As soon as you accept a teaching position with us, you can start learning Chinese! You will be given access to our online learning platform, Chinesetown, where you can book your first class and keep learning throughout your stay with EF English First. Chinese classes are held for all levels from Beginner to Advanced, and you can even switch to face-to-face classes when you arrive.
Check the steps below to get started!
The difficulty of the lessons are increased by level in the following order: Survival – Beginner – Elementary – Intermediate – Advanced
Each lesson is built upon the previous vocabulary, grammar and sentences. If this is your first time learning Chinese, we strongly suggest that you finish a complete level of lessons before you move on to a more advanced level. Click here to find lessons in each level.
