Course Selector


Language training

MEC offers General Chinese, Business Chinese and HSK and Company
Chinese Language Test Preparation courses. All Mandarin Chinese
Courses are designed to provide students with the necessary language
and cultural skills to succeed in both a personal and professional
Chinese language environment. Each course consists of speaking,
listening, reading and writing, while also gaining cultural
understanding. The two points are the most important to improve
Chinese language progress, they are:

* Speaking and Listening Class - Speaking Class primarily focuses on
correct pronunciation and word usage. This class is designed to
improve speaking and listening skills so that students feel more
confident when using new grammar and vocabulary in real-life
situations. We provide ample opportunity for students to speak more,
which we believe is the key to improvement. The listening class
focuses on listening to different Mandarin speakers in different
situations, so that students can practice listening and understanding

* Grasp the Grammar- Having the fundamental grammar skills, sentence
structure and vocabulary are the basic skills for students to grasp
Chinese language. MEC teachers have lots of experience in teaching
students in this regard by using text books as well as other media
