Noble International Language Center

1. A bit about Noble


Noble is an international language center located in the heart of Beijing, just at the central business district (CBD), one of the city's busiest areas. It was first founded in 2005, but its history goes a long way back. Noble was first founded by Hayashi Mie, a Japanese headmaster and businesswoman who started cooperating with another international language center, HAO , which had been operating since 1970 in Tokyo. Among some other languages that were taught by HAO , were also included Spanish, Korean, French, Portuguese, Japanese, English and Chinese. Operating in Japan, HAO had become very famous and respected among the public, owning and running some 38 branches in total, not including Noble, which at that time was still a silent partner, learning and studying the teaching methods developed by HAO for over 35 years. In 2005, Hayashi Mie finally felt she had accumulated the best teaching methods and had acquired the necessary knowledge for delivering a new language skills and techniques to students, whether grown-ups or kids, businessmen or high school students, ones who wished to master a professional niche of a language, pass a test, apply for a job, do business or just to chat fluently with locals all over the world and overcome annoying language barriers. Cooperating HAO Hayashi Mie chose Beijing's world trade center as the most suitable area for the international language center she was about to found. She chose Lin Wen Bo, a Chinese born Japanese, as the Headmaster, and the best of staff as the school's teachers. We now have the unique opportunity to use all the experience and knowledge we have accumulated during the last 44 years in order to develop and present the beauty of the Chinese language to our English speaking students all over the world!

2. Our vision
We intend to provide our students the best online learning experience from beginning to end, with a friendly, understanding and the most qualified and experienced staff of teachers. Our intention is to equip every student with a full understanding of the Chinese language down to its most hidden subtleties. We understand that different people have different ways to understand a learned material, different needs, different preferences, different time tables and different levels, and so we aspire to have a full understanding and consideration of every one of our students, and to adjust ourselves according to their needs. In the end, our vision is to share the magic of the Chinese language with as many nonChinese people as possible, and to do that in the most enjoyable, clear and comprehensive, satisfying way!

3. Our goal
Our goal is to make every student's learning experience as enjoyable and satisfying as possible. We understand that the demand for studying Chinese is increasing rapidly on the one hand, but that many people who would like to study it just don't have the proper conditions, and cannot afford leaving their life behind and relocate to China just for that propose, on the other. Therefore, our main goal is to use Skype and online lessons in order to reach as many people who are eager to master Chinese as possible. We intend to use all the knowledge and experience we have accumulated over more then forty years of teaching the Chinese language, with clear examples and the best teaching methods possible. Finally, we understand that different people around the globe have different fields of interest, different levels of Chinese, different ways of understanding explanations, different preferences of studying, and what's more, they have different time zones, different time tables, and different obligations. In reference to all that, we intend to do our best and answer each and every one of our student's needs, by being the most flexible that we could be, let the students choose the times and lengths of the lessons themselves, or deciding them with their teachers. We intend to let our students choose for themselves, weather to have a 1-on-1 course or a private one for the same studying fee, the number of lessons per week or month, subject of the lessons (if they have a preferable one), and the way of studying (either by having conversations or a methodical grammar teaching, reading materials etc.)

4. Why Noble?
With a huge mass of people and cultures, China is the most populated country on the face of the earth. It is a home for some 1.4 billion people, and counting. The Chinese booming economy during the last decade has brought up many opportunities for businessmen around the world, and the huge demand for western products, innovations and co-operations has been a fertile ground for business making in China and the like. But not only businessmen are attracted to the "only-by-name-communistgiant". China's enormous ground, being the third biggest country in the world, with an amazing number of ethnic groups, 'Han' being the major one plus 55 more minorities, It's diverse and constant changing view, have been attracting travelers and adventure seekers to explore and discover the amazing new world that has been opened up to them. But China is not that easy a place for foreigners. In fact, it's quite hard on them, and that's probably a part of its charm. Today, 6 years after the Olympic Games were held in Beijing, most of the Chinese people's English skills are still very poor to non-existent at all, a factor which drives more and more non-Chinese speakers to start twisting their tongues in an effort to master the language, which at first glance can be seen as unstudyable. During the last decade, more and more people have started studying the Chinese language, and accordingly, more and more Chinese schools have been opened in and out of China, courses have been developed, private lessons have been given and selftutoring products have been sold. With such a huge selection, how can one make the right choice and enroll to the school that would enrich them the most? There are so many factors that can make the difference between a good school and a bad one, and so many variables that would make the difference between a good learning experience to remember and one that is a waste of time and money. But all of those factors can be summed up into one sentence, which is our motto:

"To give the most for the very least". This sentence expresses our view of a real
good, enjoyable and worthwhile studying experience. In Noble, we gathered a big variety of teachers; all of them are certified and experienced, to teach Chinese to new and old students. All of our teachers have taught kids (and even babies of 2 years of age), grown-ups, high school students, businessmen, etc. all of them have taught business Chinese and Living in Chinese courses, have delivered chatting skills and every-day skills, have prepared dozens of students for exams, and so on Our teaching methods count for more then 40 years of experience, and as we believe that every person has their own ways of seeing and understanding a new learned material, we try to adjust our teaching techniques and even the teachers themselves to each one of our students. We aspire to be as flexible as possible, and so, we let the students themselves to choose the learned material according to their interests, set a time that is suitable for them for the lesson, decide by themselves how long every lesson would be and the frequency of the lessons themselves. Students can change materials, books, topics, time tables, and even the teachers! In a word, we give each and every one of them special attention and personal care. To make our students comfortable and enjoy studying is a guiding line for us! On the other hand, as any other operating business, we need to have an income in order to keep things going. But, as our motto goes, we try to keep it as cheap as can be. We have set very low prices for our lesson packs by any standard, in the hope of being very cheap on the one hand, but very valuable and accessible to anyone, on the other!
