I would like to learn Mandarin

Post by abliss1971 » Fri, 01 Jun 2007 4:47 pm

Could anyone recommend a class or tutor who is willing to help me learn mandarin. Basic level. In fact just verbal would be a great start. Thanks

Hi, try the classes held by the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce (Institute of Business - SCCIOB). http://www.scciob.edu.sg

Their Gateway to Mandarin class is quite good, very structured and needs no previous experience. If you're taking Level 1, there's no entrance test.

The evening classes are good, but if you work late they also do Saturday classes. I like their location because they're just a short walk from City Hall MRT.

Getting a private tutor is another option. You might progress faster with private tuition but then again it's more fun in a class!

Cheers,
Ching

Hi Laura,

You posted a message a while ago saying that you would be happy to teach mandarin. Are you still interested? I amd a beginner, I learn with a very good book and CDs but I need to improve my pronounciation and hearing. If you are interested to give me lessons for a fee, please answer this message.

Cheers,
Manon

Mandarin

Post by gcw33 » Mon, 31 Mar 2008 10:32 pm

Hey,

I just moved here about a month ago and am also interested in learning mandarin. I was taking a look at the blog from the last post. Looks pretty good, but expensive. Is $45/hour a standard price for tutoring? I have absolutely nothing to compare to, so not really sure if that is reasonable or not.

Any idea on this?

Thanks

Gabe
