1. Standard courses

 Chinese coursesAll Chinese courses are aimed at developing your speaking proficiency, listening and reading comprehension, successful writing skills. You develop your creativity by learning to draw Chinese characters and enjoy discovering Chinese grammar which is easier than that of many European languages and certainly practice the tones which make a single word acquire different meanings in accordance with their tonality.

While forming the groups we always take into account the initial language level of the students and choose the appropriate level of study:

  • Beginner level
  • Elementary level
  • Intermediate level and above

Each level is divided into 3-4 steps, so you can join a group that has already begun training at the 2nd - 4th step if your language level allows. That will give you the possibility to save money and time while learning the language.

The intensity of the course - 90 minute classes, 2 times per week.

The courses are based on the communicative method, which develops all key language skills. The number of students in each group range from 4-8 people to make learning more effective.
