Language Programmes

Our language classes provide practical Mandarin with attention to standard pronunciation, real everyday conversation, grammar and Chinese culture.

An initial assessment is made to find out whether your Mandarin Level is Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced. We will discuss your objectives and work out your time frame, then design a learning plan based on your objectives and your level.

We'll also work out your learning style, time availability and funding to choose the most suitable class for your needs, whether that's one-to-one, in our beginner group classes, in small groups with friends or family, at our school clubs, or with your company colleagues.

The reasons you want to learn Mandarin will determine which programme suits you the best; please see our Learning Programmes below.
