Wen Hua Mandarin has a decade old root starting in 2006 when the founder started mandarin training courses in Jakarta, Indonesia. During the last decade, we have taught thousands of students who have successfully reached their goals both in academic and business world.

The advent of video teleconference opens the possibility of learning beyond borders. It also shifts the learning model of language courses. While physical appearance of a teacher is the most ideal model, the teleteaching model sees significant improvements making it a viable alternative.

Given the above, we pivot our traditional classroom based Mandarin course into specialize in providing 1 to 1 or group Chinese tutoring services on language centers and online.

Our goal is to bring the beauty of the Chinese language, via the Internet, to students worldwide at a cost-effective price. We realized that some customers enjoy learning Chinese online, from the comfort of their home, office, or premise, with their own personal tutor. We offer the convenience of learning Chinese from any part of the world that has a connection to the Internet.

We welcome students, businesses, family, and children to try out lessons from one of our native speaking Chinese tutors.

Our tutors are based in China and the rest of the world.

How does it work?
Well, first you register for a trial session where you can see tutor’s schedule and book a date & time that works for you. Then the tutor will confirm his/her availability for the lesson. Once tutor confirms his/her availability, show up on Skype at specified date & time and enjoy the lesson!

How to make it work?

Taking Chinese lessons through Skype is a convenient and flexible way to learn Mandarin Chinese with native teachers. However, there are considerations that you need to evaluate on it.

1. Internet Connection

Learning from a quality instructor is easy in a quiet classroom environment. What if you had static in your ears, words cutting out or not being able to see what was being taught? Make sure you have an adequate internet connection on your Skype Chinese lessons that’s reliable so you won’t miss any part of your classes due to a dropped call.

2. Free Trial Class

What you’re obviously looking for is the quality of the class, the professionalism of the teacher; their experience, education majors, etc. What is the teaching method the instructor uses along with their preferred style? When you satisfactorily pass the class and the teacher’s expectations, will the teacher commit to working with you on regular classes? You should also check to see if there is a study plan to follow after your trial class is completed.

3. Booking Policy

You should check to see how long you can book the Skype Chinese lessons for in total. Also, how many hours in advance you will have to cancel or reschedule the class without a penalty being applied.

4. Flexibility

Many of us lead busy lives with work, family and fun. What is the time you’re willing to commit to doing this? Sometimes you might have a completely open schedule while others will leave you just enough time to look at the lesson and when your work is due. Be certain to check the class information to see if there are weekly or monthly minimum participation requirements you must meet for satisfaction of the class.

5. Validation

How long do you have to complete the Skype Chinese lessons? A month, a year, or no validation at all. It’s up to you to choose the frequency for each week that you want to participate at.

6. Good Support

Should it be all about the classroom? No, if there are concerns or questions about the certification or if a technical issue occurred, how are you going to get those questions answered. A support team behind the class to help you is key for a good learning experience.

7. Refund policy

Sometimes things happen and you’re not able to commit to the class schedule as you planned, emergencies or work or life can conspire to get in the way and having the option to cancel and receive a refund or credit applied to a future class is something you should know in advance in case you need to cancel and not be surprised with non-refundable fees or charges.

8. What is your goal?

Everyone knows there can be a difference between ‘classroom language’ and ‘street language’. Are you interested in a formal education with an instructor that will walk you through every detail and nuance of the Chinese language? Do you only need a native speaker to coach you through practicing your spoken Chinese for an acting part or Firefly convention? The costs and time involved obviously are different so knowing how much you need to or want to learn is important.
