HSK Courses

Learn and consolidate your knowledge

It's time to prepare for your Mandarin Exam!

Learn effectively with us

The prerequisite for diligent training is a standard pronunciation of Mandarin.
Do not rush to practice repeatedly before you have learned how to pronounce it well, or you will consolidate your mistakes
and will need to spend much time correcting them.

一 : Practical Materials

Learn practical Mandarin phonetics,
vocabulary and grammar in a focused
manner to avoid inefficient learning and

二 : Interactive demonstration and imitation

The huge inertia of the native dialect makes it almost impossible for adults to correct their own pronunciation.
Therefore interactive counselling
by professional teachers can help you learn efficiently.

三 : Systematic practice

All skills require diligent training.
