Learning Chinese in Beijing

There are 2 options: Lessons with a one-to-one tutor (as this option is more flexible time-wise, it is more suitable if you want to learn Chinese simultanously with doing an internship - available at many locations), and lessons with a small group at a language school. With 50 language teachers and 30 classrooms at three locations, it is Beijing's largest private language school.

Language Training


One-to-one tutor:

We can book a professional language teacher for you, giving you one-to-one classes. There is total flexibility in terms of the weekly number of hours, and about the times of the lessons.
The costs are approximately 120 RMB (depending on the city and teacher) for a 2 hours' session, which will be done either at a public location (e.g. a café) or at your accommodation.
This option is only available of our internship program or other programs in China. You can book this option if you are planning to come to China just to learn Chinese, or in combination with your internship or Working Holiday in China. The language school can arrange a visa for any duration.

Language school - small group lessons:

The Chinese lessons take place at a prestigious language school in Beijing, which was established in 2005. With 50 language teachers and 30 classrooms at three sites, it is Beijing's largest private language school. There are group classes for all levels, as well as classes for Business Chinese and HSK preparation. The school also organizes cultural activities at no additional cost. The use of a gym and indoor swimming pool are included in the rates!
The group size is a maximum of 6 people, who have similar level of knowledge. An effective and fast learning progress is therefore guaranteed!
If you already have Chinese language skills, you can start the course every Monday and join a group with comparable level of knowledge. For beginners, the start date is every first Monday of the month.
After about 2 months, as a beginner, you have basic communication skills.
You can select from 20 or 30 lessons per week intensity. Each lesson is 45 minutes long.
In the case of 20 lessons of teaching intensity, lessons are Mondays to Fridays from 9.00 a.m. - 12.00 p.m. In the case of 30 hours intensity, there are also lessons from 2.00 p.m. - 3.35 p.m. In the mornings, the focus is on listening, reading, writing and speaking; afternoons are dedicated to intense listening skills.
With 20 lessons intensity, there are group lessons specifically for "Business Chinese" and with 30 hours, preparatory group lessons for the HSK test (Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì;汉语 水平 考试), which is required in order to study at a Chinese university.
In addition to the language lesson, once a week in the afternoons, at a small additional cost, there is a cultural activity or lecture, such as about Chinese history, about the current economy in China, Chinese humor, calligraphy, paper making and Taichi. The school organises trips and visits for the students - e.g. to art exhibitions.
Students can also use a modern and well-equipped gym and indoor pool at no additional cost.
The school has 3 locations in Beijing - Sanlitun, Maizidian and the Olympic Village; you can choose one closest to your accommodation.
Short-time participation of the course is possible on a tourist visa that you would have to arrange on your own (we will assist). If you book lessons for 3 months or longer, as a nationally recognized educational institution, the school can also organize an X2 student visa for you (the application cost is 650 RMB).
About 80% of students are from Europe, America and Australia/New Zealand and 20% from other Asian countries and Africa. The school educates embassy staff of many countries on behalf of the Chinese government. It also trains for Chinese language teachers.
