INSTITUT PEÑA THE BEST BEIJING CHINESE LANGUAGE TRAINING
- Institut PEÑA Mandarin Chinese linguistic programs are built to insert students in a total and intensive Mandarin Chinese linguistic environment thanks to the quality of the courses always in small classes allowing practical use of the acquired language knowledge.
- Institute PEÑA trainings developed from the methods and programs of Chinese teaching developed by the national training center to Mandarin Chinese integrate all aspects of the language (reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, phonetics and vocabulary) and culture. Accelerated teaching methods allow students at lower proficiency levels to acquire the language skills needed for effective communication in a short period of time, and at higher proficiency levels, expression proficiency at an abstract level.
- The rythm of teaching is adapted to western students and Institute PEÑA teachers are all highly qualified with years of experience in teaching Mandarin Chinese as Second language to international students.
All courses are given in total Chinese Mandarin immersion in small classes (12-15 students). Explanations are intuitive. If an interrogation persists, teacher explains in English.
- Chinese language courses Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 12:00. (20 hours training means 15-20 hours weekly homework beside classes.)
Language levels of group classes
At the beginning of the courses the level of the students is evaluated to establish their degree of competence. At the end of the training, the pstudents are again evaluated to determine their progress and receive a certificate of competences indicating their level and the scores obtained.
Students of the short term sessions will receive the “Certificate of Shorts-term Chinese Study” (certificate of short studies of Chinese language), if they followed the courses (95%) and their results at the final examinations allow it.
