Chinese courses at LSI

An experienced team of German and native-speaking teachers teaches in the Chinese department with textbooks specially developed for the intensive course format. Chinese is used actively from the very beginning. Role-playing, discussions or the targeted use of media - varied lessons in small learning groups facilitate access to the language, strengthen motivation and make learning fun.

For all language levels

In our Chinese courses, the course units build systematically on each other, so that even advanced learners with previous knowledge can find a suitable course. We will be happy to advise you on which course is suitable for you.
