We encourage weekly minimum 3 classroom hours if it is not more, which is the standard hours required by “Easy Steps to Chinese”, the main curriculum we use to teach. Hence, most students will be able to complete one book within one academic year.

Student’s age and his/her Mandarin academic level are the two factors taken into consideration for his/her class grouping. For students who have previous learning experience, there will be an entry test at the time of admission, which includes listening, speaking, reading and writing, the four pillars of language development.
