MANDARIN LANGUAGE HOUSE

Mandarin Language House (MLH) is a Malaysian based Mandarin Language Centre, that specialized in providing Mandarin language training, interpreting and translation service. Under Group of Oriental Language Centre.

Oriental Language Centre is the FIRST Korean language specialist in Malaysia that using DIRECTED SELF-STUDY teaching method in teaching Korean language. Learners study in group but able to learn at their own pace and move base on their own learning progress under guidance of a well trained and skilled instructor. The learning materials are special designed by KLH and suitable for Korean language learners who study the language outside Korea.

Mandarin Language House (MLH) is the extension from Korean Language House (KLH) which specializes in providing professional Mandarin language training from zero to advanced level. KLH is well known for our specially designed teaching method called “Directed Self-Study” (DSS), wherein every learner learns a foreign language at their own pace; without being interrupted by other learners. MLH is set to have the same concept with KLH, which is to train a learner through our very own DSS method, and our courses are applicable for both native Mandarin speakers and non-Mandarin speakers.

DSS (Directed Self-Study): For those who are interested to learn Mandarin at their own pace, wherein fast learners can move faster and slower learners can learn at their own pace you may consider to join our DSS Mandarin classes. DSS Mandarin classes are a combination of Mandarin learning and HSK preparation, which helps to provide both learning and testing of the language. DSS Mandarin classes are suitable for those who would like to learn Mandarin conversation, listening, writing and for the preparation of HSK.

Besides DSS, we also provide DTM teaching as per normal language centres. To cater the needs of some learners who are interested to learn Mandarin through classroom teaching:

DTM (Direct Teaching Method): Native tutors will guide learners to practice 4 basic skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) during class. All learners are using same teaching materials and will move at the same progress. DTM refrains from using medium languages such as English or Malay, and mainly focuses on using the Chinese language to conduct classes. This helps learners to develop a sense of the language. DTM classes are suitable for those who prefer to learn conversational Mandarin from native Chinese tutors.

having to follow other students’ learning progress.

first 2 hours of the lesson.

translate simple sentences within 4-8 lessons.

self-confidence and independence, as well as passion in language learning.
