The way the media sees us
We believe in experiential learning for our Putonghua course, whether done online or in person. We utilize multi-media tools in order to stimulate all human senses. It helps learners achieve faster learning results. Our teaching activities are designed around the following basic fundamental beliefs;
- To learn a new language is to experience a new way of life;
- To teach language is to help people develop a new way of being in the world;
- Language is a skill and a medium to communicate with;
- Learning and using language involves the whole body.
We INTEGRATE all the language skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing into our Putonghua courses, and make use of an individual’s personal resources and sense of perception. We teach the whole class to learn Chinese and want our students to experience the language.
Our teaching method aims to provide:
- Comprehensive language skills;
- A learning environment which leads to rapid language acquisition;
- A stimulating and enjoyable learning experience.
