San Francisco (or Peninsula) Chinese Classes for Adults

What are the best in-person classroom programs for adult Chinese language students in San Francisco and the Peninsula (preferably north of San Mateo)?

I am an intermediate-level Mandarin speaker seeking to maintain and improve my skill. I am familiar with various self-study resources and informal meet-ups, but really prefer the structure and exposure to different speaking styles I get through a more formal classroom environment.

I did some advanced-level study in college but that was several years ago, and I know my listening comprehension and speaking ability have both declined over time. However, I don't need to repeat work in beginner-level grammar and pronunciation. I am especially interested in improving fluency in discussing professional topics, current events, media, etc. and bridging the gap between talking about basic daily-life topics and having more substantial conversations.

My availability is generally confined to times outside of working hours but I can be flexible on budget. It's easy for me to get places within San Francisco or down the Peninsula, but not to the East Bay.

City College of San Francisco has a variety of Mandarin teachers. I suggest you contact the teachers and ask for resources. Courses are free to San Francisco residents, if you happen to find one that works for you.
