Mr. Tang has been preparing me for HSK 5 test. He is a very encouraging teacher and has provided me with lots of suitable exercises and learning material. I feel my Chinese, especially vovabulary and writing skills, have improved a lot under his coaching. I could have learned a little more reading, especially reading under time pressure, before my test. But, of course, reading is a skill one should and could pratise at home. All in all I am very grateful for Mr. Tang's guidance and I can recommend him to other students in advance Chinese.

If you want to learn Chinese you should definately go to the Bridge School. In the Beginging i was afraid how it will be to learn this difficult language.But the teachers are excellent and they use different ways to bring the Chinese language closer to you. I recommend a group lesson becuase you can practice a lot and at the same time you have fun learning. Ater 50 hours I am able to communicate and speak with Chinese people in the daily lift. Apart from school teacher took it as her pleasure to show us around Beijing. introduce us the Chinese culture and tradition and went shopping with us. Of Course we tried to speak Chinese very time we met. The private lesson also have high a quality. Besides the environment is nice and friendly and the location is beautiful. I really enjoyed amd the location is beautiful. I really enjoyed learning Chinese speaking time with my teacher and group.

Frequently Asked Questions
For your convenience we have provided our answers to our frequently  asked questions. If you have a question that isn't addressed here or  elsewhere on our website, please Contact Us.

What Curriculum do you use?
Unless decided in advance, our teachers will use your first lesson to determine your ability and expectations. From this they can help you choose the textbook series that will work best for you.

Who are your teachers?
Our teachers are all experienced Chinese teachers, who are able to adjust their teaching style to most effectively meet the students’ needs. The majority of our teachers have a degree in teaching Chinese to foreigners. 

Can you provide a visa?
1 on1 class is unable to grant Student visas (X), generally only universities who teach large classes are able to offer this kind of visa. Our full time students tend to have Tourist (L) Visas, or Business Trip (F) Visa, which we can often help with arranging for students preparing to come to china.

What happens if I miss a class?
Each student has a limited number of classes that can re- scheduled. Classes canceled with less than  24hours no- tice however cannot be re-scheduled.

Why do you offer an afternoon discount?
Some students prefer to study in the afternoon, but more students prefer to study in the morning. By offering a discount in the afternoon we are able to balance our schedule for morning and afternoon classes and offer a discount for the more price sensitive students.

Can your teachers help students prepare for the HSK?
We want our students to succeed in whatever language goals they set for themselves. For those who want to take the HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi – a standardized test for measuring your Chinese ability), our teachers are able to support you by helping work through the appropriate curriculum to attain that goal.

How long does it take your students to pass the HSK?
For most of our students their main goal is to achieve fluency in speaking in preparation for pursuing work and friendships within China. However, to give you an approximate time frame for HSK, previous students have passed HSK 4 after 18months of class (at 6 hours of class per week), and other students have passed HSK 5 after 26 months of class (at 10 hours of class per week). A few of our students have attained HSK 6 in this same period of time.

Is there an entrance exam?
There is no entrance exam. Our teachers can teach from any level from complete beginner or advanced-high. For those who have already studied Chinese, we may ask them to complete a short test (30mins) so that the teacher can begin at the correct level from day 1.

Do you teach children?
The 1on1 teaching method does work for children. We do have experience teaching children and have found that children learn best when learning with their friends and having fun. We have also had success teaching families with young children.

Do I have to do homework?
If there is no time to do homework – that is ok. However, the fastest way to progress is be properly prepared for class, to allow time after class to review what you have learned during class, and to practice new words and grammar in real life settings.

Do I need to be able to speak English?
English not being your first language should not necessarily be a barrier to learning Chinese. The textbooks we use generally give their vocabulary lists in Chinese and English, but with adequate preparation this should not present a problem. Some of our curriculum is also available in other languages.
If you are a complete beginner, and your spoken English is a little weak, then you may want to bring a friend to help you register for class, but after that your classes can be just in Chinese, with no need to use English.
