Learn Chinese In Singapore – Mandarin Language Courses


The duration of the language learning process is dependent on the level of Chinese proficiency you wish to achieve. Although many have said that Chinese characters are difficult to recognise and the language is challenging to learn, speaking conversational Mandarin might not be as difficult.

In fact, your conversational skills can be achieved in a few months!

However, if you wish to learn Chinese in Singapore for professional communication, it might require a few years to achieve sufficient proficiency.

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed thinking about the many things to learn. But you can be at ease knowing our business mandarin course will move at your pace and our teachers are always here for you.

Being able to converse in everyday topics without much interruptions is considered fluent at the basic level. HSK wise, reaching HSK4 is a good gauge of your Chinese language proficiency. If you are looking to master the language well, HSK6 is sufficient to communicate in academic, social and professional settings.

Just looking for a class to learn basic Mandarin/Chinese casually? We have a class for that too. Explore our Chinese courses for more information.

While it is possible to teach yourself Mandarin, conversational mandarin requires you to find opportunities to communicate with another person. This entails speaking and writing to someone in the language, gaining feedback and honing your Chinses proficiency. It is when you frequently communicate with another person that learning becomes easier and your skills improve.

It is also important to note that your learning may be impeded when you practice with someone who does not speak mandarin in the proper way. As such, we always encourage people to take on a conversational mandarin course with a certified Chinese teacher.

In our school, we implement a placement test to understand our students’ needs even before they begin their course. This is so that no student gets left behind and everyone is supported adequately during lessons.

Some tips and ideas to pick up the language more efficiently

  • Find a language partner to practise Mandarin with
  • Devote more time each day to learn Mandarin
  • Look out for patterns in the language instead of rules
  • Master the four different tones in the language
  • Read extremely widely (Chinese books)
  • Attend Chinese classes with other students at your proficiency level
  • Tune in to the Mandarin news on TV and listen to Chinese radio stations

While the two are common dialects of the Chinese language, Mandarin is more widely spoken around the world. Over the years, Cantonese has remained a dialect primarily spoken in Hong Kong. Additionally, Mandarin is easier to pick up than Cantonese. One of the reasons being that Mandarin only has 4 tones while Cantonese has up to 9 tones.

Whenever you are ready to learn mandarin in Singapore and register yourself in your first conversational Chinese course, we are here for you.

1. A balance between Daily Conversation and Written Chinese

During a Chinese class, learners should focus on communication through role-plays, real-world activities to achieve the goals in communicating freely in daily conversation while developing their reading and writing capabilities in a natural way. 

2. A balance of focus on Chinese vocabulary and Chinese culture

A good Chinese class provides ample opportunities for the course learners to experience the language and its culture develop intercultural awareness and enrich their personal experience.

3. A balance between Language Knowledge and Communication

The class should be designed to ensure that knowledge-based language learning is placed within a communicative context.
