Learning Chinese in Singapore with Oxford Language Academy

Overview of Chinese Courses

Oxford Language Academy offers a variety of Chinese Courses that are sure to meet your requirements in learning Chinese. These include part-time group or private conversational Chinese language classes for adults, Chinese language training for businesses and corporations and preparatory courses for the Chinese Proficiency Test.

Out of the thousands of languages that exist in the world, Chinese is the most widely spoken. To put that into perspective, about one in five of the world’s population speaks some form of Chinese. People in different parts of China speak different forms of the Chinese language. As such, it was difficult for citizens from various provinces to communicate with each other. Hence, Mandarin Chinese, or Pǔtōnghuà (普通话), was adopted as a “common” language for the people of China to communicate with one another. In present times, it is the official language of the People’s Republic of China and by far the most widely used version. In Singapore and Malaysia, Mandarin Chinese is commonly referred to as Chinese or huayǔ (华语) and in Taiwan, it is referred to as Guóyǔ (国语).

Being a tonal language, the tone in which a Chinese word is spoken affects the entire meaning of the word. For example, if someone says Tóu (头) with a rising tone, it means head. However, if you say it with a high tone Tōu (偷), it means to steal. Hence, it is understandable that some might find learning Chinese a bit of a challenge. However, with a well-structured curriculum and experienced teachers, students can be rest assured that learning Chinese with Oxford Language Academy can be easy.

Conversational Chinese

The first step to learning a language, is learning how to speak it.  Being able to speak a language is in itself difficult, as not only do you need to know the right words to say, but you also need to be able to understand the message that the other person is trying to convey, in order to be able to carry out a conversation.

Chinese Proficiency Test

Individuals interested in getting an accrediation for their Chinese language proficiency should consider taking the Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK). Oxford Language Academy offers students taking the HSK examination, a preparatory course to help them in their studies for this examination.

Currently, such courses are only available in an individual setting.

Corporate Language Training

Many businesses fail to realise the benefits of developing the language ability of their workforce. In this linguistically diversified world, businesses that are able to speak the language of their clients, tend to enjoy better relationships with them.
