Excellent team and teachers
Our lessons are designed and prepared by a team. When you are in the class, you are actually experiencing the wisdom of whole team.
All of our courses are designed by a senior teacher who has been teaching Chinese in China and New Zealand over 20 years. She tailors the coursed on the basis of a variety of popular text books, and makes them suitable for learners in New Zealand.
In addition, GCE teachers speak standard Mandarin and fluent English. Some of them are even able to speak a third language fluently. They not only have rich experience in teaching Mandarin to speaker with different linguistic background, but also highly educated. They are Chinese native speakers trained in New Zealand, and have Masters Qualifications. As a team, our teachers meet regularly (teaching conference) for on-going training and discussion to make sure that all teachers use the most practical and effective Mandarin teaching methods and materials.
Professional teachers design personal study plans for you.
We will develop a curriculum for you based on your level of Chinese learning. In this way, you will maximize the amount that you learn in the short time you learn Mandarin here. You can tell us whatever you want to learn. Before starting the lessons, you will have a talk with your teacher so that the teacher can prepare the lessons according to your requirements and preference.
GCE is notified by International Chinese Language Teachers Association (ICA)
As a trusted member of International Chinese Language Teachers Association, we are authorised to train Chinese language teachers and issue ICA certificate.
Enjoy learning Chinese in a vibrant and pleasant community
Other language centres, they either have dozens of different languages, which makes them less professional, or focus on teaching the second generation of Chinese immigrants. We, instead of, are dedicated to Chinese teaching and training for learners with different needs. All of our courses are strongly related to Chinese language and culture, such as Business Chinese and Chinese for tourism.
Every Saturday we provide learners with a free open lesson. We hold two classes at the same time. One is for beginners, the other one is for intermediate learner. Our learners will have opportunities to practice what they have learned, and meet other learners. After all nothing beats practice.
