Our

Centre

With 55 years of experience in teaching Chinese as a foreign language, CLC is the only university teaching unit in Hong Kong offering award-bearing Chinese language programmes to both Chinese speakers (Putonghua for Cantonese speakers and Cantonese for Mandarin speakers) and non-native speakers alike.

Our students come from all over the world (over 70 countries!). Although everyone has a different background, there is a common goal: learning Chinese with a purpose.

Our Teachers  

CLC was recommended to me by my PhD supervisor who himself is a CLC graduate. He said, “you’ll have to study hard but don’t worry - the staff are amazing”. True words! I especially like the fact that I now have friendships with fellow students (Korean, American and Japanese) and that our sole language of communication is Mandarin.

CLCは本当質が高いと思います。私の大学の中国語の授業に比べたら天と地の差です。ここのプログラムは本当にしっかりとしていました。先生の教え方もかなり分かりやすく、かつ面白く教えてくれるので、本当に心からお篤めできる学校です。

In Hong Kong, the majority of people prefer to speak Cantonese. When I moved here, I chose to study Cantonese because it seemed like the best choice for getting to know the people and the city.
