“I took classes at Hutong School as part of a small group. Our teacher was fantastic. My general impression was that Hutong School is serious about providing top-notch education and generating some really satisfied customers.” Frederik G.
All of our teachers are native Mandarin speakers with a minimum of 2 years teaching experience. They’ve all successfully passed an intensive training period and undergo a monthly evaluation. Each member of our teaching team has achieved a degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, has a passion for sharing their knowledge and culture, and possess excellent interpersonal skills. Many have taught Chinese abroad, equipping them with a deep understanding of how to communicate and tailor classes to suit students from different backgrounds.
Based on 12+ years’ experience teaching Mandarin, the unique Hutong School teaching methodology has been proven to speed up the language learning process. By separating spoken Chinese from character recognition and promoting total immersion, we encourage students to start speaking from the very beginning. As you progress in spoken Chinese, you develop an understanding of the logic underpinning Chinese character construction and begin laying a solid foundation for character memorisation.
