Our methodology | Hutong School

Our Methodology

Hutong School Amsterdam follows the same teaching methodology as our schools in China and around the world. Based on 12+ years’ experience teaching Mandarin, our unique teaching methodology has been proven to speed up the language learning process. By separating spoken Chinese from character recognition and promoting total immersion, we encourage students to start speaking from the very beginning. As you progress in spoken Chinese, you develop an understanding of the logic underpinning Chinese character construction and begin laying a solid foundation for character memorisation. 

We pride ourselves on our teaching quality, for which we’ve been awarded the iStudy Guide award for Educational Excellence. Students at Hutong School Amsterdam can learn using our 3-part textbook series or choose from a range of other quality learning materials.
