed!

Learn to Speak

Our approach is simple. We introduce the language incrementally so you learn steadily without being overwhelmed. You participate in activities that make the language easier to understand and harder to forget. More about our methods

Study Anywhere

Our mobile accessible materials allow you to keep learning between classes. Review lessons, listen to audio and take quizzes while riding the bus or lounging at home. The courseware is designed for people with busy schedules. More about our study tools.

Online Courses with Zoom

Due to the pandemic, we will be offering our courses online with Zoom. We’ve been using it for a couple months and it works well. Zoom is free and it runs in your browser. No setup required. If you don’t find a class that fits your schedule, consider a private Mandarin tutor.

Mandarin Courses Customized for English Speakers

Beginning One, Two & Three. These introductory classes will introduce you to Mandarin Chinese as it is spoken in Modern China. We start with the basics of pronunciation and sentence patterns. By the end of this series you will have solid foundation and basic conversational skills. These 3 courses use Pinyin only (the phonetic representation of the language) and leave Chinese characters for a future class.

Each “Beginning” course (One, Two and Three) includes …

  • Online course materials
  • Printed course materials
  • Teachers who leverage your talents
  • Online quizzes and flashcards
  • Presentation slides make it easier to grasp

Here is a description of each class in the series

  • Beginning One: In this course you will learn pronunciation, pinyin, basic grammar and something about Chinese culture. You will build a solid foundation for future study, while gaining practical language skills appropriate for everyday use in China and Taiwan. Check out a sample lesson from Beginning One.

  • Beginning Two: Having mastered pinyin and simple grammar, the next step is to become more comfortable with sentences. We will explore more interesting grammar patterns, expand the vocabulary and learn how to engage native speakers in conversation. Check out a sample lesson from Beginning Two.

  • Beginning Three: While continuing to build vocabulary, this class will focus on conversations that frequently occur frequently when traveling in China. You will gain more confidence in conversation and deepen your understanding of modern Chinese culture. Check out a sample lesson from Beginning Three.
