L C Chinese Language Center (Zhuhai)
- Delta Reviews:
Do you have a website? I would be interested in finding out your fee schedule.
David Perry here. I am planning on moving to Zhuhai in several weeks, hopefully. Your "L C Chinese Language Center for training Foreigners" sounds like a good idea for English-speaking expatriates, perhaps others too! How much does it cost to be involved with your organization? Let me know. Thanks.
Hi, could you please send me the schedule and fees for a Mandarin course in Zhuhai? I am a dutch engineer living in Zhuhai untill at least july 2011.
I met with Xian Wei and Sophia for about an hour and came away very impressed. I am an engineer and also have a business degree, I am 43 and have lived in a few other countries. Similar to many other people, I speak more than one language, so have a good idea of how to learn, where I am at in the language learning process and what immediate and long term goals I have. Suffice to say, Xian had similar ideas and also spoke english well enough to be able to design a program where I can learn advanced engineering, construction and business language. I have been unable to find this anywhere else. I recommend at least meeting with Xian and his staff.
I am living in Zhuhai for the next year and I would very much like to hear more about your schedule for the mandarin/cantonese classes and how much the fee is.
PS: I wrote my email adress for the comment, so I think you have it now?
what is your e-mail or phone number :i will call you
I am a student of the LC Chinese Language Center. I am very satisfied. The teachers Mr. Qian and Sophia are very patient, friendly and helpful. Learning Chinese is not easy, but at this school I really enjoy it. I can only recommend you.
I've recently started to learn Chinese whith Qian & Sophia and I love it.
Qian is teaching me written Chinese and is doing a great job of making it look a lot simpler than I expected. It all starts making sense and I'm confident that I will not only learn to read & write but also be fairly comfortable with it all.
Sophia is concentrating on spoken Chinese and shows a lot of patience whilst I'm twisting my tones :)
Both are very friendly and efficient. Altogether a great way to learn. Highly recommended!
I'm also interested in the classes; please send me your schedule also.
Could you send me a schedule too?
Hi and thank you teachers,
Since more than one year, I was trying to learn Mandarin myself and began to be disheartened. Since three weeks, I make unexpected headway with Sophia and Mr Chian shows me that learning to read and write chinese could be pleasant even for stupid lazy elderly people like me. If I add that after courses I can revise my German, you can understand that I warmly recommand this school.
Wow ! I am an American and have been a student at the school in Zhuhai. I have traveled and worked in China since 1991, but my Mandarin never got much better until I went to this school for several weeks and daily classes.
Both Qian and Sophia are great teachers. I have had private lessons before, but being with them was so much better. When I attended, the school was only a few students. I think its growth is because of its quality.
If you are looking for good, friendly and trustworthy teachers, go to LC. They adapted my classes to fit my needs - basic reading for menus, asking for food and having social discussions about family, work and interests.
One thing I liked the best are the friends I made there with other students. Qian and Sophia try to be sure there is a family environment and introduced me to many of the other students. We got together for some beer and karoake, so it really made my stay in Zhuhai alone much more fun.
Zai Jian !
I've been there from last year february to this year,
for my year off from my job in germany.
I've seen another school before i started and it seemed to be a little bit to straight there for me.
Good decision i made. Qian and Sophia are really good teachers and great persons.
One thing i will miss most when i be back in germany-Going to school!
My Teachers from back when i was young wouldn't trust their eyes,
seeing me writing this!
I had been studying Chinese oral and writing lessons with Mr. Qian, Sophia and Lucy for the past four months and I would say that I immensely enjoyed learning from them. They are very patient to their students and very flexible with the class schedule as well. I already studied with them for almost 50 hours already and I would say my Chinese vocabulary/character recognition has increased compared to studying by myself alone. You will not only learn the rudimentary skills in speaking/writing Chinese but you will also have the chance to experience the diverse cultures of China. They offer a free Saturday session called the Chinese Saloon wherein you can learn Chinese games, sing some famous Chinese songs and listen to Chinese musical instruments played live in front of you.
Now only if I can find Chinese locals who are as patient as them then my Chinese learning would be a breeze. So they say practice makes you perfect. Deliberate practice, that is.
I would definitely recommend LC Chinese Language Center to foreigners here in Zhuhai.
I am a foreign teacher from New York that currently resides in Harbin, but I will be moving to Zhuhai at the end of August 2012. I will be an English teacher for a minimum of one year in Zhuhai and hope to learn Mandarin (tried in Harbin, but the lessons were poorly structured). Please email me a schedule with prices. Thank you!
I've been studying at the LC Center for about six months now, taking classes in both oral Mandarin and Chinese characters. Sophia and Qian are both excellent teachers. They've adjusted to the pace I'm comfortable with in my tutoring sessions and have worked hard to make my class time valuable for me. They've kept my class times consistent when I've needed that, but have also been flexible when my schedule's been crazy. I highly recommend the LC Center to foreigners living in Zhuhai and wanting to learn Mandarin!
Thanks, Sophia and Qian for your patience, friendship, and help with the wonderful Chinese language!
I´m an Icelander living in Zhuhai for the next year and I would really like to hear more about your schedule for the mandarin/cantonese classes and how much the fee is.
I’ve just finish my Chinese classes in LC language Center. One month almost every day I just wait the time when I will go to have my class, cause it’s not just about learning every time you have very interesting and enjoyable conversation, discover new facts about China: life, culture, history. Also I can share some interesting stories about my country, but I speak Chinese!
Mr. Qian and Sophia are really great. Very professional, with good organization, adapt your needs and really exceed expectations.
When my parents will come to Zhuhai I will definitely send them to LC center to learn Chinese language!
Thank you very much and will miss you!
I began private classes with Sophia and Qian as soon as I moved to Zhuhai. LC prices are very reasonable and they always work hard to adjust classes according to my schedule. They are very patient teachers who never seems to tire of repeating the same word over and over for you until you get it right. More than wonderful teachers, they quickly became friends- meeting up before class for lunch to show me Chinese cuisine, bringing me to local markets to shop for furniture items, helping me bargain with a seamstress, getting me a bus pass, and then months later taking me to the police station after I was pickpocketed on the bus!
When we go over vocabulary, Qian is always sure to teach phrases associated with those new words. He also can explain the derivation of radicals and characters from their historical evolution as a pictogram to the modern-day character. These explanations have not only been very entertaining (like a mini-history lesson), but they have been essential in helping me recall how to write/read particular characters. Sophia challenges me to increase the fluidity of my speech and perfect my tones through extended discussions. Both have helped my listening comprehension by speaking at a normal speed and only slowing down if I don't understand after several attempts. We go over the grammar after reading text, so I can quickly incorporate new sentence structures into my daily conversations. My speaking, reading, writing and listening ability have all dramatically improved in just six months. Xie xie LC!
I highly recommend learning Chinese at LC! Qian always has a new and different story to help me remember the characters, making it fun and easier than I would have imagined. He also treats me to local flavors, like "tofu brain" and tea. I've even enjoyed his personal tour of the market, bookstore and more. If you're looking for a place to really enjoy Chinese lessons, try this school!
I enjoy going to LC Chinese Language School. It surprises me all the time how patient Qian is with repeating things over and over because I have forgotten or just don't get it right. It is a great place to study/explore the Chinese Language (written and spoken) and Culture. One can see and experience that Qian loves to teach :-)
