Chinese Mandarin language
Discover and release your inner Mandarinophone!
Our teachers Our highly qualified and experienced, native-level teachers will guide you through your first steps into your chosen language and beyond. Your teacher will help you to quickly learn to start communicating and understanding through varied and challenging activities, designed to encourage the student to both take the lead in their own learning, with support from class mates and the teacher, and build confidence when actively using the target language.
You will find lessons to be dynamic, engaging and highly interactive.
This communicative approach actively dispenses with the more formal lecture-based learning environment typical of school and university, promoting a fun and friendly atmosphere in which students can both learn, be challenged and enjoy their study.
This final point is particularly important after a long day at work and is the key reason why so many of our students return for more!
Why learn Mandarin Chinese? A true sense of culture and national characteristic can only really ever be discovered through time spent immersed in an unfamiliar society, and to do this, knowledge of the language is essential.
Mandarin Chinese opens up the most populous country in the world to discovery, with around 1.3 billion speakers – that is more than 1 in every 7 people on the planet! From megalopolises such as Beijing and Shanghai to stunning natural wonders like the Rainbow Mountains of Zhangye and the towering peaks and deep valleys of the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, inspiration for the scenery found in Avatar, China offers a continent’s worth of culture in one country.
Our teachers are encouraged to expose their learners as much as possible to the many interesting ways of life, peculiarities and subtleties of other parts of the world, from interesting customs and traditions to typical food, song and dance.
They often even turn the class into a cultural activity!Please call us 02079288995 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org

How will you learn? The course begins with a focus on the individual. In the first class of a Beginner 1 course you will be asked to provide the teacher with a quick breakdown of your reasons for choosing Mandarin Chinese and which of the big four areas (speaking, writing, reading, listening) are most important for you. The teacher uses this information to adapt the course to suit the group.
While a course book is important for structure and to provide the student with a grounding in their progress, our teachers are also free to draw on their life and teaching experience to create new and interesting ways to guide their learners through the excitement and discovery of the language and culture.
