Chinese (Mandarin) language
Discover and release your inner Mandarinophone!
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?

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.
