Chinese Language Courses & Pricing

How to Learn Chinese with Hong Tu

We strongly believe that you learn languages best when studying and practicing. We teach you the language in the classroom and then give you the resources to master it between classes. This has two advantages:

  • It works. With regular study and one weekly class, our students learn Chinese as fast or faster than a college class.
  • It is less expensive.
  • If you put the time in, you can master Chinese.

Group Classes or Private Lessons – Which are best for you?

Our language course packages are broken out into group and individual options. Read on to learn which is the best fit for you.



Group Classes – Starting at $150/month

Group classes offer the opportunity to study with other people passionate about Chinese language & culture in our small group classes. The maximum class size is 8. Typically classes range from 3 to 6 people and offer a less expensive option. Group courses do require that you study at the pace of the group, which is typically slower than private lessons. They also do not offer flexible scheduling. While we are unable to reschedule missed lessons, we do offer the opportunity for makeup lessons at a reduced rate.





Private Lessons – Starting at $375/month

Private lessons offer the fastest paced learning option for you. You will learn faster, because you are the focus of a trained native speaking instructor for the entire hour. Each lesson is based on your pace and learning needs. Private lessons are more convenient. You schedule lessons at the best time for you. We are also able to reschedule private lessons with 24 hours notice.
