Thank you very much for visiting our website and welcome to Chinese learning with Language School Yang.
We are a leading school for Chinese language and offer Chinese lessons (Mandarin and Cantonese) at all levels for adults and children in the region of Zurich. Our teachers are professional and have a lot of experience in language teaching.
Our school has four modern and fully equipped classrooms available for teaching at our premises at Kalkbreitestrasse 69 in Zurich. Besides language teaching, we also offer opportunities for our students to better understand Chinese culture. Cultural activities, such as Chinese calligraphy workshop, Chinese New Year party, Chinese movie evening and dinner get-together at Chinese restaurants, are organized regularly and are open to all students. In addition, our library has a good collection of Chinese language learning materials and books on the culture and history of China. Students are most welcome to borrow books from the library.
You can choose between group classes and private classes.
The group classes usually take place once a week in the evenings and last 90 minutes. For efficient learning, the number of students per class is usually limited to 8. We are offering group classes from level A1 (beginner) to C1 (professional). New beginner courses are offered on a regular basis. The instruction language of most group classes is German, a few group classes are offered in English. Once students have progressed beyond the first beginner level, Chinese instruction is used whenever possible. Our teaching material is available in German as well as in English.
The price for a 90-minute group class is CHF 45.-. Each module consists of ten to fifteen 90-minute lessons. People with prior knowledge of Chinese may join existing classes at any time. Please just contact us. We would gladly provide you with information to help you find a suitable class.
Private classes are tailored to individual student’s requirements. Our school has different teaching materials to suit your needs and lesson time is organized according to your schedule. Prices for private classes are as follows:
– 60 minutes: CHF 100.-
– 90 minutes: CHF 130.-
There is a 10% discount for each 10-lesson package paid in advance.
For your kids, we offer special language programmes starting at the age of 3 years.
Want to give it a try? For private classes we offer a 45-minute trial lesson for CHF 20.-.
Chinese Conversation Table
On a regular basis we are organizing a Chinese Conversation Table meet-up in order to practice the language together. Everybody who has some basic knowledge in Chinese (Mandarin) is welcome to join. The meeting is chaired by Debby who has been Chinese teacher in Switzerland for 10 years. Each time she will prepare some specific topics as a base for discussions and will also introduce some vocabulary and useful expressions. After this introduction everybody of the group will have plenty of chances for practicing conversation in this relaxed surrounding. For each Conversation Table meet-up some snacks and drinks are prepared.
If you are interested in learning Chinese, please contact us by e-mail or phone. We are very much looking forward to hearing from you.
