Mandarin is not exactly the easiest language in the world. Beginners must grapple with learning a wide variety of characters and the radicals which form these characters. It's a lot to learn, and it takes serious time! And yet, Mandarin is the third most studied language in the world behind English and Spanish. That's because of the appeal and utility of improving your level of Chinese speaking. Let's look at some of the reasons why people learn Chinese:
Already been convinced that it's time for you to receive an education in Mandarin? Let's explore some of the options for someone in Sydney, Australia to learn Chinese.
A language school is a very fine place to learn. The teachers are highly qualified and have a lot of experience, they are usually native speakers of the language being taught and they are adept at communicating more complicated concepts in the language in English, for students to quickly grasp the main features of the language.
Although these courses are often quite costly, they are undoubtedly some of the most engaging and quick ways to improve your level in any language. They are also a great way to meet a group of like-minded young people to share your language-learning journey with. Let's look at some of the Mandarin schools Sydney has to offer...
The course offered by the University of Sydney is an intensive course tailored for beginners of Chinese. This will introduce 180 vocabulary items and teach you how to have a basic conversation in Mandarin. This is a great place to start, especially if you are already enrolled in a course at University of Sydney and can receive credits towards your degree by learning Chinese as an elective.
Another great place to take Chinese classes at Sydney Community College. Like University of Sydney, their course is tailored to those with no prior experience speaking Mandarin (beginners) and teaches them the essentials. A 20 hour course with them is priced very competitively at $300 AUD and the classes are done online via Zoom for the time being.
They have courses via zoom running: Tue 2 Feb 2021 - Tue 6 Apr 2021, Thu 22 Apr 2021 - Thu 24 Jun 2021, Tue 13 Jul 2021 - Tue 14 Sep 2021 and Thu 7 Oct 2021 - Thu 9 Dec 2021.
Superprof is a tutoring website that allows would-be students of any skill to search a catalogue of private tutors and contact the one who they think will be great for them. You can do this with Chinese lessons, or any other language for that matter. Just search your query on Superprof’s Australian website and you will find many results from your local area. To contact your tutor and book a lesson, you will have to pay Superprof’s $39 Student Pass subscription. This gives you access to the contact details of as many teachers as you wish to get in touch with. Not just for Mandarin, but for anything you want to learn.
If you don’t find a teacher who is teaching the skills you want to learn, you will not be charged for anything. Many tutors offer their first lesson for free. This allows you to get to know them, invite them into your home (online or face-to-face), and see if they are the right tutor to teach you going forward. Superprof is a fun, secure, and cost-effective way to take a class in just about anything! Just read the profiles of our great Mandarin teachers and see if one fits the bill!
The good thing about learning Chinese from the East Coast of Australia (UTC +11:00) is that the time difference to Beijing (UTC +08.00) is only 3 hours. This means that your classes will likely be conveniently timed for both you and your Mandarin tutor in China. For example, if you took Zoom classes from Sydney at 5pm, the time would be 2pm in Mainland China. When there are no daylight savings in Sydney, Australia there is only 2 hours difference between Beijing (UTC +08:00) and Sydney (UTC +10:00). How good is that!
This school offers group classes online taught by a native Chinese speaker in Mainland China. In Beijing time, the schedule for their upcoming classes is:
Beginner Class: 4-week part-time course (4 hours/week), Mon & Wed 18:00 - 20:00 (Beijing Time)
Conversational Class: 4-week part-time course (4 hours/week), Tue & Thu 18:30 - 20:30 (Beijing Time)
One of the best sites for online Mandarin courses is Amazing Talker. Here, you can find a native Chinese speaker, often a university student who has experience teaching Mandarin as a second language, and they will be your Chinese teacher for a very reasonable rate. The classes will be done online through Zoom or Skype, as organised between you and your tutor. These classes are appropriate for any level, and the lessons are fun and flexible! Take your classes Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Sat or any day for as many hours as you like! Classes timetables are negotiated between teacher and student.
With all these great options, such as language school, online zoom courses, classes with a private tutor where you choose your own hours, as well as student-to-student peer learning/teaching, there are so many options for someone in Sydney wanting to learn Mandarin!
Read the profile of a teacher you like online and contact them to begin your Chinese education! Tell them what days you want to take class, for example, Tue, Thu and Sat. Tell them what hours are easiest for you. Whether they're in Australia or in China, chances are the time will fit conveniently for you and your tutor. Chinese courses are useful and abundant, so get on Zoom, or go to a language school to get started today!
