Intensive Chinese courses.

More than 10 years has been devoted to the development and improvement of training programs for schools Mandarin House. This led to extraordinary results: thanks to balanced, effective courses, the focus of training for real-world applications and real cases, Chinese is being studied quickly and interestingly, and practically from the first lessons, students start to speak a foreign language. Instead of a banal memorization of words and on-duty phrases, students sort out the dialogues and conversations that constantly occur in life, in everyday conditions. For example, the subject "The beginning of the conversation. The view "is built in the form of a dialogue:" Hello, how are you? My name is ... I'm British, and you? What is your name? Where did you come from? "And so on. The English-language dialogue is divided into semantic and grammatical parts, immediately translated into Chinese, taking into account grammatical and speech features. Thus, the pupils learn from the first lessons to feel the differences between languages, to feel the peculiarities and subtleties of the Chinese language, to learn the language in reference to reality, and the words are memorized in close connection with the contextual meaning.

Students who are already familiar with the Chinese language can join the training every Monday. Start dates for absolute beginners from our operator.
