Our Language related courses

Our Chinese language courses consist of four levels: HSK1-HSK4. HSK stands for Hanyu Shuiping Kaosh. This is is an internationally standardized exam that focuses on testing the Chinese communication skills of non-native speakers in daily life, study, and work. The levels of HSK1-4 cover beginner to intermediate-high proficiency in Chinese.

The courses we provide aim to help you make a leap from beginner to advanced level in Chinese and develop the ability to use Chinese in your daily life. Whether you are learning Chinese for personal or professional reasons, we can help you achieve your language goals. If you are interested in taking the HSK exam, completing the courses will prepare you to take the corresponding level of the exam.
