Learning the language is the best way for people to understand the
culture and customs of a country. China Culture Center (CCC) is a

The curriculum, custom- designed for expatriates and travelers in
Beijing, focuses on easily studying Chinese in a dynamic environment

to master the language and also have fun in class. We emphasize practicing
speaking skills; not only in the class but also outside. Students
are encouraged to talk freely about a variety of topics about real
life situations and all aspects of Chinese culture and modern society.

We have three main teaching methodologies: direct, dynamic and flexible
which we will always carry throughout the whole teaching process to
ensure that every participant can learn easily and fast.
We teach precise and standard mandarin that is commonly used in daily
life and we directly correct pronunciation and grammar mistakes as
often as the students make them.
Students are fully encouraged to speak and interact with teachers.

language practice time and is never bored
