Learning Mandarin is very difficult but worth the effort if you consider the many new doors this language may open for you in Asia. While English is widely spoken in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, you enter a different word once you arrive in mainland China where a foreigner with no Chinese language skills at all takes triple the time to adjust to his/her new environment.
The Chinese Language Proficiency Center offers intensive Mandarin Courses for 4 hours in the morning on five days weekly. Applicants must be graduates or current students of a tertiary institution.
