Why Chinese?

"Mandarin Chinese is the official language of mainland China and Taiwan. China has become a global super power and its influence in the world is ever growing. Learning to speak the language will open the door to many business and cultural opportunities in the world's most populous country, as well as the many overseas Chinese communities all over the world. The classes are taught with a focus on constant practise and fun activities. Whether just to travel to Chinese territories or to do business or cultural exchange, learning this complex and interesting language will prove very useful and fulfilling."

What do our students think?

"I'm studying basic level Chinese evening classes. I am finding it a fun and excellent experience. The class sizes are small so I can get one-to-one help when needed. The interactivity of the class really helps me to learn. I initially started studying to fill gaps on my CV but now I really want to take it on further."
