Why Take a One-year Chinese Language Course?

China has achieved huge economic growth; therefore, speaking Chinese fluently has become a highly valued professional skill. Studying Chinese in China can bring you numerous and varied benefits. So take the challenges and make your dream come true. Many students often ask a prevalent question: ‘How long does it take to master Mandarin?’

My answer would be one year.

Don’t be surprised. I understand it seems clueless with making your learning schedule or knowing where to start with, or even how to evaluate your learning stages, but Keats School will provide you with professional guidance. The One-year Chinese Language Course is conducted for ambitious mandarin learners who want to master mandarin within one year. Following are the reasons why you should take a one-year Chinese language course at Keats School.

Full immersion environment

First of all, the best way to learn Chinese is to travel to China and get full immersion here. Studying Mandarin in an environment rich in oriental elements and Chinese culture will allow you to devote full attention to your study. You can practice what you’ve learned in courses directly with a native speaker. According to researches, we only remember 20% of what we hear and read (i.e., lectures, audio programs), while we remember up to 90% of what we say and do. So it’s always a better way to learn Mandarin with frequent practicing. Learning Chinese in Kunming, where Keats School is based, is relatively off the beaten path, making Keats School an excellent place to immerse in Mandarin. A one-year Chinese language course is also a fabulous way to experience the cultural differences between the western and oriental world, so you can better understand the Chinese language’s cultural background, which is a prominent part of language learning. In this one-year Chinese language course, with highly efficient time invested in Chinese speaking, you will definitely make huge progress in Mandarin skills.

Approaching a high level of proficiency in Chinese

How to evaluate your proficiency in language learning? That is one’s speaking and reading level. After attending a one-year Chinese language course in Keats School, you’re promised to be able to use Chinese fluently and accurately on all levels pertinent to professional needs. As to reading, you will be able to read standard newspaper items addressed to the general reader, routine correspondence, reports, and technical materials in the individual’s special field. All these key abilities can prove that you are approaching the demands of HSK-5, which is the symbol of mastering the Chinese language.

Enrolling in a regular study schedule can keep you accountable for learning.

During your journey of learning Mandarin, the most difficult part would be keeping yourself accountable. Enrolling in the one-year Mandarin language program, with professional study guidance from your ‘Study Advisor’ of Keats School, you could know well about your learning status and what’s your next stage. It’s just like you’re running a marathon; you would be most motivated when you clearly know where you’re. Accountability can help you maintain a regular study schedule and turn your learning motivation into actual progress.

International learning community

Keats School has a long history of delivering professional and systematic Mandarin courses, which earn it a great reputation and attract loads of students worldwide. While studying Chinese here, you would be surrounded by serious people with various cultural backgrounds but all interested in learning Mandarin. A dynamic Chinese study community would inspire you and pump you up, so you could engage more to your study goals and also find study partners to share your progress with. Especially if you choose to study in a small group of Chinese classes, assistance from the learning community will help ensure that you wouldn’t skip out on studying.

Affordable tuition fees and thoughtful supports

The one-year Chinese language course in Keats School is budget-friendly 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. We understand that living abroad can be stressful, especially for the first time. All Keats staffs are here to ease your concerns and make your transition smooth. Keats is your home in China and is with you all the time.

It doesn’t matter what level of Chinese you have, or even you can start from the zero level. Your teacher will prepare the lessons according to your requirements. The advantage of living in the school is that you will have your tutoring, you will have your private accommodation with your own bathroom and all the meals provided. I highly recommend everybody to actually take the whole package because you get to meet other students.
