Chinese Language Immersion Programs for Adults

As an adult with the best learning development age past already, what should be taken into serious consideration when you try to dig out the most efficient and suitable Mandarin immersion program to enroll in? I would like to list out my tips for you by five clues as follow: ‘Where,’ ‘Who,’ ‘What,’ ‘How long’ and ‘How.’

Where would you choose as your destination to stay and have your Mandarin immersion program?

 

Beijing is not the only available choice for you. Though standard Mandarin is considered the official Chinese-speaking language, it doesn’t mean that Beijing dialect, which is spoken often by Beijing inhabitants, is the standard Mandarin. What’s more, Beijing is not a very ideal city for a language learner to practice their Chinese speaking skill, because in this metropolis, lots of people can speak fluent English and it will diminish your chance of practicing Chinese.

On the contrary, Kunming city, located in southern China, would be a better destination for your Chinese immersion. With its mild climate and less international connection, you could immerse yourself in a pure Chinese language environment and enjoy a better natural living condition here. When you can speak Chinese with a local Chinese speaker every day, you will experience the same lifestyle and culture as a local resident and make your Mandarin language program more efficient.

Who will be your proper instructor?

Both universities and private schools deliver Mandarin learning programs in Kunming, but I would say that private school, especially Keats School, is a better institution for learning Chinese. As the best Mandarin school in China, Keats School earns its reputation based on its professional teaching team and outstanding instructing practice. Keats will provide a tailor-made learning program to every student to meet their very individualized requirement. What’s more, the tuition fees of all learning programs in Keats are budget-friendly and affordable to all. The tuition fee will cover your study program, accommodation, 3 meals a day, culture & movie night, free access to all Keats facilities, free weekend excursions, free Wednesday language exchange, and free 24/7 support. By picking Keats Chinese learning program, you would enjoy a carefree language journey.

What is your target when learning a second language?

When learning a second language, it would be better to set your target first, and then you could work hard towards a clear goal. Setting a specific goal can also help you choose a suitable course and form your learning schedule. For some Mandarin learners, they study Chinese to add valued professional skill on their profiles; and for some others, they study Chinese to explore more about ancient Chinese culture; there are also a few learners who already knew some Chinese but still want to further improve their oral proficiency in different circumstances, and some backpackers think it would be more convenient if they could communicate directly with locals during the trip. Only when you’re clear about your goals, you would know what assistance you may need and how to work on it. In Keats School, there’re various language programs to match up with different learning targets: Intensive One-on-One Chinese class, Small group Chinese class, HSK Test preparation course, Online Chinese course, Chinese language course combining with volunteer event, and Chinese language course combining with a tour in Yunnan.

How long could you spend on your language study?

One advantage that adult owns when relates to study is that adults are accountable for their decision. Adults have the motivation and ability to plan their learning routine and distribute time accordingly. Professional instructors always suggest that a one-year length of study is the most ideal duration to master a second language. The One-year Chinese language course conducted by Keats School will be your best choice if you aim to master Mandarin practice quickly and efficiently. Spending 4 to 6 hours a day in a comprehensive Chinese-speaking environment, you can absorb enough knowledge from the program but won’t be too weary post-study. There are plenty of activities and events for you to explore after the course as well. With one year of immersing in Chinese culture and language background, your Chinese proficiency would be improved efficiently.

Online Chinese Course will be another ideal program for you if you’re concerned about traveling and moving to China for language study. It’s a more flexible choice for beginners. You could fit this learning schedule into your daily agenda as you wish, but also with an unavoidable disadvantage: the lack of language environment for a language learner to immerse in.

How would you like your learning program to be conducted?

To meet the diverse learning needs of different students, the Chinese language immersion program should never be fixed in one model. In Keats School, you can customize your Chinese immersion programs in different aspects. You may take the intensive course or combine your course with other activities and cultural experiences that you enjoy. You can find more details about different elements you may add to your program from the Keats School website. The picture representing below shows you an example of different compositions of the Chinese language immersion program. An interesting language learning program can motivate you best.

Josh | USA
Small Group Chinese Class

I really had a wonderful experience at the school. The teachers are very very friendly. In my class, we practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing. We play games and other fun activities. We have trips around town. The staff at Keats is phenomenal. My teacher is one of the best teachers I have ever had in my educational experience. She comes in with a smile every day.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

Kunming’s scenery is very beautiful. It is the best place to study Chinese in China. My favorite learning method at Keats School is one-on-one because it is suitable for everyone. My teacher is very good, very caring, and lovely. My life when learning Chinese in Kunming is very good and the weather is very good. The air is very good. It is good for the elderly’s body.

Claudia | Australia
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I’ve been at Keats school and Kunming now for one month doing the one-on-one Chinese lessons with two different teachers. I really enjoy it. Both of my teachers are very friendly and patient. They really helped me to improve my Chinese, both of my reading and speaking. I really enjoy studying Chinese in Kunming as well. This city is really beautiful and the weather is nice, the air is clean. It’s one of the best cities in China to study Chinese.

Hilary | USA
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I’ve had a really great time here. I’ve studied a lot with my teacher who was fantastic. Keats School tried very hard to match its students with really good teachers that their personality works very well together. I really enjoy studying Chinese at Keats and I will definitely come back.

Jean | USA
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I can’t tell you how much I liked it. The thing I liked about the teachers and the teaching method is that there is so much flexibility. The other thing I liked about the teaching is the combination of classic textbook learning and going outside. I loved it! I like getting to know other students. Everybody shared the same goal and that’s making their Chinese better. Kunming is a big city, but it is very safe to live here. Another thing I liked about Keats is the idea that people here help you. I can’t recommend it enough. I think it was a valuable experience. Looking forward to coming back!

Ramji | USA
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

The best part of the school is the patience the instructors had and the time to focus on the fundamentals like pronunciation. I think it is very easy to skip over those and go to vocabulary. But by learning the pronunciation, I feel like it helped me gain a better understanding of the language.

Mike | Australia
Small Group Chinese Class

I think Kunming is a great city, the weather is really good. I really like Keats school and found it is very organized. The teachers here are very good. They have a coffee shop and new classrooms, a new lounge area here now, so you can chill out with your friends and practice your spoken Chinese with natives. If you’re considering coming to Keats to study, I would really recommend it. It’s the best place to learn Mandarin and I think it will be a great experience for you.

 

Judith | USA
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

Listening and speaking in the classroom every day has improved my communication skills. After three weeks, my new words and sentences became more and more natural and fluent. Now I am used to thinking in Chinese, and I understand better what other people say, to be able to have real conversations with other people.
