Mandarin Adult Courses

Learn&Co offers a variety of Mandarin courses tailored to your needs and objectives, as we believe this is the most active way to learn a language.

With us, finding a tutor for you is not just an administrative matter. We carefully select your Mandarin tutor taking into account your personal and professional background as well as your interests.


Launch Your Language Journey with Learn&Co

A web search for ‘Mandarin tutors near me’ brings up plenty of results. You’ll see qualifications, promises of fast track learning and grade-boosting guarantees. But at Learn&Co, we believe there’s SO much more to a great language tutor than qualifications and promises.

And that’s why we’ve hand-picked our select team of Mandarin tutors in London for their personal qualities, their passion for always doing their best to help their students hit their goals or grades, and their natural ability to connect with their students and make learning fun.

Whatever your reasons for learning Mandarin or your current knowledge of the language, however you prefer to learn, our hands-on matching process will make sure you’re paired with the perfect tutor from our team. Someone you’ll instantly click with. Someone who will understand the way you like to learn. A tutor you can laugh with, but who you can always trust to keep you focused on your Mandarin language learning goals.

With Learn&Co, you’ll get to choose whether you learn Mandarin either one-to-one or in a small group of no more than two or three fellow students. All our lessons are held online, so you feel comfortable in your own surroundings, yet still able to engage with your Mandarin tutor as if you were face-to-face. It’s a proven format we’ve been using with great success for many years, to the point where many of our students tell us they don’t want to leave once they’ve hit their goals.

Meet our Mandarin Tutors

Suzy Mandarin tutor in London

Suzy was born in Shanghai and has 20 years’ experience as a Mandarin tutor. She has lived in the UK since 2001 and has experience in teaching diplomats, as well as Chinese GCSE and A level students. Suzy always makes sure to put her students at ease so they enjoy the learning process.

“Suzy has been an amazing teacher. Thanks to her endless patience and flexibility, not least of course, her sense of humour, which she has required at times in teaching me Mandarin!”

Annie Mandarin tutor

Annie is a native speaker of Mandarin, and has been professionally qualified as a teacher in China and as a Chinese Mandarin teacher in the UK. Professional, patient and passionate about teaching, Annie believes a constructive style of teaching is most effective, building solid foundations in grammar and pronunciation to lead students to fluency.

“Annie is an excellent teacher. She prepares well for the lessons, is very professional in her approach and has a good focus on what is required. I have learned a lot since I began having lessons with her.”

Li Li Mandarin tutor
Li Li

Li Li is familiar with all Mandarin exams ranging from GCSE and A-Levels to IB and the new HSK. One thing she prides herself on is creating her own learning materials and finding resources that match individual students’ interests so they have the best possible sources to learn from for their specific needs.

“I highly recommend Li Li as a Chinese tutor. I have been studying under her guidance for 4 months and during this time my Chinese ability has improved noticeably. She explains the meaning of new Chinese words and characters clearly and provides clear context about how they should be used in sentences.”

Cathy Mandarin tutor

Cathy is a native Mandarin speaker from Beijing with 20 years’ experience in teaching Mandarin. Due to her institutional teaching background, Cathy’s class is very organised and structured, consisting equally of listening, speaking, reading and writing so that students develop all four skills simultaneously. 

“Me and my mum have been working with Cathy for a while now and have really enjoyed her teaching style and found the classes to be very engaging and stimulating. Although we are at different levels, Cathy has managed to cater for both our need within our joint tutorial classes. She has helped us both improve our speaking as well as writing abilities in Chinese.”

How can we help you on your Mandarin for business learning journey?

Mandarin language for business lessons from Learn&Co are fully tailored to the unique needs of your organisation, and the individual language student. Here are some of our most popular ways of learning Mandarin for business.


If you prefer to have the full attention of your Mandarin tutor, our one-to-one lessons will probably suit you best. Available online, or in person in London only, the lessons will be customised to suit your favoured learning style, and anything specific you’d like to cover.


Maybe you’d prefer to learn Mandarin alongside one or two of your colleagues? If you relish a touch of competition, and enjoy the social side of learning, then our small group lessons, with no more than three students, could be for you.


Whether you have an overseas trip coming up, or you are about to launch a new business or product in a Mandarin speaking country, our intensive Mandarin course in London or online will help you master the basics, or improve quickly in a limited time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long it takes you to pick up Mandarin will depend on a range of factors. These include your natural ability to learn, your experience with languages, your level of focus, how much time you spend with your tutor and how much homework you’re able to tackle each week.

The most important factors are how many hours you are willing to commit to practising. Speaking and writing Mandarin regularly will help you pick up the language faster.

All our Mandarin tutors in London set our students homework as standard.

Homework is a key part of your Mandarin language learning journey, so you will definitely need to factor time in every week. Homework offers many benefits, from giving you the chance to review what you’ve learnt, to expanding your knowledge and helping you develop a deeper understanding of the various aspects of the language.

Through regular homework, you will find your Mandarin language skills develop faster. So be sure to allow at least 90 minutes per week for homework and Mandarin vocabulary revision.

We have been experts in the online Mandarin tutoring experience for many years, and were delivering online one-to-one and small group lessons long before the pandemic put a stop to in-person classes.
