Our popular Zoom Chinese classes have gained many positive reviews since the pandemic started this year.
Check out the reasons why you should consider us for your Chinese studies.

All of our Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese) classes are held once per week for 10 weeks.
Our students will complete one Level of classes per Term.
We have a total of 4 Terms per year which means you can study up to 4 Levels in one year!
Each class is 2-hours - giving a total of 20 hours per Term (except for Level 1 Beginners classes which are of 11/2 hours duration).
We conduct Beginner classes in both Mandarin and Cantonese at the start of every Term, so you do not have to wait until the start of each calendar year to commence classes with us.
A key advantage of learning Chinese with us is the flexibility of us running concurrent classes in Hobart. This means, for example, if you are attending our Beginners Mandarin class on a Wednesday evening, you are welcome to also attend the same Level class some other time in that week. This is great flexibility since you are not tied to a certain time or day for your classes then. Alternatively, if you feel that you need to repeat a certain lesson for whatever reason, you are welcome to do so.
Did you know that we also offer private Chinese classses for companies or private tuition for individuals? Private Skype lessons are also available! We offer a variety of customised courses in both Mandarin and Cantonese. For more details.
Why Learn Chinese?
If you are up on the world economy, then you will know that China is the fastest growing economy in the world. In fact, the Chinese language is becoming so commonly used in business. Looking up ahead in to the future, it is estimated that a command of the Chinese language will be ahead of the demand for Spanish. Half of Asia already speaks some form of Chinese, or incorporates styles of Chinese into their native language.
With our increasing love for the Chinese culture, like the martial arts, or media (who can forget Jacki Chan or Bruce Lee), or even Chinese food, we are quickly merging cultures together today then we ever did in past. Great inspirations have come out of the Eastern ways of life, and in a hungry way to consume them, and learn all about them, the need to learn Chinese has surfaced.
The Chinese culture itself, represents a solidarity in balance, peacefulness, and serenity. It is through understanding, learning and appreciation of other cultures in which we often find what we seek. To learn Chinese, whether it be the arts, the words, the ways, is often found tools to enrich our own daily lives and restore balance. Once again, by doing so, we are merging another culture's layers and sewn them in as our own. The influence of the Chinese culture is undeniable.
Why learn Chinese? Because you truly want to. You have the focus and goal to integrate the cultural know how for goals of your own. Perhaps for an upcoming trip to China, or a hobby, or maybe just for simple understanding of a new friend, whatever the reason behind the spark, know it will be more than beneficial for you to acquire this knowledge and skill. And exhilarating to learn. There is a sense of accomplishment behind learning Chinese, even if it's not for a job in China, or you cannot take a vacation there, having the richness of absorbing another's culture into your world view is a step to a better and higher understanding of life itself.
Learn Chinese for knowledge, for wisdom and balance in your life. Learn Chinese to be ahead of everyone else in business and careers. Learn Chinese to step into the future now. Learn Chinese for your upcoming vacation to China. But mostly, learn Chinese for yourself. Because it is something you always wanted to do. The impact of Eastern culture is growing everyday, and will continue as our ways and cultures merge.
I have recently joined your classes in Mandarin. At the time I did not know your accelerated principles, but having enjoyed every class and experienced the technique, I am to commend you. I had attended other language learning schools and find yours fun, enjoyable to the extent of finding myself eager for the next class, and on top of this I am learning Mandarin with greater depth and understanding. At this point I would like to complement Ling-Sea whom I find has a very refreshing teaching style, and allows learning Mandarin to be enjoyable.
