Why Study with Us?
At ECCS, we use Accelerated Learning methods and materials developed by Dr Moni Lai Storz with native speaking teachers trained by us. This means that you will get a very effective and enjoyable learning experience with us.
Does the Methods work? ACCS has been the leading Chinese Centre for the past 18 years in Melbourne! We started in Melbourne in 1992 and in Sydney in 2003. With Valli Lai, we started ECCS in 2004 in London. We have been around for a while. Over 9000 people have attended our Chinese classes in the past 18 years!
"I have recently joined your classes in Mandarin. At the time I did not know your accelerated principles, but having enjoyed every class and experienced the technique, I am to commend you. I had attended other language learning schools and find yours fun, enjoyable to the extent of finding myself eager for the next class, and on top of this I am learning Mandarin with greater depth and understanding. At this point I would like to complement the teacher whom I find has a very refreshing teaching style, and allows learning Mandarin to be enjoyable."
We are extremely well-priced (Approx. £12.50 per hour, including books and CDs).
We have concurrent classes at most levels giving you maximum flexibility in attendance. You can attend any available class each week or even repeat the same lesson, if you like. We seldom cancel classes due to insufficient students.
Our classes are conveniently located in Tottenham Court Road. They are small classes, the average class size is only 8 to 10 students!
We have a complete curriculum to study Mandarin ranging from absolute beginner to advanced conversation levels including Chinese for Business. A total of 15 levels!
Great networking opportunities for social or business purposes.
Most of all, our Chinese classes are fun and interesting - we do not have tests and we do not teach from standard boring textbooks!
"I have travelled to China 4 times on business since I commenced the course this year, it has been a great help and a lot of fun speaking to the local Chinese. I will be travelling back probably another 3 times before Christmas and I feel well equipped to handle many situations. Although I cannot discuss business at this stage I can get by quite easily travelling, having minor chitchat and I am able to get what I need and be understood in many situations...mostly with a lot of laughing from them. For someone who has never attempted another language and I would hate to say how long it has been since I went to school but with this course and type of teaching, I have learnt so much! I am far from the best student and do not do enough after class practise but still I have learnt."
