Learn from expert teachers
Our Chinese courses are facilitated by expert Chinese teachers who are committed to providing a learning experience that matches your needs and goals.
Our teachers support you with a personalised study plan and give you direct feedback to help you accelerate your progress.
Each course has different learning objectives that increase in difficulty according to your level of competence. Our teachers are trained in the communicative approach, an approach to language teaching that emphasises interaction and the use of language in real-life situations. We help you practice listening, speaking, reading and writing so that you can develop the full range of language skills.
You can find out more about inlingua’s approach to learning here.
We use the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) to define our language levels, and our courses are offered from Beginner to Mastery level.

We keep our class sizes small so that we can maximise your opportunities for interaction and participation. Typically, we have about 6 students per class, although we can accommodate class sizes from 4 to 15.
A lesson usually lasts about 2 hours — each hour comprises 50-minutes of class time followed by a 10-minute break.
The price for course materials can cost as little as S$15 whereas others cost more. We use a variety of course books and materials from our publishers and charge for them separately as some books can be used across multiple courses. You can check the materials cost for your course with one of our course advisors.
