Mandarin Courses

This course runs similarly to our Business English course. Most of the classes that we run are focused on vocabulary, as business terminology can be quite challenging for language learners to use, learn, and remember. Teachers will work with students to practise speaking, writing, listening, and reading in the varying levels of Mandarin.

Students will learn how to communicate in formal ways so as to prepare them for business meetings and trips with Chinese companies. Mock presentations, meetings, reports, emails, and phone calls will be integrated with the use of textbooks and other materials in order to provide students with a comprehensive education. Importantly, students will understand how business culture can differ from the country they are from, China, Taiwan, and Singapore.

Every day, we hear various languages being spoken as we walk along the streets of Singapore. Mandarin Chinese, being the second most widely spoken language in Singapore can be heard in hawker centres, schools, workplaces, and so on. At Alpha Language School, we want to bridge this language gap for expatriates residing in Singapore so that they can converse in Mandarin as they live and work here.

In essence, our General Chinese course is similar to its General English counterpart; students practise the four aspects of language learning (reading, writing, speaking, and listening). However, what is special about Alpha’s Chinese courses is the cultural aspect—we aim to give our students a better understanding of the unique position that Singapore holds in the Chinese-speaking world. We also target for our students to have an appreciation of the wide variety of Chinese languages and dialects, and the nuances between them.
