At EMW IMMERSIONS we feel that there is no "magic pill" for learning a new language. We feel that hard work on the part of the student, coupled with quality instructors and a developed curriculum is the only way to truly master a language. With this in mind we designed our classes to allow for maximum student interaction, allowing opportunities to both practise and question what you have learned. By having very small class sizes and by involving the student in class activities we create an intimate, friendly and interesting environment where students are not afraid to take risks or to try something new. We also use a well rounded approach in our classes, following the idea that we should crawl before we run, and that babies speak before they read and write; our classes focus on listening and speaking, especially in the lower levels, and then introduce and focus more on reading and writing as the classes progress.
All of our teachers have university degrees and are trained, qualified teachers; in fact, the majority of our teachers not only have an education degree, but a specialised
Teaching Chinese to Foreigners degree. All of our teachers are young, late 20s. We find that this younger generation of teachers are more open to creative teaching methods as well as working with foreign students. They are much less rigid in their teaching and do not rely on rote instruction the way some Chinese schools do. Despite their young ages they all have years of experience teaching. Many of our teachers come from northeast
Mandarin and Cantonese classes
