Chinese Language

Course Overview

“Language is the friendliest of the things from which we cannot escape.”
‒Mason Cooley

Harshitha Technologies of Foreign Languages Institute was established after our director felt the need to support the rising trade and other ties between China and India. China has currently overtaken the US to develop into the largest trading partner of India. But when compared millions of Indians who know English with just the handful who know Chinese.

As China at present is also on the edge of becoming the next largest financial system in the world, after the US, several people in India, ranging from business people to industrialists will have to know what is going on in China. Since there can be no understanding with any communication and as only a few people in China speak English, it has become significant for Indians to learn Chinese.

Our institute, unlike other language training institutes, not only specializes in teaching Chinese, but also provides an imminent into the culture, custom and knowledge of life in China.

We have prepared our personal study material and our programs are highly interactive and amusing, while ensuring that the students master the sentence structure and nuances of the language. In addition our classes are held in a comfortable and peaceful atmosphere. If required we can also approach to your place to conduct classes at your ease.
