Mandarin for Adult courses are offered four times a year,each course is 10 weeks in length. All instructors are fully qualified and experienced.

The eight levels of adult Mandarin courses are designed to help students progress from an introduction to pinyin to advanced daily conversation. Although functional conversation is the focus of this multi-level course, attention to grammar, reading, writing and listening are also emphasized. 

Repeating the same level sometimes helps to give students more confidence and practice before moving to a higher level. From Level 6 upwards, the course materials vary from session to session in order to cover a wider range of sentence structures and topics.

 *A 15% discount will be applied to registrations for those who have completed three or more Adult Mandarin courses.
