Summer Online Chinese Courses
I. Program Features
The online program breaks geographical restrictions and provides you with the opportunity to learn Chinese for free if you cannot travel to China.
We are the only language program in China accredited by Eaquals, which guarantees consistency and quality in our teaching methods.
Our classrooms are small, guaranteeing that teachers will have enough time to give each student the best possible learning experience.
Courses are designed to improve students’ communication skills. Students will be able to do a lot of oral practice, using topical classroom discussions and other practical language events.
We integrate Chinese learning with forms of cultural expeditions and activities. These activities aim to deepen students’ understanding of Mandarin Chinese.
All Learning materials, as well as the assignments, will be uploaded to the learning management platform. Students both in online and offline courses can review the course at any time, including the additional online course materials like keywords, language points, recorded videos, dialogue videos, audios, course summary, etc.
