Online Mandarin Chinese Classes
Language is human. That’s why all Culture Yard's online Mandarin classes are real-time, live with instructors and classmates. We believe in learning Chinese by communicating, understanding the cultural context, and supporting each other through a warm and encouraging community.
We believe that you can't learn Chinese by repetition and memorization only. Instead, our teachers will encourage you to ask questions, have real conversations and introduce the cultural context in which the language is used. Meet our teachers, who will share their passion for the Chinese language and culture with you.
“I've been taking Chinese classes online with Culture Yard for about two months. My teacher is so much fun and does a great job of keeping her students engaged through explanations of history of characters, and even jokes! She also explains grammar concepts in thoughtful ways and uses additional resources, not just the textbook.”

“Studying at Culture Yard has enhanced my expat experience tenfold. It is so satisfying when a local Beijinger smiles with joy when you can communicate with them in Chinese… The teaching style is geared toward Western learning standards, which makes learning accessible. No drills, no rote memorization. Instead, the gifted teachers are patient and teach practical communication skills. Culture Yard’s technique and attitude are second to none. Highly recommend!”

“Fantastic school that provides a high standard level of education. I’ve finished the beginner level in 1 month and already am able to understand the basics and can arrange some things in a restaurant. Definitely will go for a few more levels to improve my Chinese language skills.”

We at Culture Yard are a community. Through our online Chinese classes, students forge friendships with people from all over the world. Teachers, staff, and classmates come together via WeChat in our large school group as well as smaller class groups to practice Chinese, keep each other accountable for homework, share Chinese learning resources, and offer encouragement.
