Learn Chinese with
One-on-one Personal Tutoring in China

Can you guess what the most spoken language in the world is? If you guessed English, you guessed wrong! Mandarin has overtaken English as the most spoken language in the world. This being the case, learning to speak Mandarin can open doors for you globally and make a positive impact on your career. You don’t have to attend a university or school to learn Chinese either; we have a range of courses available to suit you, from one-on-one personal tutoring through to small group classes and university programs.

Not everyone wants to study in a formal class environment, even if it’s a small class. Others may find that they need even more flexibility with when they can learn, like business executives, busy individuals or Interns. It may be that you want to learn only specific aspects of the language, rather than follow a structured class curriculum. If that’s you, then private Chinese lessons may be just the thing; lessons customized to your requirements, availability and learning goals. Bring Mandarin to life and learn to use it sufficiently for your needs in the setting of your choice, with a personal tutor who is experienced in teaching Chinese to a foreigner.

We use assessments to determine your level of Chinese language proficiency so that your classes are personalized to your level of skill. Armed with information, your tutor can adjust his/her teaching to help you learn faster.

 

Tutoring sessions can take place at your preferred location, for example, it can be in the comfort of your apartment, on a local campus, at a coffee shop, your workplace or our offices. The length of the program can be anything from a week to 3 months, the length of your program and the start date is entirely up to you!

For intensive learning that fast-tracks your proficiency in Mandarin, we recommend you have 4-6 hours of tutoring per day, usually divided between morning and afternoon, or even during the evening.

Usually, the main areas of study covered are general Chinese, Business Chinese, and HSK preparation. You can also choose to focus on law, business and commerce, current affairs, reading and speaking, writing and more. However, lesson content can be tailored entirely to suit your needs.

Transferring to a foreign language study program in another country can be a complicated process. Making sure you have everything sorted, from choosing the right place to study to transferring credits, organizing visas and getting around can do your head in. Go Abroad China is here to make the process as smooth as possible; we’ll handle all the details and ensure your stay in China is memorable for the right reasons! GAC can make sure you get into the university of your choice, organize all the details for you, help you with your visa and arrange the little extras that make the experience worthwhile! GAC arranges affordable, accredited and quality Chinese language programs. We’ve placed thousands of happy students and would love to do the same for you.

Tuan - Australia Internship Program in Beijing

Living and working in Beijing really opened my eyes. The people are extremely nice and helpful. During work, even though there is a huge language barrier, my colleagues do try to communicate with me and the manager was able to organise me to learn from different departments. I was able to make new friends and visit many places in Beijing. Everyone from GAC are very helpful and supportive. Overall I am satisfied with the program. Read More

GAC-Testimonial-Chris

Chris - United Kingdom Internship Program in Beijing

My time in China has been extremely rewarding. When I arrived, the culture shock was immense but I quickly settled into Chinese life, thanks to Gina and the GAC team. My internship was exactly what I was looking for, and it gave me the opportunity to work in a fantastically social co-working space in the heart of Sanlitun SOHO, a cosmopolitan and refined area.

David - Australia Internship Program in Shanghai

Overall I enjoyed my experience with GAC. I was pleased with the amount of knowledge I learned and the new experiences I went through during my internship as a financial analyst at a finance company which GAC found on my behalf. The internship made me realize how fast things move in the finance industry and I feel it has prepared me well for the transition from university to the work force. Read More

Here are reasons why you should learn Mandarin Chinese, and more so, why you should come to China to learn it:

  1. Experience one of the world’s oldest civilizations juxtaposed with modern living; get immersed in the rich sights, sounds and flavors of China, they’re unique!
  2. Learn to speak the world’s most spoken language faster than you ever could by learning at home (and get in loads of practice with the locals while you’re here).
  3. Challenge yourself and grow; develop critical thinking and confidence, learn to adapt, get to know yourself better, and develop skills that will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life.
  4. Add an experience to your résumé that will make you stand out from the crowd. Both college and employers value the characteristics you have and develop as an international student and intern.
  5. See some of the world’s oldest buildings, meet endangered pandas, explore the vast regional areas of China that range from mountains to deserts, and get the chance to see record breaking bridges and futuristic architecture.
  6. Make new friends for life that live all over the world (you may even have opportunities to visit them in their countries later on!).
  7. Gain global perspectives from the world’s largest exporter, get to understand international trade and how to do it well.
  8. Many companies across the globe, especially multinational corporations either have a presence in China or do business with China. The demand for English/Mandarin Chinese speakers is high, but the number of people who are fluent in both is low. This opens up amazing opportunities for your future!

    A day in the life of an Participant

    • Start the day at your intern position

    Our Tutors

    Our personal tutors are native Chinese speakers who are qualified to teach Chinese as a foreign language, and in fact, you may find that the tutor you get assigned to also has experience teaching at one of the top universities in China!

    In your first private lesson, your tutor will work with you to finalize your lesson schedule, your goals and any other details they need to ensure you get the most out of your lessons. We want to make sure you get the highest quality of tutoring, professionally delivered.

    To ensure our program delivers the highest quality, we ask our students to deliver a progress report every three weeks to confirm whether they’re satisfied with their lessons and tutor. A senior supervisor will also assess the tutor and lessons once a month. This feedback is then used to help the tutor improve their lessons and performance and ensures our level of quality is maintained.

    One-on-one tutoring can be used for those who are starting to learn Mandarin, want to be able to better use business Chinese - for commerce, law, economics, current affairs and more, for HSK test preparation, for speaking Chinese, reading Chinese or writing Chinese. You’ll have all the support and materials you’ll need to study modern Chinese.

    With the right amount of hard work and a go-getter attitude, you’ll be able to master Mandarin faster, reaching your desired results through the close support of your tutor.
