Study Chinese in Guangzhou with Expat Chinese. Our group courses are the perfect fit for you who wants to put 2 or more hours per week into learning Chinese and wants to study together with a motivated group of students.

We limit the number of students to 3 to 6 to ensure high-quality small-group teaching.

Expat Chinese offers Chinese lessons in Guangzhou both during the week and on weekends. Courses are being held at our Zhujiang New Town Center.

“I really like Expat Chinese’s teaching method. I also enjoy taking multiple, different classes with them. It helps to give me a more diverse view on the Chinese language because this way I not only study the grammar and vocabulary but also the history of the characters.”
