Chinese immersion

Explore modern China & learn Chinese

We’ll go through several modules, such as on buying a house, work culture, and dating. Each topic has its own knowledge goals and vocabulary.

We go beyond the traditional textbook-style learning of Chinese, while improving your conversational skills. You’ll be able to understand contemporary Chinese culture, social events, and mindsets — and be able to talk about them.

At the end of each module, you and your classmates will talk about the topic or prepare a document to share — such as your CV in Chinese.

They are real-life examples, instead of the academic textbook ones. Our curriculum designers edited these materials to make them applicable for language teaching.

Focussing on Chinese fluency

With our ‘UCC’ methodology (Understanding, Conversation, and Culture), we can guarantee you that more than 70% of the lesson time you will be thinking or speaking in Chinese. You will understand and memorize words, and you will also be making meaningful conversations or speeches.

Lessons in pairs or triples & small groups

Every week’s lesson starts with private lessons in pairs or triples, so you can get enough attention from your teacher when you are learning new knowledge. In the following two lessons, you will be joined by like-minded global citizens like you (4 to 6 students per group), so you can really practice what you have learned with peers!
