While the school claims to give you a choice of learning Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese, it really teaches with Traditional Chinese books with a bit of Simplified Chinese characters tossed in to make things more confusing. The principal herself said that people do frequently drop the class after the first session (and lose half the annual tuition) because of that and yet she continues to perpeturate the misconception. If you should email the school, it will explicitly say that you have a choice of learning to read and write in either forms of Chinese. I'd recommend sitting in a couple of different level classes to get an idea of what is truly being taught before signing up or risk losing $200 after one lesson.

Another downside is since the school does try to do a mix of two forms of Chinese, the class teaches vocabulary at a much slower rate.

The school is also called JiaLe.
