Our well structured public group courses (HSK) have been designed to help individuals develop their Mandarin in a systematic and efficient manner. This course is also perfect for students wishing to participate in the HSK exam (an internationally recognised qualification which assesses the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers from beginner to advanced level (divided into levels 1-6)). Our group courses will guide you through the levels systematically, helping you to grasp a strong understanding of the language.

In addition to group courses we offer one to one tuition for individuals looking for greater flexibility or focus. Your teacher will design unique lessons to meet your needs and requirements, the course content can focus on anything from exam preparation to survival Chinese or business Chinese (intermediate and above). The time of your class will also be very flexible and can be discussed directly with the teacher.

These 1-2-1 classes provide a more efficient and flexible way of studying and cost only £20 per hour. The first block of 1-2-1 lessons must be purchased as a block of at least 10 hours. After which, lessons can be bought in blocks of 5 hours. Please contact CITCM to confirm availability prior to making the payment at our online shop.

Private group courses are tailored to accommodate the needs of 2 or more people. This is an efficient way to help small groups of students/friends/associates improve their Chinese communication ability whilst preparing them for the HSK exams. These classes cost only £15 per person per hour. The first block of small group lessons must be purchased as a block of at least 10 hours. After which, lessons can be bought in blocks of 5 hours. Students must form their group themselves.
