Standard Group Courses in General Mandarin Chinese

Listen & Learn's general Mandarin Chinese courses for groups are a great option for groups of 2-12 colleagues or friends who are at the same level in studying Mandarin Chinese. Your group should have similar learning goals and be available to study at the same time and location every week. The courses are tailored to suit the group's level, no matter how elementary or advanced. General courses aim to give students knowledge of common Mandarin Chinese that would be used in real scenarios. Your teacher will cover a lot of grammar and vocabulary, as well as give you ample opportunities to practise your reading, listening, and speaking skills. General group Mandarin Chinese courses are great for groups who would like to begin learning Mandarin Chinese, or improve on existing skills and knowledge.

Mandarin Chinese Testimonials

"China has always fascinated me, and I'm going to be travelling around Asia in 6 months' time, so I wanted to be able to speak the basics. It was really hard at first, but my teacher was friendly and didn't rush me. I learned what I needed to learn - thanks Listen & Learn!"
