The liberty that comes with free afternoons makes this program an ideal combination of holiday and study.

Capital Mandarin School considers the Intensive Group General Chinese Course the best class to achieve fast results in learning the Chinese language while having fun. The group dynamics are often beneficial to the learning process, as the range of language and culture problems that can be discussed is broader due to the multiple experiences of a diverse set of students.
Since many of the students participating in this class are heading towards a language certificate, the classes focus on words and grammar that is requested for passing the HSK exams. However, even if you do not plan to take a test anytime soon, the words and grammar taught are the most frequently used in everyday formal and informal mandarin.
Intensive Chinese Language Course Mix (IM)
Course Description Set up: Group (3 lessons/morning) + Private (2 lessons/afternoon) Intensity: 50 minutes/lesson; 5 lessons/day; 5 days/week Focus: Spoken Daily schedule: 09:20-12:20 + 13:30-15:20 Course duration: 2-25 Weeks Location: Beijing, Gaobeidian Campus (Four stops from Guomao (Line 1+Batong line)
The Intensive Chinese Language Course Mix consists of three morning hours of group lessons from 09:30 until 12:20, as well as two afternoon hours of private lessons from 13:30 to 15:20, five days a week. The lesson focus in the afternoon will be decided between teacher and student, while morning lessons will focus on spoken Chinese.
The twenty five hour schedule and the private classes in the afternoon provide a very intensive study rhythm. Whereas the morning in the group set-up might be slightly more relaxing, the afternoon consists of applying and extending what was learnt in the group in the morning. However, the remaining day is still free for well earned leisure or evening discovery trips to Beijing’s hotspots.
The Intensive Mix class is ideal for students who want to progress in Chinese, but also want to keep flexibility and fun in their way of studying. Its pricing is significantly cheaper than an only 1-on-1 set up but still allows for fast progress in Mandarin. Intensive Mix Chinese does satisfy the goal and progress oriented side of Chinese learning without overstepping the budget.

Chinese level test HSK3: No more Pinyin!
Chinese is an ideographic writing language. Although on an elementary level (A1/HSK1, A2/HSK2) a student might make fast progress by focussing on oral communication, the intermediate and advanced level cannot be studied without written skills. Besides, reading, online-shopping, looking for places on a map and other simple daily task are so much simpler when you can read Chinese characters. Starting from HSK level 3, the Chinese language level-tests only use characters – no more Pinyin. Intermediate & advanced students need to know characters to be able to meet HSK requirements.
