MasterChina creates its own study materials, and syllabus, which are designed to quickly build students’ ability to communicate.
Our instruction covers basic to advanced level speaking, listening, reading and writing. We know our students have different aims, so we
are used to tailoring our programs for those interested in daily communication, business Chinese (including industry specific vocabulary)
and preparation for Mandarin proficiency exams (i.e. extra emphasis put on exam technique to speed up preparation effectiveness).
Our general teaching material presents the most essential, and hence useful, part of the language taught using a syllabus making use of
everyday situations as a backdrop for learning new grammar and vocabulary in an interesting, and engaging, way. In addition, this
approach has the added advantage that it allows students to begin to use their conversational Mandarin quickly and usefully.
Our professional editing team regularly review our range of teaching contexts, both adding and
modifying existing contexts to stay current with new trends and vocabulary. We are also proud to say that many of the contexts are
suggested by our students, demonstrating our commitment to a student led approach.
The teaching contexts used to deliver our syllabus are contained in our own series of textbooks called Communication Chinese,
written by MasterChina’s founder and head teacher. In comparison with other Chinese language textbooks, Communication Chinese
has proven itself more practical because it combines an academic, yet concise, understanding of grammar and syntax with
practical topics, local expressions and insightful explanations.
