General Chinese language courses at International House Xi’an focus on learning through communication and practicing real-life Chinese both in and out of the classroom. We believe in an integrated approach to language learning, incorporating speaking, writing, reading, listening, grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary into every lesson with particular emphasis on practicing language in depth through conversation.

Communication is the key to learning and using Chinese well. Therefore, our classes focus strongly on developing students’ communication skills in all areas and learn useful Chinese.

Fun and practical usage are also highly important, which is why our 20-lesson-a-week program includes a weekly elective classes focusing on Chinese in Xi’an, whether this involves learning Chinese through studying current news items, the history of Xi’an or through Broadway theater. Students choose to study with IH Xi’an because they want to learn Chinese and have a great China experience. And with our IH Xi’an elective classes we bring this experience alive by bringing Xi’an into the classroom!

For students who want to supplement their Chinese Language Studies with private tuition to accelerate their progress, we also offer Private One-to-One Classes. You can choose to study privately with an experienced and highly qualified teacher for as few or as many hours as you need.

We offer five levels of General Chinese Classes: Beginner, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate and Advanced Chinese.

As a student at IH Xi’an, you can attend classes from 1 week to as many weeks as you would like. The maximum number of students per class is just 14 – all our classes sizes are small – and the minimum age for the courses is 18. Chinese Courses are 20 lessons per week, and you can combine classroom tuition with Private One-to-One Lessons. Each of our Intensive 25 Courses is 25 Teaching Hours (a Teaching Hour is 45 minutes long) in length.
