After a number of months of remote and hybrid teaching, we have reviewed the COVID-19 guidelines and the preference of our students and have decided to continue with our Hybrid course format as well as a number of remote courses in January 2021. The Hybrid course format efficiently combines Face-to-face (up to 4 students) and Remote teaching with flexibility for you.

In order to keep everybody safe, do not come to our school if you have any symptoms or have had a chance of exposure to Covid.

Would you like to follow a course aimed at being able to speak and read everyday Chinese? Which, together with course II b, prepares you well for the HSK2 exam? In that case this combination course suits you well.

Of course, there is plenty of time for writing simple characters and for getting acquainted with Chinese culture. You will work on improving both your listening and speaking skills. On KickstartNet, our learning platform, you can also practice a lot at home. Having short conversations is part of the lessons.

With the HSK2 exam on your CV you will show that you already have a basic knowledge of Chinese, which can help you when working with Chinese business partners or to study or work in China. If you do not wish to take the exam, this is not a problem. Working with HSK practice material ensures that you are very active with the language.

The language spoken in class is English, which makes the course suitable for both Dutch and Expats. This course is also ideal for young adults. Besides the fact that you are working towards an exam, the course is mainly aimed at increasing your communication skills.
