Frequently Asked Questions

It’s easy to learn Mandarin as a beginner, as you will be learning the very simple phonetic system, which composes only 490 syllabus! That’s why our Beginner students are the most proud of their achievements of their 0 to 1 step in just 10 to 20 lessons.

In your future total language skill training, it gets more challenging. But we know how to help you get there in each step.

Good question! If you are taking a part time learning approach with PM, we say 80 lessons upon completion of Intermediate course to achieve daily fluency. That could be 80 weeks or shorter if you chose to start with intensive beginner courses.

For an independent speaker level of fluency, we say two years upon completion of Upper Intermediate course. Be a good student, and we will get you there!

You can find the curriculum of each course on the respective course page online.

Each course we are using a textbook to set the curriculum, currently it’s Discover China for Beginner courses, and HSK Standard textbooks for Level 2 onwards, BCT Chinese for Business courses, and in house developed material for Advanced Business course, and all other short courses.

Of course not! Textbooks just help PM to set the curriculum.

In our classes, you will spend 80% of the learning time practising your language fluency skills with our training modules. Presentations, videos, activities, worksheets, and games are designed into our teaching plans, our classes are Students Centred.

PM’s philosophy is language is for communication, via adopting active learning, tasked based training approach.

Each level has different training modules to reflect the language skills in use. Beginner is foundation and survival context, Elementary is conversation flow, Intermediate is story telling, Upper Intermediate is independent speaker fluency.

Our main center is in the City, close to Monument statin by the river, where our headoffice team works from. We hold 70% of our classes here for all levels.

The other center is near Charing Cross, with an excellent transport links, and very close to China Town! This venue will suit students working and living in the west.

We are also in the process of setting up a third center in Canary Wharf to run our Business Chinese courses.

We run our Total Fluency group classes Monday to Thursday evenings between 6:30pm to 8:30pm, and all day Saturdays.

If the timing for our group classes do not suit you, you might like to consider private tutoring. We have tutors available any time, seven days a week.

Our lessons are priced at £30 per two hour lesson, each course is either 10 or 12 lessons, you do the math. Advanced HSK 5 and 6, and Business classes are priced at £36 per two hour lesson.

It’s a course subscription model, ie we don’t accept pay-as-you-go, you will need to subscribe to a term of the course, either 10 or 12 lessons. If you join an ongoing course after its start date, you just need to subscribe for the remaining lessons.

We know sometimes life got in the way. So don’t worry, with any group classes that you missed you will be able to attend a FREE mark up lesson with a different group (subject to availability).

Alternative options would be private make up lessons via Skype or One to One, or home study with teaching material provided. What’s more, our online platform will be opened to students next year.
