Different types of online language learning schools have different pricing policies

Although there are many online language learning schools throughout the world, lesson fees do not necessarily correlate with lesson quality.

Familiarize yourself with the different components of lesson prices, and choose the site which suits you best

An online language learning school run by language schools Joint venture between language schools and an online language learning site ChinaGO!
Lesson prices Language school prices depend on the country where the school is located Fees tend to mount up Low prices by comparison
Reference price 25-40$/hour 25-40$/hour 7-17$/hour
Breakdown of pricing Rent, utility costs and the costs of office staff involved in running a language school all add to the fees. The amount of remuneration distributed to the instructors varies according to the standard practice of the country where the school is located. In general, lesson costs can mount up for language schools in developed countries. Our website is not involved in the actual management of the language schools; its role is to bring in new clients for existing schools. Many language schools and managing agents use consultants. Site administrators, language schools, and consultants mean there are many staff in addition to the instructors themselves. Their costs are added in to the cost of the lessons. Our website has a direct contract with the instructors. With no intermediaries involved, no additional costs are incurred in this respect. Because our language school is online, the costs required for rent, utility costs and the salaries of the administrative staff of a language school building do not apply to us.
Instructor Language schools are restricted to using instructors resident in the country where the school is located. Depending on the country a school is in, it may sometimes have teachers with dubious qualifications on its books. Where a model with a high middle margin is used, the amount of remuneration available for the teachers is low. Some sites have a set-up whereby the instructor receives 10% of the lesson fee. For this reason, instructor quality does not always correspond to the fees charged, with respect to lesson pricing. If we leave the middle margin to one side, reducing management costs will at the same time boost the level of remuneration to instructors. The quality of the lectures has a high correlation with the quality of the instructors, and the quality of the instructors is related to the level of their remuneration. By increasing the pay available to the instructors, it is not incompatible to have both low-priced lessons and high quality instructors.

Student‘s Voice

Germany

From the first time I visited China, I was fascinated by the charm of China, and now I visit every year. Before I found out about ChinaGO!, I used to travel on a package tour or had to rely on my friends who lived in China, but now I can go anywhere alone freely. Since I started speaking Chinese, people seem to be nicer to me, and I love China even more.

Malaysia

I do not study on ChinaGO! much. I only enjoy freestyle conversations with instructors I like for 30 minutes. I live in the countryside in a small circle of people. Talking to people who live in the worlds different from mine on ChinaGO! makes me feel that my life is being enriched. I am dreaming of visiting the countries where my instructors live.

Netherlands

Since it is cheaper than other learning sites, I study everyday for 30 minutes in the same way I go to the gym. I feel that I am improving my skills in my spare time, and I feel emotionally fulfilled everyday.

United kingdom

My favorite instructor is friendly with whom I can talk about anything, so I enjoy my lessons everyday. I have never met my instructors in person, but I feel like I have made lots of friends in foreign countries. I would like to improve my skills more and make lots of friends in China.

Spain

I needed to know Chinese for work, so I signed up on this site. Not to mention Chinese, I cannot even speak English much, but there are instructors who are good at English who can understand my poor English, so learning Chinese has almost no problem.
Since I just have started taking lessons, my instructors use websites for kids in China to teach me, and we started with basic pronunciation practices. Since my instructors know my skills well, I can study at ease. All the instructors are native speakers of Chinese, which makes it slightly different from learning Chinese with instructors at places like universities. I was not sure if there would be lessons that would fit my schedule due to the time difference, but lessons are offered in a wide range of time slots, so I can pick them freely.
This is a site that makes me want to continue studying until my skills become practical enough.

China

I enjoy it more than my classes at college because I can sometimes learn about the culture and daily life of China at freestyle conversations. Since I talk to the instructors every day, I can listen to Chinese better than before, and my friends commented that my pronunciation had gotten better. I sincerely appreciate the instructors at ChinaGO!. I would like to improve my skills in Chinese more, so I have decided to go to China to study. I am really looking forward to it!

Japan

I got transferred to Shanghai at work, and now I live in China. I go to a university’s language center to study, but I have not improved as much as I had hoped with group lessons, so I have started feeling anxious. Also, even though I live in China, people around me are mostly foreign students, and most of my conversations with my friends are in English. I rarely have opportunities to speak Chinese, and I didn’t know how to practice conversations. Since I joined ChinaGO!, I can review what I have learned earlier at college every day and practice speaking through freestyle conversations. Thanks to that, now I am more confident in making conversations in Chinese.

United States of America

I was born in Beijing, but I got married to an American guy whom I had met in college, and now we live in Los Angeles. We would like our kids to speak Chinese in addition to English, but I work and don’t have enough time to teach them. Since I had found ChinaGO!, our kids have been enjoying talking Chinese lessons. Our kids used to dislike going to China because they could not talk to my parents, but now they look forward to going back to China together. My parents are also truly happy, too.

Were you able to read and write when you first started speaking?

Everyone learned to speak by listening to their parents speak. Then they learned many more words by just talking.

However, when you study a foreign language, you mainly learn how to read and write first. Why is that?

It is because it is difficult for an instructor to talk individually to all students in a class at a group lesson setting. This is the limitation of group lessons.
