The Language Tree specialises in Teaching Mandarin as a Second Language and our programmes are communication focussed and interactive.
Our trainers are qualified and trained native speakers who teach Standard Mandarin (Putonghua)using syllabus from China. Our materials from China were developed in Beijing and cater specially for those learning Mandarin as a Foreign Language. As such it has been extremely effective in developing the communication skill-set amongst non-native Chinese speakers in a very short period of time.
We run separate programmes for adults and children as our content is age relevant.
Our focus is on practical usage of the language and we are not exam oriented. However, we do believe in measuring our students’ proficiency and letting them know where they are.
Once they are more proficient we prepare them for external exams like YCT (Youth Chinese Test) for children or HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) for teenagers and adults, which is the Chinese proficiency tests for foreigners designed by Han Ban, the Chinese Language governing body in China. We are an authorized exam centre.
At The Language Tree, we aim to equip you to be able to understand the people, their customs, mindset, and their habits so you can build your personal or corporate network in China.
This is achieved through a firm grasp of the language wherein elements of Chinese customs, arts and culture will be introduced via the course materials and in-class interaction with our graduate trainers.
We help you build bridges, connect with people, and grow relationships through the use of Standard Mandarin (Putonghua).
For those who have learnt it in Chinese school (first language learners), we internationalise your Mandarin for practical usage in the workforce.
With this skill-set, you may step out with confidence to discover the opportunities that await you in the fastest growing economy in the world.
