Chinese language courses
All of our courses are 10 weeks in duration, with our next terms teaching commencing in April 2021, and are suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced learners. As our campus is currently closed, this term's language courses will all be taught online using Zoom. If you have any questions regarding this please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Within each level, further division is made to accommodate the proficiency of our learners. Please take a look at our range of courses and decide which one is right for you.
