1. The Program

Study HSK Intensive Mandarin at one of the biggest and leading language centers in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Language Training Center has been teaching Mandarin and Cantonese to students and business clients from around the world since 1994. Located in the busy Causeway Bay area of Hong Kong island, the program provides an intensive and comprehensive learning program in conversation and Chinese reading and writing. All courses are conducted by HSK Examiners and qualified teachers, who are certified in teaching Chinese as a second language. Classes are small, with a maximum of 7 students per class, which assures that each student receives the maximum of individual attention.

Students take 5 hours of class per day, Monday - Friday. (25 hours of class per week, or 100 hours per month) Includes language lab. Classes usually are conducted from 11:00am - 5:00 pm, with 1 hour lunch break and 1 hour language lab studying. All students take a placement test to determine level, and then placed in the proper level course. All levels are offered, from the absolute beginner through intermediate and advanced levels.


2. Course Content

HKLTC offers both Cantonese and Mandarin courses. Our teaching approach focuses mainly on "immersion - conversation" learning as well as reading and writing. Students are guided to speak only Cantonese or Mandarin in the classroom, and class size is kept small (7 or less), to maximize personal attention. All the Cantonese/Mandarin courses are taught by qualified native teachers who have completed special training for teaching Chinese as a second language to non-native speakers. A transcript (Certificate) is awarded to all students upon completing the course. See the program dates section for more schedule information.
