Learning to speak Mandarin, and appreciating Chinese culture, can not only help you do business in China and Asia, but can help facilitate business and trade here in Canada.
In Vancouver, Mandarin is the third most spoken language at home after English and Cantonese. Studying Mandarin can help you connect with family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and other people in your communities.
Conversational Mandarin courses: We offer beginner to advanced Mandarin courses taught by experienced, professionally trained native-speaking instructors. Rather than Chinese characters, instructors use Pin-Yin (Chinese characters in the Latin alphabet) for ease of learning. Build your confidence in your Mandarin conversation skills in small, dynamic classes using authentic and realistic scenarios. Between classes, you can practise using online resources chosen by your instructor to complement your in-class learning.
Reading and Writing Chinese Characters: Build your language fluency further with our online self-paced Chinese reading and writing courses. Learn up to 500 simplified characters (used in much of China), along with traditional characters (used in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau).
