Chinese Lessons in San Francisco, California

Many business experts claim that learning Chinese, known as Mandarin, is the smartest move you’ll ever make!

But you’ll probably start thinking of all of the reasons why you shouldn’t study the language because you’ve probably heard it’s hard. 

Although we can’t promise you it will be easy, our tutors at Superprof can guarantee you that using your spare time to learn Chinese is worth the investment.

Whether you’re career-driven or love having a new perspective of the world, learning this widely known language will help you discover so much more!

Besides, there will always be other languages that are harder to learn, but Chinese is only as hard as you make it.

If you ever decide to take lessons, you’d be surprised to learn that the Chinese language has a simple method that doesn’t use any tenses, cases, or gender.

Just simple grammar!

Our job is to make sure you’re enjoying and advancing in this new prospect with people that want to see you grow and succeed!

Why Learning Chinese Is Important

Well, let’s start with the obvious reason which is the fact that Chinese is the most spoken language in the world.

With more than 1.2 billion speakers, Chinese has come to be quite popular especially in big cities such as China, Singapore, and Taiwan.

And even though you might not be living in those areas, there are Chinese-speaking people living all over the world, and odds are you have a friend, colleague, or even client that knows the language.

Have The Opportunity To Expand Your Career

If you’re looking to improve your resume or become a number one candidate for whatever job you apply to, learn Chinese. 

Not only does speaking the language make you a better candidate, but it says a lot about your character and work ethic.

A recruiter will immediately learn that you’re on a whole other level of maturity and that you’re a driven person willing to put in the work to get ahead.

When it comes to business, Mandarin is a skill you don’t see quite often, so when a company comes across someone who is familiar and can communicate with their Chinese clients, they won’t hesitate to call you back.

You’ll be a valuable person!

And if you’re someone interested in international business, people will always hire those that know more than one language because it will make their company look good.

You might even be one of the people they choose to travel with their team to expand their brand and connections.

Especially, with China’s economy constantly growing and being one of the most important, learning Chinese might become a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Ways Learning Chinese Can Improve Your Life

When taking Chinese lessons, your tutor will emphasize the importance of learning the Chinese language, its practices, and the different ways it will benefit your life. 

When you learn Mandarin, you are immersing yourself in a culture with so many different customs and traditions that you’ll become familiar with a whole new way of life.

The Chinese way of life will leave you stunned at how much room there is for personal growth.

Learning this new language will also push you to use areas of your brain that you had never used before, and you may be wondering why that is.

To make it as simple as possible, English speakers only use the left temporal lobe while Mandarin speakers use both!

So if you want to increase your brain power and keep your mind healthy or even young, learning this incredible new language is definitely for you.

Indulge In Chinese Culture

One of the fascinating aspects of learning Chinese is having a newfound understanding of their culture and history.

So studying their phrases, expressions, and even humor will show you how Chinese people do their business, handle relationships and view themselves.

Their culture is considered one of the oldest in the world, so imagine all there is to learn about it and how it came to be.

From age-old temples, palaces, and tons of modern technology, you will have the unique opportunity to explore some of the world’s most famous sites, such as the Great Wall of China.

And with China heavily investing in international students, studying abroad might even be an option for you to continue your education, make long-lasting friendships, and most importantly, travel.

Another amazing opportunity is experiencing the true significance of family in the Chinese culture, and how it’s influenced by Confucianism. 

You might even dip your toes in Calligraphy, known for being the writing of the Chinese characters.

An art form that has been a traditional practice for years and many more to come!

But in this case, how neat would it be for you to not only speak the language but learn the origin of San Francisco's very own Chinatown especially coming from their community.

How To Get Started

Learning a new language like Chinese can take a lot of effort, time, and patience, but with the right tutor, it will be a life-changing experience.

Mandarin is considered a tonal language, meaning that each Chinese character has a different sound, very similar to studying music, so having a tutor help you work through the pronunciations is the best choice you can make!

Besides, a great way to learn the language is through consistency and practicing your Chinese out loud with another Chinese speaker.

You’ll find yourself recognizing different pronunciations and accents in no time!

And San Francisco is the city in the U.S. with the most Chinese residents, leaving you with so many options for Mandarin lessons to go through. 

But at Superprof, we are happy to help you filter through all of your choices to find the perfect online or in-person tutor that best fits your needs.

We are here to make sure you are comfortable, motivated, and excited to further your education at an affordable cost.

So why wait any longer and get started on Superprof to find your perfect tutor and ideal virtual classroom!
