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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why can I not study in a small group class?

Your needs will most likely be very different from any other student, making a group class no use to anyone.

However, if there is a student you study with and you know you have a very similar level, and you wish to study together, we can arrange this.

Would a Chinese Homestay family be of use to me?

It would be yes because it would expose you to even more Mandarin.

A lot of success with Mandarin is defined on what you do outside the classroom so this could be an option for you if you wish.

Can I still meet other students at LTL?

Absolutely. One thing we have always carried from our early days to now is a tight-knit, family community. We want LTL to be your 2nd home. Mixing with students is a huge part of that.

I don’t have time to study full-time, can you help me create a personalised part time course?

Yes of course. Everyone has different schedules and at LTL we are open 365 days of the year.

If you want to partake in a morning, evening or even weekend program, we will help you get this setup.
