Conversational Chinese Classes

Chinese language classes

About this course

Stemming from classical Chinese literature, learning Chinese can appear daunting at first. However, here at the Oxford Language Academy,  our teachers make learning to speak Chinese easy. Our Conversational Chinese classes are specially designed for beginners and for those who intend to brush up their conversational Chinese language skills. Through the guidance of our learned teachers, your Chinese learning experience will be smooth and exciting.

The course covers simple Chinese dialogue (through the aid of English translations), basic grammar, vocabulary and expressions. It will also illustrate interpersonal communication etiquette and formalities on how to address others. Even though this class emphasises on the speaking aspect of the Chinese language, it also offers a small portion on reading of Chinese characters.

Part of learning a language involves embracing its use in its native context and the rich culture behind it. Students get glimpse of the distinct lifestyle and diverse experiences of Chinese culture through the various illustrations of Chinese culture that is presented in every lesson. Classes held are immersive and interactive, enabling students to speak Chinese to one another.

With the use of phonetic exercises, students will learn proper pronunciation of the Chinese language, as well as, speaking in the correct Chinese accent. Our aim is to develop students’ conversational skills and appreciation for Chinese. Students will be able to seamlessly converse by delivering simple sentences and honing a vocabulary of at least 400 words. Hence, at the end of the course, students will be able to construct basic sentences with proper grammatical structure through the correct use of verbs.
