After a number of months of remote teaching, we have reviewed the new COVID-19 guidelines and the preference of our students. Following a successful pilot, we have decided to launch a new Hybrid course format.  From September 2020 you can select Remote, Hybrid or Face-to-Face formats, depending on the course you want to register for.

The Hybrid course format efficiently combines Face-to-face and Remote teaching with flexibility for you. For Hybrid and Face-to-Face courses, all COVID-19 sector-guidelines will be fully adhered to. The maximum number of students for all 3 course types remains 8 . We will also continue our lenient opt-out policy, so you can respond to changing circumstances.

Kickstart School’s Communicating in Chinese Level III is a continuation of the Communicating in Chinese Level I and II courses. This course is also taught in English and is suitable for both Dutch nationals and expats. Integral aspects of this course include further enhancing cultural awareness and exploring more relevant grammar and vocabulary. This course will also focus on speaking and understanding Chinese, as well as recognising prevalent signs which help you to get by when travelling in China. The focus on writing in Chinese will increase at this level.
