Chinese standard course

In Mitoyo we know how hard it is to balance work with studies. That’s why we count with a broad range of lessons at different times to better meet the student’s availability. Our methodology is based in the standards marked by HANBAN (the headquarters of the Confucious Institute), an institute in charge of the standardization of teaching and learning Chinese (mandarin), as well as the daily experience with our students. Through our courses we want to meet the demands that the cultural interest awakens both through the language and the Chinese culture and we also want to provide our students with the necessary background to pass the official HSK exams. All thanks to a great native staff with experience teaching Chinese and who are specialized in the challenges of a Spanish-speaking-student.

Which book do we use?

In Mitoyo, for the beginner levels we use the book Hanyu: Chino para hispanohablantes. This book divides the content into big topics to include various linguistic functions so that learning Chinese becomes an easier task and we ourselves realize of what we are capable of. As you probably already know, one of the biggest problems when starting Chinese is that we aren’t used to the Chinese characters. Don’t be afraid, with Hanyu most of the content is written in pinyin, that is to say, Chinese written in Latin characters. With this system, reading and writing will become an easier task and we will be able to learn more efficiently and constantly.
