2) Innovative teaching methods. We employ effective, classroom-tested Chinese teaching methodologies in our classes. However, we are constantly searching for even more ways to improve our instruction.

3) Emphasis on practicality. We place a high priority on your ability to immediately use and apply what is learned in the classroom.

4) Mastery of the fundamental elements. We use fun and engaging exercises to help you master the most frequently used vocabulary and grammar points.

5) Effective trouble-shooting. We systematically target problem areas for you and provide consistent, gentle correction.

6) Confidence building. Classes are designed to maximize the amount of time you spend speaking and using Chinese. Only in an intensive one-on-one setting can the instructor give you the individual attention they need.
