PRACTICE CHINESE ONLINE, THE FUN WAY
Why It’s The Way To Go
Applying, using and practicing what you learned is the key to Chinese language fluency.
Homework, self-study, vocab review etc. are all helpful, but in the end we learn a language by using it.
During class we practice dialogues in a structured environment which is great to start out, however real life does not work like this.
In day to day life, any combinations of words, sentences or vocab could come your way and this can be intimidating.
There is no machine, AI or computer game that can accurately simulate real life (yet?).
Practice these situations with your class mates, guided by a professional language teacher.
Speak freely, have fun, try and always know there is a teacher there to help out with vocab you might need, support and encourage you.
Check Out Our Free Culture Classes
In the Fun & Practice Flexi Class level we offer three different kinds of classes. All Fun & Practice classes can be booked both as group or 1-on-1 classes and are available for students of all Chinese levels.
You will practice speaking freely with your teacher and class mates.
Each class has a different topic that you will discuss with your teacher and class mates.
Topics are chosen according to the student’s level, so do not worry, it will be challenging but you will be able to master it.
Your teacher will support and manage the conversation, but students always speak freely. You will be talking a lot while receiving feedback, suggestions and new vocab as needed from your teacher.
At the end of the class you will get a list of all the new words you learned to use during the class.
The progress in speaking ability and confidence through these classes is astounding.
Chinese & Games
Studying Chinese is a great thing, however it is also very challenging, sometimes exhausting.
That’s why it is essential to not only practice but also enjoy using this beautiful language.
Relax, take a step back and let’s play some games in Mandarin. Use your vocabulary, try out some grammar and just have fun playing with the language.
We laugh a lot, have fun and enjoy the class however while doing so you will be constantly practicing your Mandarin.
You will be speaking a lot and always have a teacher available to support you with a word you do not know yet or a sentence structure.
At the end of the class you will receive a summary of all the new vocab and sentence structures that came up during the class.
Chinese tones are one of the main challenges of studying Mandarin.
When native speakers do not understand what we are trying to say, this can drive us crazy.
We know the vocabulary, we learned the grammar, we are 100% sure what we need to say, yet a native speaker could just look at us and not understand a thing.
Tones are an integral part of Mandarin and it is essential to learn them.
The key to learning how to pronounce tones correctly is good teaching and practice.
The teacher practices tones with students, listens to pronunciation, helps to improve and corrects and explains things like tongue position and tonal charts if needed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many classes should I take?
This is completely up to you, however most of our students regularly take Fun & Practice classes throughout their Flexi Classes Chinese learning journey.
Tone Practice classes make sense to take until you feel confident in saying tones correctly but once you do, there is no real need to take any more of those.
Free Speaking however is something that students continuously get better at. From being able to have the first simple conversation in Mandarin to making a speech about Chinese contemporary art, Free Speaking classes continuously help you to get further ahead step by step.
So usually Free Speaking and Chinese & Games classes are taken at all levels, whereas Tonal Practice classes students only study until they mastered the tones.
How long is one class?

This is called “immediate cancel” and is always available just in case you pressed a wrong button or something came up that won’t allow you to take the class.
Can I learn Chinese Slang?
Absolutely yes you can.
These classes are all about learning how to speak in real life and slang is an important part of this. We practice speaking like natives in the streets of Beijing, Shanghai and Taipei.
This is often quite different to what you might have learned in a text book.
It is also usually very colourful and pretty fun too.
How can I speak Mandarin like a native?
Practice, practice, practice!
Use your text book Chinese in real life situations, take the risk to be overwhelmed, to not understand, to be misunderstood, to not get what you want and plunge into real life.
Do not fear: we have all been there, got through it and so will you.
Can I cancel classes?
Yes of course you can.
Like all Flexi Classes you can cancel Fun & Practice classes. Your full credits are returned as long as you do so 72 hours before the class and during your credits validity.
Who are the teachers?
Like all Flexi Classes, the Fun & Practice classes are taught by professional LTL Chinese language teachers.
