  Programs:  We offer programs at four levels; Beginner, Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced.  In addition, we have a program that is geared towards business and another that includes an internship after completion.  If you are a total beginner, naturally you will start at that level.  If you already have some skill in Chinese language, we will give you a simple verbal/written placement test upon your arrival to insure you enter at the proper level.  You may also want a program designed with the intension of taking/passing the Chinese Proficiency Test or HSK which is the Chinese equivalent to the American TOEFL exam.

Start Dates:  Group classes start at various levels weekly.  When you contact us and as we discuss your individual needs, we will also let you know specific dates for your level.  Of course, if you're requesting one-on-one classes there is more flexibility on starting dates.
