As the most spoken language in the world, Mandarin is an essential language for many purposes, including business and travel. With Berlitz, our Mandarin classes focus not only on the pillars of the language, but also on the fundamentals for speaking the language. Mandarin is a tonal language, which makes the conversational, immersive language techniques used in the Berlitz Mandarin classes very important. You will speak and hear the language throughout every Mandarin class with a Berlitz-certified native instructor. This exposure to the language will help you gain confidence speaking, listening and understanding Mandarin in any real-world setting.

Cultural lessons are also included in every Mandarin class with Berlitz. With these lessons, you will understand the cultural nuances of using the language, as well as nonverbal language skills that will ensure you will make a good impression using the language with native speakers. This cultural element of the lessons can be just as important as the language skills you will gain.
