In an international hub like Hong Kong, there is a high demand for bilingual talents. Jobs may require you to speak Mandarin and English, often adding that knowledge of Cantonese is a plus. But there is more to being multilingual than career benefits—knowing languages can broaden your horizons when travelling, studying abroad, or moving to a new country.
Luckily, Q Language is here to help those looking to acquire a new language or improve their current skills! Offering services from small group teaching to exam and interview preparation, here are six reasons adult language learners should check out its services.
Learning in a large group is known to be a one-way process from teacher to student, which can be unsuitable for picking up a new language, as it highly depends on interactivity and participation. At Q Language, group classes are kept at a maximum of eight students—the magic number that ensures equal attention from the teacher and adequate social interaction between students. Regardless of whether you are taking a general English or Chinese course, or looking to level up your language game in a business environment, you can always engage and develop interpersonal relationships with like-minded people.
If you want to take a break from the group setting, that’s perfectly doable! Any three hours of group classes can be switched to one hour of private one-on-one sessions at no cost.
Speaking with native-level teachers is crucial for language courses. In order to provide students with that authentic experience, all of Q Language’s teachers are natively proficient in either English, Mandarin, Cantonese, or Korean with internationally recognised training qualifications. Plus, Q Language’s student consultants are multilingual, so they can better understand each student’s needs besides language learning.
Within a melting pot of staff from 10 different countries and students from over 30 countries, you will be immersed in a multicultural environment. Yulia, a Q Language student from Belarus, says, “You can hear the different ways of speaking English” in an international classroom, which reflects how people in the real world speak the language.
Language learning should extend beyond the classroom environment—and that’s why Q Language arranges extracurricular activities for its students to mingle with each other, sightsee, and have fun! Besides visiting museums and art galleries, you can take in Hong Kong’s beautiful landscape during a hike or feast on barbecued foods with students from the whole school. Don’t forget to impress others with your newly acquired language skills!
If you are interested in pursuing higher education in local or overseas universities, Q Language will prepare you for your exams and interviews. Courses can be tailored to fit your learning needs to ace exams from IELTS and SAT to the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK).
Need help entering the corporate world? Q Language covers that, too! Step-by-step guidance on writing résumés and preparing for work interviews are provided by teachers who all have extensive business experience worldwide. If you are looking to further your career in Hong Kong, the staff at Q Language is happy to offer tips and tricks.
Sometimes, acquiring visas can be complicated and stressful, but the good news is that Q Language is equipped with an expert legal team to help you process visa applications for free! Whether you need a working holiday visa or a student visa, just send your relevant documents through email, and the staff will handle the rest.
If you are a student from overseas, accommodation may be a worrying factor on your travel checklist. Fortunately, Q Language has a student housing service that can help you settle into Hong Kong easily and comfortably within your budget. With a range of housing choices from homestays to luxury studios, the school will also help you open a bank account, offer guides on living in Hong Kong, and much more.
