New York City / Chinese

Chinese 1

We get it, you don’t know anything more than “nĭ hăo” and “xièxie,” or maybe you’ve taken a decade off. Either way, you’re ready for that all to change by learning Mandarin in Chinese 1. This class is perfect for you if you're completely new to the language and want to get the basics down to start speaking conversational Chinese.

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

Get ready for this and more

Pick up practical, conversational phrases like introducing yourself and ordering the best dish off the menu. Get into language foundations like pronunciation, differences in tones, and pinyin. Build your vocabulary, from daily activities to food.

 

 

Say more than just hello

You'll walk away knowing how to confidently introduce yourself and make a damn good impression. You'll also learn survival phrases and expressions—like if we dropped you in Beijing or Shanghai, you'd be just fine. 

Community & Conversation

We've been told our classes feel more like dinner parties. You'll start speaking on day one, in a community of passionate, like-minded people, all working toward becoming fluent. We believe in getting away from just the textbook and diving into conversation.

 

 

Small Classes, Great Materials

Size does matter—and we keep 'em small! Average class size is 10 students and focused on practical, everyday use of language.

 

We use the best materials—from custom audio recordings and books handpicked by us. We'll send you details on which book you need to purchase after checkout. Questions? Call us for more details.
