Study Mandarin

Our adult courses are made for everyone who are interested in learning Chinese language in Singapore, from beginners to advanced learners.

We normally recommend group classes as the best value for money as you get to practice and interact with other students.  For those needing a flexible schedule, we also have private classes available.

The courses will cover speaking, reading, writing and listening in the Chinese language. The beginning levels make use of Chinese Phonetics (Hanyu Pinyin) and the more advanced levels emphasise reading and writing Chinese characters.

Don’t worry if you are a complete beginner, our native speaking teachers will be there to guide you from the basics. Browse through the different types of courses to start your learning journey with Han Hai!  Our standard program of conversational Chinese is broken down into 4 levels: beginner, elementary, intermediate and advanced.  Each level is aligned to an HSK level, which is an internationally recognised qualification.

For students who have already achieved HSK level 6 and are interested in polishing their business Mandarin, check out our Business Chinese course.
