IQ's Mandarin language courses

Almost a quarter of the world's population lives in China – and they all speak Chinese. But not all Chinese is the same: the Chinese or Sinitic language has several dialects. There are eight major Chinese dialect groups: Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese, Min, Jin, Xiang, Hakka/Kejia and Gan/Kan. Mandarin, which is spoken by around 875 million people, is the most widely spoken dialect, and the one taught in IQ's Chinese courses. To communicate in a country like China, it is not necessary to know all the dialects. Mandarin Chinese is a compulsory subject in Chinese schools. Chinese is a tonal language. In other words, speaking a word with different intonation changes its meaning. In our Mandarin language courses you can start learning Mandarin from scratch and continue until you have mastered the finer points of the language. Arrange your personal appointment!
