We don't have any courses available at the moment, please come back later.

Please note that due to the current COVID-19 crisis all our courses are being taught online until further notice.

In order to be able to give more individual attention during the remote classes we are lowering the number of students to a maximum of 8.

We also have a more lenient opt-out policy so you can respond to changing circumstances.


Do you want to be able to speak Chinese in more everyday situations such as when shopping and using public transport?

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.
