Learn Chinese with our live group classes using Zoom

Welcome to ChineseByDesign

Join the fun with small online group classes led by English-speaking Chinese teachers using our Accelerated Learning techniques in real-time.

Chinese Classes Timetables

All our Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese) classes are held once per week for 10 weeks.

For Beginners Mandarin Level 1 classes, each session is 11/2 hours - a total of 15 hours of classes per Term.
For all other Levels and Cantonese, each class duration is 2 hours - a total of 20 hours of classes per Term.
We have a total of 4 Terms per year which means you can study up to 4 Levels in one year!

Best of all, we have most class levels (Beginners to Advance) for ALL 4 Terms each year.

Chinese Courses Pricing

Beginners Level 1 live classes are about US$12 per hour.
All this includes student materials and access to our Premium student tools.
These classes are real live Zoom sessions with other nice and friendly students.
These are NOT pre-recorded videos or apps.

For more information on pricing and scheduling or enrolments, please email Robert at cbd@accschinese.com or chat with him on our ACCS Facebook Page.

The new Term 2 starts from the week beginning of 19th April 2021.

Enrol now to avoid disappointment since all our Zoom classes are limited to only 12 students.

Mandarin Classes

In this course students will learn how to read and write the commonly used Chinese radicals which still form the basis of modern Chinese writing. By mastering these radicals, students will learn other ideographs more easily and how to use a Chinese/English dictionary more quickly.

Students will also learn to converse in everyday situations. The approach used to teach writing, reading and conversing is based completely on Accelerated Learning principles.

Back Story

ChinesebyDesign was established in response to the COVID pandemic when students at the Australasian Centre of Chinese Studies suggested that our Zoom public classes would be fantastic for the rest of the world who wants to learn Chinese.

Australasian Centre of Chinese Studies (ACCS) was established in 1992 in Melbourne, Australia. It is now the leading Language Centre in Australia which specialises in teaching Chinese using Accelerated Learning.

Each Term, we have over 300 adult learners and over 200 kids enrolled supported by an academic faculty of over 20 teachers based in Australia.


Great classes, great teachers and great content to learn. I have been doing Mandarin since Level 1 and never in my entire lifetime did I think I would be able to learn and retain as much as I do now.
The class structure itself is great and the content is easy to follow and the teachers they use are just fantastic! Whether you are a beginner or advanced, they have something to cater for everybody
