🏫About Hutong School (HTS)

Hutong School gathers people with a real interest in China. Although the Middle Kingdom is quickly changing into a critical hub of the modern world, traces of its ancient history still remain. Hutong School’s first branch was founded in Beijing in 2005. Beijing’s landscape is a typical illustration of the continuous interaction between the swell of the past and the waves of modernity. Skyscrapers made of glass border the traditional neighborhoods of those narrow lanes called “Hutong” (胡同). These “Hutong” are the source of traditional Chinese living.

Hutong School’s unique Chinese teaching method which separates spoken Chinese and character recognition, has been proven to expedite Mandarin Chinese language learning. While progressing quicker in spoken Chinese, students also lay better foundations for character memorisation by understanding the logic of Chinese characters’ construction.

Our Locations


 In 2005 Hutong School started out in a traditional courtyard in one of Beijing’s most authentic historic areas. To better cater towards the many expatriats who work and live in Beijing as well as for students, Hutong School Beijing is nowadays located in the heart of the central business district in Beijing.


Our Shanghai Branch features the best of both worlds; an authentic traditional location close to the hustle and bustle of a business district.
