Mandarin Chinese Class Size Options 

The core language classes in all our teaching institutions incorporate every aspect of the Mandarin Chinese including phonetics, listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, and comprehension. 

You can choose to have private 1-on-1 tailor made classes or join a small group class with an average of 4 to 5 students per class as offered by the PRC-CIE Academy.  There is also the additional option of attending a larger class with an average of 20 students as offered by one of our partnering universities.

All of the schools use outstanding teaching materials and classes are taught by qualified instructors; but the smaller class settings often enable students to progress faster due to the smaller teacher-student ratio.

Smaller Versus Larger Mandarin Chinese Language Class Sizes

The PRC-CIE Academy was established to meet students demand for high quality Mandarin Chinese language instructions within an accelerated learning environment offering smaller class settings and flexible start dates.  The Academy employs teachers from our top partnering universities while using outstanding curriculum that helps students learn Chinese quickly, effectively and efficiently. 

The smaller classes averaging 4 to 5 students (with a maximum of 8) per class is the preferred choice by most students, as it offers a much more intensive and faster paced learning environment than the university classes which generally have up to 20 students per class. 

PRC Study also represents many Chinese universities in China offering outstanding Mandarin Chinese language instructions.  The university programs are generally preferred by students looking for a larger campus atmosphere and a long standing reputation.  But please note class sizes are larger, averaging 20 students per class, depending on the school of choice.
