 Spires' Chinese tutoring FAQs

Why study Chinese?

China is an economic superpower. The country's economy is now the second largest in the world after the US and continues to grow at 8-10% per year. A good reason to learn Chinese is the ability to communicate with the country's 1.4 billion inhabitants. More than 90% of China, or about 790 million people, speak Mandarin. This means that learning Chinese will open doors for you to the world's most populous nation and the world's most lucrative market.

Chinese is one of the most difficult languages to learn and translate. This makes knowledge of the Chinese language so valuable. Moreover, learning Chinese can be a rewarding experience for travellers who want to connect with the roots of a completely different culture steeped in ancient tradition, but at the forefront of the global economy.

What university degrees is Chinese useful for?

If you have studied Chinese and have mastered this wonderful language, then you can apply for a Bachelor's degree with a focus on Chinese politics, economics, history or archaeology. But not only that, you can also pursue a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Chinese linguistics. 

In addition, you can also use your Chinese skills for all kinds of university degrees in China, if you were to pursue study abroad opportunities.

What careers can studying Chinese lead to?

Studying Chinese can lead to a variety of careers as so many companies do business there in one sector or another. It is very likely that in the globalised world, there will be increasing opportunities for people who speak languages other than English. 

China has become a huge market and business leaders are looking for people who can successfully navigate Chinese culture. You may be giving yourself a future-facing advantage in life. Secondly, there are many jobs for teachers who are fluent in both English and Chinese. So you can either teach English to Chinese students or Chinese to English students. 

Finally, you can also work as a translator or Chinese linguistics specialist for government agencies and other private institutions.

How do Chinese classes help with business?

There is an increasing need for senior and management staff who speak Chinese, and it is unlikely to slow. If you work in a larger corporate organisation you could become a very valuable employee if you are fluent in both Chinese and English. Learning Chinese will enable you to communicate and do business with literally billions of people you may not be able to otherwise, that is a lot of opportunities.

How expert Chinese tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

Why Choose Spires’ Tutoring?

We only hire 4% of the teachers that apply to Spires and they are all professional and experienced school and university level educators. Many have qualifications from top universities and institutions in the UK, USA, and around the world. All have a Ph.D., MSc, Ma, BSc, or Ba in their chosen field.

We have a lot of repeat students and you can check out the high star ratings our clients leave. 

Because tutors set their rates via an auction system, our prices are more competitive than many other companies. Our online classroom is stable and fun to learn through. It has an interactive whiteboard and students can access recordings of classes at any time. They use webcam video chat when being taught.
