Why this program?

We are committed to helping you succeed inside and outside of the classroom to learn to speak mandarin!

Our teachers make sure you get the most out of every class by giving you one-on-one attention and maximizing your opportunities to practice in natural conversation.

We help you plan your courses and assignments around your other commitments. We also offer after-class support to help you with homework questions.

Lakeside is more than a bunch of classrooms and teachers. We are a community of learners, professionals, and China enthusiasts. We help our students connect with a community that shares their goals and interests. Every week, we organize fun and educational activities where students can connect, relax,  learn to speak mandarin and find out more about the world beyond the classroom!

Do you have a language question, a homework problem, or just a tricky grammar point that needs more practice? No worries! Students are invited to drop by for coffee and one-on-one Chinese language assistance during our daily Office Hours.

We can work around your schedule! Group classes meet in the mornings, afternoons, or evenings. Need even more flexibility? No problem! Private classes can be scheduled anytime between 9:30 and 20:00, and can be rescheduled as needed with 24 hours of notice.
