Study duration
15 lessons of 2 hours. In addition, 60 hours of self-study is recommended. This course is intended for students who have basic or no knowledge of the Chinese language. The course covers all aspects of the Chinese language, such as listening, reading, speaking and writing skills.
Hybrid classes
You can also take this course online*. Hybrid education is a form of education in which ‘online’ and ‘in-class’ students sit together and thus simultaneously receive education in an educational environment. The hybrid course is therefore an online course that can also be taken from home. Especially suitable for when you live further away or can’t physically attend class every week.
*If you wish to follow the course online, choose ‘Online’ at your participation location.
In addition, the students will have access to our online learning platform where the teacher will make both the teaching materials and additional study materials available.
