The language education based on two different concepts (acquisition and learning) will decide if a training institution is professional or not.

Chinese language is a kind of Hieroglyphic language which the characters have no correlation between the pronunciation and spelling, however English is phonetic language that spelling is highly consistent with the pronunciation. When one is able to listen and speak, it's much easier to learn to read and write.
