Join SSC’s REAL, FAST, EASSCChinese language course!

How much?

£180 for 12 week course.


At SSC, you do NOT learn in the traditional “grammar-first” way.

At traditional language schools, you learn from textbooks, and you learn the rules of the language, NOT the language itself.

On the SSC Chinese course, you do NOT hear or speak any English.  You listen to and speak ONLY Chinese, right from the very first lesson. This means that you learn to use the language FAST.

Listening to and using only Chinese means that there is no interference from English. Different languages run on different ‘tracks’, and if you use English, the tracks run into each other and the different languages crash. If you use only one, Chinese, track, it’s EASSCY to learn!

You can easily understand the Chinese you learn from the video that presents the new language.  You can also see a written translation in English on the screen. This translation will be in small print, and you encouraged to use it ONLY WHEN NECESSARY.  You should use Chinese as much as possible, not English!

At SSC you also learn from native Chinese teachers. This means you learn the REAL pronunciation and the REAL language as used by native Chinese speakers.  You do NOT learn “textbook” Chinese.

You also have an integrated self-study program that allows you to study as much as you want to between class sessions.  This means that you maximise learning and minimise class time and cost.

Watch Youtube video of Japanese course to see how you will be able to speak Chinese after just one class session!
