Our methodology | Hutong School

Our Methodology

Based on 12+ years’ experience teaching Mandarin, the unique Hutong School 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 Beijing can learn using our 3-part textbook series or choose from a range of other quality learning materials. Outside of class, you can consolidate your learning with our interactive mobile app.
