Class schedules:

Class schedules are highly flexible depending on the needs of the students. You need to order and pay for their classes in advance. Once ordered you can then arrange the class times with your teacher. The available teaching time is between 8:30 am and 10 pm Beijing time. The last class will start at 9 pm Beijing time. You need to book your classes at least 3 days in advance to allow the teacher time to prepare for the lesson. If you need to cancel a class you need to do so at least 24 hours before the class otherwise you will still be charged for the class.

Teaching Methodology:

1) Student-centered learning. You will work with the instructors to set a language learning goal for the period of instruction. We design a unique set of learning materials for you in order to best address your individual goals and needs.

2) Innovative teaching methods. We employ effective, classroom-tested Chinese teaching methodologies in our classes. However, we are constantly searching for even more ways to improve our instruction.

3) Emphasis on practicality. We place a high priority on your ability to immediately use and apply what is learned in the classroom.

4) Mastery of the fundamental elements. We use fun and engaging exercises to help you master the most frequently used vocabulary and grammar points.

5) Effective trouble-shooting. We systematically target problem areas for you and provide consistent, gentle correction.

6) Confidence building. Classes are designed to maximize the amount of time you spend speaking and using Chinese. Only in an intensive one-on-one setting can the instructor give you the individual attention they need.
