Learning vocabulary is one of the most important part of learning a language. The more words you know, the more you will be able to understand the language. Chinese, like other languages, has many words that have the same/similar meaning but are used in particular contexts. Therefore, most students will find it more efficient to learn vocabulary "in context", meaning learn Chinese in phrases.
Unlike some other languages (such as French or Spanish), there is absolutely no connection between English and Chinese vocabulary. This makes memorization of individual words more challenging. Chinese learners who go to typical Chinese schools face many challenges. Without real-world Chinese phrases to teach, without the right materials and tutelage, no wonder so many find Chinese difficult to master.
At Mandarin House we pride ourselves on self-developed learning materials with contemporary Chinese phrases and vocabulary that is being continuously updated. In addition to classroom learning our curriculum features cultural activities, excursions and engaging language projects. Our professional and dedicated teachers are employed full time and are certified to teach Mandarin as a second language. Progress is encouraged with weekly training and monthly evaluations by our educational department. Students are amazed by how fast they can learn and improvement is evident even after the first class.
