Achieve fluent communication and outstanding HSK results.
You learn a language so you can do things with it – to accomplish real-world tasks, or functions. From day 1, we focus on enabling students to “do something” with what they learn, and design our lessons around that objective. We try to steer around overuse of unecessary jargons and lengthy explanations and focus on practical applications.
Learning is hard work, but it should never be boring, so we designed our courses to be concise yet fun and engaging. We use instruction design principles proposed by Robert M. Gagné, as well as multimedia learning guidelines by Richard E. Mayer. The instructional designs are so successful that we have received many raving reviews from our students.
All of our courses focus on communication and function. We strive to help students use the language by providing plenty of practice, both written and oral. We help and encourage students to practice with a language exchange partner via sites such as iTalki. This way students learn to use the language in real life, not just to pass tests.
All of our courses use the standardized HSK curriculum. When you complete a course, you will be able to pass the HSK test for that level so you can measure your progress and prove your ability. Carefully designed lessons following a well established program delivers real, measurable results. All courses follow the HSK Standard Course textbook by Jiang Liping.
