Chinese Using Accelerated Learning Techniques

What is it? What does this mean? This means that lessons are taught in interesting and fun ways with music to encourage the students' right side of the brain to work with the left. It means that students use their intellect and their feelings to learn by using their conscious and subconscious minds as a team. The learning conditions are relaxing, where the teacher dramatises the lesson with a story written in English specially to link a cluster of elementary characters together to aid students' memory. This is followed by students conversing in dialogues which are based on vocabulary acquired in the first part of the lesson.

Our History

The Centre was started in 1992 by Dr Moni Lai Storz (who was then a senior lecturer at Monash University) to bring the learning of the Chinese language, Mandarin, to the Melbourne community using the revolutionary techniques of Accelerated Learning. Together with a scholar from PRC China, Mr Jian-guo Luo, Moni developed a series of 'Chinese using Accelerated Learning Techniques' (CUALT) modules. Together in 1992, they held their first ever experimental CUALT class at Ross House, Melbourne, for a group of 29 students.
This first class turned out to be a huge success where students found themselves learning Chinese Mandarin with complete ease and was having a good time too! The AustralAsian Centre of Chinese Studies was born.
Since then, thousands of students have studied Chinese with us over these past few years in Australia and England. Hundreds of businesses such as Telstra, ANZ Bank, Crown Casino, Cadbury Schweppes have had their executives trained with us for Chinese Mandarin. Find out who else have studied Chinese with us here.
