Chinese for Singaporeans – Chinese Classes in Singapore
Learning Chinese as a Singaporean is likely very different to a European learning Chinese.
As a Singaporean, you are exposed to Mandarin on a daily basis, whether it be spoken, in the streets, at restaurants. You will have the exposure of Chinese characters, the culture of Chinese etc. This is why we have a separate tailored course for Singapore locals.
These classes are all individual, which allows them to be tailored exactly how you want them to be, compared to a group course which follows a similar structure each time.
Here are a couple of examples how your experience of Mandarin as a Singaporean might be different.
- Student A – Speaks “kitchen Mandarin” but cannot communicate with friends and colleagues in various situations when they speak Mandarin
- Student B – Student B has parents who were born and raised in a Cantonese speaking environment. Therefore, student B is very familiar with characters but struggles with any sort of spoken Mandarin
- Student C – Student C studied English and Mandarin at school meaning the level of spoken Mandarin will likely than that of a student from the west who studied Mandarin at a university/high school due to their daily exposure of Mandarin in Singapore.
See how the situations can vary widely. This is a vast contrast from many westerners who come to study Chinese in Singapore who are more often at an earlier stage of studies and have had little exposure to any spoken or written Mandarin,
We’ll be sure to speak to you before signing up about your story and situation. After all, everyone is completely different, and this is what makes LTL so great, the uniqueness of each individual student.
