Mandarin Chinese Lessons in Adelaide

Are you too busy to attend a language school? Too tired of long commutes? With our flexible in-person private lessons, you can make the most of your time and learn a new language faster than with any other method. Our courses are face-to-face, personalized, and the quickest way to start speaking Mandarin Chinese.

The type of courses we offer:

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) General Mandarin Chinese

These Mandarin Chinese lessons fit a broader spectrum and can be useful for those who need different things from the language. Most beginner students will have a handle of survival Mandarin Chinese by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough Mandarin Chinese to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions. Typical students have been those eager to travel all over the world, those buying overseas property, those with foreign spouses, aficionados of Mandarin Chinese culture and those who just wish to pass a particular Mandarin Chinese exam.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business Mandarin Chinese

Mandarin Chinese lessons of this type are aimed towards those that need to learn Mandarin Chinese to aid them with their employment. For those just starting out, it is integral to learn basic greetings and business etiquette. Reading and writing can be adopted once the simple precepts are out of the way. Success has come from students who are involved in the import/export business, international negotiations and acquisitions, those seeking jobs in multinational companies and those working with foreign colleagues, academia and bureaucracy. Even our most basic lesson for beginners will have the student finishing the lesson with basic telephone/e-mail skills in Mandarin Chinese, as well as survival Mandarin Chinese should a short stay in the country is needed.

The Moon Represents My Heart- Teresa Teng

Teresa Teng was a very popular artist in the 1970s and her music is still played today throughout China, especially in karaoke bars. This is a very catchy, romantic song where the poetic persona describes the moon and its qualities, while comparing it to her loving heart. Listening to this song will help you understand cultural aspects of the language (such as the importance of Chinese New Year), which is essential to become truly fluent in Mandarin. Why not try to sing out loud and practise your pronunciation while having fun?

Hide the Band – In Beijing

If you are a fan of rap and are studying Mandarin Chinese at the moment, you can combine your passions to learn new vocabulary and grammar! For example, “Hide the Band” is a song about the music world and how bands struggle to become successful, so it is a great track to get acquainted with vocabulary about music, such as singer (Gēshou), agent (Dàili rén) and microphone (Màikèfeng). The song is fast-paced and includes a lot of slang and colloquial pronunciations, so it might be best for advanced students who are already used to Chinese intonation.

The Drunken Beauty- Li Yu Gang

You will find plenty of descriptive adjectives, as each poetic persona describes what they like in the other person. It does not include any complicated grammar structures or extravagant vocabulary, so you will be able to understand the song, even if you are just a beginner!
