Why learn the YCT?

YCT ( Youth Chinese Test ) is designed for primary and middle school students from the non-Chinese background family to learn Chinese (Mandarin) in a systematic way. It is the official recognised Chinese Language Proficiency Certificate for youth.

We believe the YCT is the best Chinese class for children from the non-Chinese background family based on the below reasons.

  1. Incentive with a goal: YCT is designed on current trends of international Chinese language training with “promote learning through testing” principle. It gives children the motivation to learn the Chinese language and get the YCT certificates. YCT is officially recognised Chinese language proficiency test. The YCT certificate is a benchmark for students who want to learn Chinese for their future.
  2. Improve self-confidence: YCT has four levels. IT gives children the steps to process their study of Chinese languages. Most students will pass the YCT test because the passing score is only 60%. This improves students’ self-confidence and interest in learning Chinese.
  3. We choose the YCT Standard Course as our textbook. It comes with a textbook and a workbook. The two books use attractive contents for children like pictures, activities, exercises, songs and stories to make their Chinese study function and fun.

The Goal of our YCT Class:

While you can sit for YCT test to get a certificate but our YCT course is not designed for test purpose only. The goal of our YCT class is to help Non-Chinese background children learn the Chinese language in nature and systematic way. They will learn Mandarin with a goal in mind and much fun at the class. We will help them pass YCT levels step by step.

What are the YCT levels?

YCT has four levels:
