Cheap Options to Take Mandarin Chinese Lessons

Customize your Chinese learning program

1- Small Groups or 1 to 1 Chinese Lessons in China

1-1   Group Lessons or Face to Face 1 to 1

>> How to choose between Group and 1 to 1 private lessons?

There are two main differences between 1 to 1 and small group lessons: the price, and the amount of practice you have access to. In 1 to 1 Chinese classes, you can talk and practice more than half of the time. In group classes, it is difficult to talk more than 10% of class time, even in small groups. As a result, the choice mainly depends on what kind of things you are willing to learn.

1-2   Learn Chinese online

>> Get a professional Chinese teacher on Skype!

Our online students are from everywhere. All you need to attend your Chinese lesson is a computer, a headset and a reliable internet connection. You can follow our standard modern Mandarin course focusing in the first instance on speaking & understanding, or ask us to help you design a customized training program if you have specific needs.

1 to 1

  • The best way to learn Chinese. Lessons are exactly adjusted to your needs and you progress at your own speed

Group Lessons

  • Well adapted to beginners and lower budgets, groups allow you to meet people and share with other students of similar level

Learn Online

  • Same quality as face to face lessons in China, get the best teachers for 2 to 3 times cheaper than in most of western capital cities

2- Choose a schedule option

We propose 2 options

  • REGULAR – Cheaper prices : the overall validity period of your package exactly matches the time you need to complete the volume of hours you purchased, considering the weekly schedule you booked. This option particularly fits those who will not need to cancel many classes
  • FLEXIBLE – The most chosen : the overall validity period of your package corresponds to the necessary time to complete the volume of hours you purchased, based on the weekly schedule you booked, plus 50% extra time. This is the most chosen option among professionals

With both schedule options, you can cancel your class up to 8PM the day before without any fee The only difference is about the overall validity period – the less you plan to cancel, the cheaper the tuition fee!

Cancellation & Validity period

  • If you choose a Regular schedule option and have to cancel few times, you can in most of situations find other time slots outside of your booked schedule where your teacher will be available to catch up with lessons.
  • If you choose a Flexible option, there is usually no need to catch up cancelled classes since the validity period is longer than necessary. But you can also book classes outside of your normal schedule if necessary, when your teacher and you are free.

3- How many hours you want to purchase

We recommend 3 hours of Chinese lessons per week

3 hours of Chinese lessons per week divided in at least 2 classes of 1.5 hour is the minimum we recommend to students who really want to learn Chinese and progress fast. Moreover, based on our experience, for those who can do more, 4.5 hours per week split into 3 classes seems to be the ideal solution. In the opposite, 1 class per week no matter the duration is usually not enough.
