Language Courses

backMandarinclick Language Program

A huge population, a fast-growing economy, an increasingly important position in world politics, a fascinating culture: these are all reasons for Mandarin topping the list of most popular languages, with more than 830 million speakers worldwide. As an ambassador of Chinese culture and language, Mandarinclick offers custom-made Mandarin courses for foreign speakers. 

We integrate Chinese learning methods and teaching resources to effectively meet the needs of people of various age groups, nationalities, language levels, and education backgrounds. The courses are both offered to those who live in China already, and to those who plan their trip while being abroad. In the case of the latter, Mandarinclick’s international staff can provide practical solutions surrounding issues such as visa consultancy, housing, and airport pickups.

All language courses provided by Mandarinclick are combined with company-visits, networking events and cultural seminars (if one wants to do an internship during the language course, please ask for information via info@mandarinclick.com). Classes are taught in small groups (a maximum of 6 students per class), with abundant time for individual attention. All our teachers are certified, and master both Mandarin and English. To make most of your time in Beijing, students can be provided with a ‘buddy’: someone that knows his/her way around Beijing and is available 24/7.

Our Courses

Regular Courses (Basic/Intensive)

Basic Course: 15 hours per week

Intensive course: 20 hours per week

The regular course covers all aspects of the Chinese language: reading, listening, speaking and writing. At the beginning of the course, all students will complete a placement test: a test that will establish the language proficiency of the student. Additionally, progress tests will be provided throughout the course, to see when a student can move up to the next level.

Course levels

Level 1: Students who have never learnt Chinese before

Level 2: Students who have a basic understanding of Chinese sentence structures and possess a vocabulary of approximately 800 words.

Level 3: Students who have mastered basic listening and speaking skills, understand general and complex sentence structures, and have a vocabulary of approximately 1500 words.

Level 4: Students who have mastered intermediate listening and speaking skills, possess general knowledge of Chinese grammar, and have a vocabulary of approximately 2500 words.

Level 5: Students who have good listening and speaking skills, possess sophisticated knowledge of Chinese grammar, and have a vocabulary of approximately 3500 words.

Business Courses

Basic Course: 15 hours per week

Intensive course: 20 hours per week

The business course covers the same levels as the regular course, starting from level 3. The course is provided in the context of Chinese business language and is designed for people working in China and people who plan to have a career in China. Students will not only be familiarized with business vocabulary, negotiation strategies and business correspondence skills, but will also receive extensive information about the Chinese market and business culture.

HSK courses

Basic Course: 15 hours per week

Intensive course: 20 hours per week

The HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) exam is the official Chinese language proficiency test recognized internationally as a proof of Chinese language proficiency. Not only is this test necessary for admission to a Chinese University, but also a  proof  of language proficiency for (future) employers. The course provided by Mandarinclick is designed to help students refine their Chinese skills and achieve a supreme score on the HSK. The course closely follows the structure of the HSK. Prior to the class, a placement test will be conducted for each student to see which of the six levels is appropriate. Participation in the official HSK exam (or the participation in several HSK-exams) at one of Mandarinclick’s partnering Universities is included in the course package.
