With this approach students can achieve their learning outcomes 3 times more efficiently than from a traditional Mandarin school. Learning with us does not stop with the classroom. In addition to a practice class with our professional Mandarin teachers, students can continue their Mandarin learning throughout the day without any extra cost. Students can watch our video lecture before class, prepare for their lessons with our website or App anytime, and review the contents anywhere.

New Concept Mandarin offers a wide range of Chinese lessons that are perfect for students of all skill levels.

While we provide general Mandarin courses for foreigners and local business professionals in Singapore, we are constantly approached by parents of International schools to help their children with their IB, IGCSE Chinese study. Over the past 10 years our trainers have gained rich experience in helping students with their IB and IGCSE Chinese study and test preparation. We offer face-to-face private tutorial in students’ homes. Group and private tutorials are also available in our training center in Singapore.

I have been taking HSK classes with New Concept Mandarin for almost 2 years. I passed HSK5 after intensive practice in all areas required to pass the exam. During that time, my Mandarin also improved tremendously, especially in the listening and writing areas. In addition, I was able to better appreciate certain aspects of Chinese culture and thinking. Given the excellent teaching, I have decided to prepare for HSK6 at the same school.

I was initially a bit apprehensive regarding the cost of the course, however New Concept Mandarin is the absolute best language course I’ve ever taken and you truly get what you pay for. The learning approach used by the instructors coupled with the web material blends things in such a way that it stays with me in a permanent way. For myself, I was unfortunately not able to attend most of the 2nd level course and could not progress to the 3rd level. NCM contacted me after 1 year and I re-enrolled in the 2nd level course. I was amazed how much I could remember after that 1 year as I picked up right where I left off! As a middle aged person in a country where it is difficult to practice Mandarin, I found this quite remarkable and a testament to the NCM program. My goal is eventual Chinese language certification and fluency and I feel NCM is essential to allowing me to reach it.

Attending class with New Concept Mandarin was an absolute joy. Classes were highly engaging and went beyond just learning the words or phrases, but expanded on the origins of the sayings and conventions used in order to give the right context and understanding. There was also a balance between reading and conversational exercises that ensured the lessons were holistic enough.
