Character-Centred Theory

Unlike English, which uses many words, Chinese relies on around 2500 characters to construct its expansive vocabulary. Learning Chinese is akin to assembling Lego blocks. Thus, we employ the Bellassen approach, concentrating on character-based Teaching to facilitate a solid foundation.

Teaching from Diverse Angles

Breaking away from conventional memorization, we employ a multi-dimensional approach to listening comprehension that interlinks seemingly unrelated words. This method imparts a deeper understanding of Chinese, moving beyond surface-level learning to foster proper comprehension.
