"I studied at LingoClass for 6 months before moving to China for work. Without them I would not have developed the language skills I need to survive there. All the teachers were very supportive, the quality of the lesson materials was very high and they helped me pass 3 separate HSK exams. Would recommend to anyone thinking of studying a new language."

What are the benefits of learning Mandarin Chinese with us?

​Learning Chinese offers many benefits to personal and professional growth, not least gaining a better understanding of one of the richest cultures in the world. Every year, millions of people travel to China to see the shrines, walk the Great Wall of China and indulge in the wonderful food markets in cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen. 

Study Chinese Culture

With its vast land mass and fascinating history, Chinese culture is one of the most interesting in the world. Learning Chinese language can give you the ability to better appreciate Chinese art, food and music. As part of the LingoClass Mandarin course curriculum, we make sure to include elements of Chinese culture, such as Chinese calligraphy and Chinese food preparation. In addition to being fun activities in themselves, we believe they can help you become a more knowledegable and well rounded Mandarin student.

Mandarin is the Most Widely Spoken Language in the World

More people speak Chinese as a first language than any other; approximately 1.2 billion people. In recent years this has become widely recognised with UK schools adopting GCSE Chinese as part of the curriculum. Tapping into this trend and taking a Mandarin course can put you at a great advantage for employment, travel and personal development. We've also experienced first hand how impressive it can be to show people your Mandarin speaking skills when ordering in a bar or restaurant.

Learn Mandarin in London

Learning Chinese is Good for Business

Business Chinese is becoming increasingly important in the global economy, with Chinese businesses booming and set to greatly influence the world economy in years to come. Studying Mandarin in London can put you at a great advantage when dealing with suppliers or business partners abroad and can open doors for business travel and international relations. In short, learning to speak professional Mandarin is likely to be extremely well received by any Chinese business associates you work with as well as being a great help in understanding many important documents and processes in the international supply chain. 

Learning Mandarin is Easier Than You Think!

Studying Chinese to fluency can seem like a daunting task. Many people are put off by the thought of learning to read and write in Mandarin. While there are over 80,000 Chinese characters to learn, generally only around 3,500 are used in conversation and this is enough to read and understand a Chinese newspaper. Similarly, people can be nervous about learning to use the correct tones in Mandarin. While this can be difficult to do with 100% accuracy there are no tenses, plurals, subject-verb agreement or conjugations to worry about in Chinese grammar. If you don't believe us why not sign up to one of our Chinese courses and find out for yourself? 

An Immersive Chinese Group Class

Our Mandarin group lessons are small, social and interactive, averaging just 6 students per class. This setting provides the optimal environment to learn new elements of Chinese and practice using them with people of a similar level to yourself. The highly qualified Chinese teachers at our language centre all understand the best ways to help you learn and remember Chinese language so you can adapt it to your needs when out in the field. 

PRACTICAL AND involving

We believe in hands-on learning, rather than getting lost in a textbook or sucked into perfection of grammar.

PASSIONATE INSTRUCTORS

We exclusively hire instructors with a conversation-based, student-centered approach to teaching, providing the best in-class experience.

CONVERSATION FIRST

Speaking is at the heart of all of our classes, and in an immersive setting, you’ll get even more opportunity to practice critical speaking and listening skills.

CONSISTENCY IS KEY

Each class meets at the same time and place every week - creating consistency in your language learning.
