Welcome to our Chinese language school

If you want to learn Chinese, Singapore certainly offers many choices for Mandarin classes. But is there any environment in Singapore that’s more convenient for learning Mandarin than Orchard Road? That’s why we chose to locate our Chinese language centre right in the heartbeat of this area.
It’s convenient too. If you work in the CBD, we’re just a couple of mins walk from the Dhoby Ghaut and Somerset MRT Station.

What kind of school are you looking for? At Yi Mandarin, we strongly believe every language has its roots in its cultural and artistic heritage. Far from being simply an academic subject, Chinese is a fascinating and complex language shaped over 5,000 years of history.

We take pride in not just teaching a bunch of Chinese words, but also give our students a glimpse into the Chinese mindset, culture and history. With a strong focus on getting you to speak as quickly as possible.

We hope that you will find your language learning journey a fruitful and eye-opening cultural experience.

Our Philosophy

At Yi Mandarin and other Crystal Learning language schools, we see language first of all as a communication tool.

Learning a new language opens your mind, and it opens you to the possibility of getting to know new people with different perspectives.

You don’t need to be a fluent Mandarin speaker to start to see the benefits. If you make an effort to speak just a few words of Chinese, your conversation partners will also double up their efforts to make themselves understood in English.

Our lessons aren’t an academic pursuit. If you’re to dive very deep into Chinese characters, grammar or calligraphy, a different language school may be a better fit for you.

Of course, there is a place for grammar in the lessons at Yi Mandarin, but grammar isn’t a goal in itself. We’ll cover it as far as it helps you to speak more fluently, faster.

Exercise and application is more important. To master spoken Chinese, you need to “do” more and “understand” less. That’s why our curriculum starts with the most common everyday subjects, such that even after your first week, you can start throwing out a few Chinese words on your Grab ride or at lunch with your colleagues.
