Learning to speak Chinese can help you do business and make connections at home and in Asia, and here in Vancouver, where Chinese is the second most common mother-tongue, it facilitates communication with neighbours, clients and colleagues alike.

Our Mandarin courses are offered at all levels and our instructors are experienced and professionally trained native speakers who will help you develop fluency in small, dynamic classes that use Pin-Yin (Chinese characters in the Latin alphabet) to help ease the learning process. Not sure which level is right for you? Read our overview of course language levels to find the level that suits your experience and skills.
