Online Chinese Classes on Zoom

What is Zoom?

Since COVID 19 everyone is used to using Zoom. It is an easy to use platform to have meetings that works seamlessly.

Chinese Classes on Zoom

There are two different types of Chinese classes you can have on Zoom
– 1 on 1 Chinese Classes
– Group Classes

Zoom is Difficult in China

Although Zoom is founded by Eric Yuan who is originally from China. Zoom is actually quite challenging to use in China and to have an account. That is because of the Great Firewall of China. Here at China Admissions, we do host most of our Online events on Zoom, but it can be challenging for some teachers to use Zoom in China.

Most of the Chinese schools in China use different platforms, and they prefer to use the same platform for all their students instead of using Zoom for one student, Skype for another student, and some of the others, but they can often be flexible for you if you prefer Zoom if it is a 1 on 1 Chinese class.

Is Zoom really important to you? Or can you accept another platform?  Luckily there are many platforms that offer a similar quality and experience (and some are even better), for example, some schools will give you the recording of your previous classes.
– Classin (Preferred by TICC)
– Fastmeeting  (Preferred by BLCU)
– Skype

Book a Free Trial Class

Most of the Chinese schools will offer you with a free trial class to get started. They will evaluate your Chinese level and give you a proposed plan.

We suggest you can book free trial classes with different schools and see which is the best for you. Our top 3 suggestions would be:
Beijing Language and Culture University
Tianjin International Chinese College
Dalian Neusoft University of Information

Sample 1 on 1 Chinese Class

Sample Group Chinese Class

If you are looking to study a Chinese group class, such as BLCU, then you will need to use the schools platform.
