mandarin classes

Post by greenteaandchocolate » Mon, 12 Jun 2006 8:48 am

Hi all,
I hope I'm posting in the right place. For a hobby, I thought it would be fun to study Mandarin in my spare time because it would be good for understanding more of Singaporean Chinese culture, and good for traveling. Anyone have any suggestions?

cheers,

mike

oops I just noticed there is already a reply to this question:
http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/ftopic899.html

If anyone has any experience with any schools that aren't too expensive let me know. That thread doesn't have any actual reviews of schools.

Ever consider looking for a private Chinese tutor? For school, I must say NUS Extension seems good but a little expensive.

You might want to look it up in the yellow pages or some other directory. I took lessons at this language learning center called "Tianlong" at International Plaza near Shenton Way. Its located on the 19th floor the building and I think I paid $220 for 10 lessons. Pretty good level of instruction , but they make you buy their textbooks.

Hi, I'd like to share private mandarin classes with anyone that's interested. My knowledge of mandarin is basic (I've taken some intro classes).

Hi, all. As a Chinese from China who has been working in Singapore 6 yrs, pleased to see the so many local intend to improve their mandarin. I'm willing to chat with you, on the other hand, it might be able to improve my spoken english as well.

the more you speak, the faster you improve because " Practice make perfect",
