BBC Chinese Communication Course is the most comprehensive Chinese language course in Malaysia that primarily focuses on understanding and speaking Mandarin Chinese. We have successfully developed a unique teaching system that will help you understand 70% of Mandarin Chinese in 4 months. You will see that you will ‘fall in love’ with Chinese communication from the first class and be more confident to speak Chinese to anyone, anytime and anywhere. In this course, you will learn:
- To understand 70% of Mandarin Chinese and start a conversation about practically anything
- How to understand and memorize 5,000+ of the most essential vocabulary and 1,000+ phrases that we commonly use
- How to read and write correct pinyin that will turn into correct Chinese characters when you type it in a computer/handphone
- Useful insights into Chinese culture and 'mindset'
This course is designed for teenagers (at least 13 years old) and adults who have no basic or some basic knowledge of Mandarin. No previous knowledge is required. However, if you have already studied some Chinese, it is still going to be very helpful to take this course since we are going to introduce very important concepts that you might have missed earlier.
Take note: This course is not suitable for those who already can speak fluent Mandarin. Class size is around 12 students only.
Students must be able to understand basic English in order to join the class. It would be better if students understand Malay as well, but it is not compulsory. The medium of communication in class is mainly English and sometimes Malay (whichever is easier for students to understand). In the first class, students will start speaking Mandarin already!
This course comprises of 30 hours of classroom training, 30 hours of VIP one-to-one online training and 20 hours of self-learning from exercises, audio & video files. The offline class is once a week for 2 hours and will be conducted at our offices in Seksyen 32, Shah Alam; Ara Damansara, Petaling Jaya; Setiawangsa , Kuala Lumpur; and Cybersquare, Cyberjaya. We have lectures, tutorials, quizzes, group discussions and presentations in every class. On top of that, we will sing Chinese songs in some classes
During VIP one-to-one online training, students have to submit the homework (>200 words essay) and send audio files via WhatsApp. The teacher will then inform the student where to take note and which corrections are to be made. The teacher will provide constructive feeback on the student's strength and weakness.
We believe that the first step towards teaching students to speak a language well is understanding proficiency. Great language teachers comprehend proficiency levels and teach their students about them. Once proficiency is the central focus of the classroom, grammar no longer reigns -- communication does. We spend time in the classroom on all modes of communication -- interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational. If the teacher is always speaking, the students are then not speaking. For students to achieve the communicative practice they need, the solution is simple: The less the teacher speaks, the more students do, and this is how we conduct BBC classes. We hope to see you in BBC class very soon!
Yes! After joining the class, all students are encouraged and required to speak Mandarin every day. If you have no friends or colleagues to practice with, you can always send a WhatsApp voice message to BBC teachers.
It is also important for students to do the homework given in every class. Students have to submit the homework and send voice messages to their BBC teacher every week. This will improve spoken Chinese significantly as BBC teachers will help you to start with using what you have learnt.
