Benefits of our Mandarin Chinese classes:
• Classes that focus on practical, conversational skills
• Unique “Mandarin Building Blocks” approach to learning
• Option to learn writing (simplified or traditional characters)

We also offer instruction in Spanish, French, Japanese, Italian, German, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, and Farsi among other languages.

Teaching Methods:

• This means students actively use what they are learning through role play, dialogue, and responding to picture prompts and other techniques to make sure students are actively Chinese in an authentic way.

Our Mandarin Chinese Teachers:
• Carefully vetted to choose the most lively and effective teachers, ABC Mandarin Chinese teachers are among the best of the Bay Area. They are all native speakers and experienced instructors.

• Making sure you learn “real-life Chinese” is the goal, not just “book Chinese”. This is why you will find yourself chatting in Chinese from day one as your teacher guides you through the material and you interact with your classmates. Our teachers know how to utilize a variety of methods, so that no matter what kind of learner you are, the lessons are effective for you.

• Our teachers are native speakers with a minimum of 2 years teaching experience.  Favoring a “communicative” method to teaching, ABC carefully selects teachers who know how to use this and other effective methods to get their students interacting using Chinese actively.
