Inauguration Mandarin Centers Institute Santo Domingo
On July 4, the Aula Mandarin Centers Institute was officially inaugurated in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), the first that the school specialized exclusively in Mandarin Chinese language training has opened outside Spain.
This opening is part of the ambitious expansion plan that the educational group has defined for Latin America, where it plans to open new centers in Mexico and Peru in the near future.
The Mandarin Centers Institute classroom is located in the facilities of the Colegio Domínico Chino located in Santo Domingo, at Avenida Dr Delgado 255, as a result of the alliance that both institutions sealed in order to promote and bring the teaching of Mandarin Chinese to the Dominican population.The classroom will offer all the training programs that Mandarin Centers Institute offers in its wide portfolio of courses, both for children and adults.
Mandarin Centers Institute is an official examination center recognized by CLEC, so all its training programs follow the official Chinese curriculum, allowing students to be certified at the official HSK levels of Chinese as they complete the different courses.
The HSK levels are recognized worldwide and represent the only official certification that regulates the levels of Chinese language training. More and more Western and Chinese companies are demanding Chinese language proficient workers, so having the certification will considerably improve your chances of entering the labor market.

University students are well aware of the importance of having an official Chinese language certification in their curriculum, so Mandarin Centers Institute offers specialized courses for these students, which will allow them to certify the official HSK1 level (equivalent to level A1) by completing an initial course of 40 hours of classes.
The classroom is fully equipped with the latest technologies, allowing classes to be taught in hybrid mode through the Mandarin Centers Virtual Classroom, that is, students can decide at any time whether to come to the center in person or, on the contrary, take them virtually, making it easier for them to attend classes at all times.
At the same time, the virtual classroom is a magnificent tool for the student to advance in the learning of the language by himself, since in his own personal space in the classroom he will find didactic resources, videos, auditions, etc. that the teacher will be incorporating as a complementary part of the course.
Regarding the teachers, all of them are certified to teach Chinese as a foreign language and have experience in teaching the language to Spanish speakers. This is a very relevant point since they are fluent in both languages, allowing them to teach the class with the support language in Spanish.
At present, two HSK1 level courses are already being taught, which quickly filled the quota during the first days after the opening of the enrollment period, and in the coming days new calls for adults as well as specific courses for children will be opened.
