Get more out of your Mandarin lessons with a native Mandarin tutor from Learn&Co

All of our Mandarin tutors are native speakers. And it’s their passion for their language – and their country’s culture – that makes our students’ learning journeys so memorable.

With Learn&Co, learning with a Mandarin tutor online means so much more than simply mastering grammar and vocabulary. Every lesson is an experience, where you’ll be let in on your tutor’s inborn knowledge of their country, culture, cuisine, current affairs, the arts and more.

For us, it’s all about enriching your learning, so you get more out of your travels, your personal encounters and your business relationships. Because when you have that insight into a country, communication becomes a way to express yourself and understand others, rather than simply exchange words.

Tailored learning, for Mandarin lessons you’ll always look forward to

When you look forward to your Mandarin lessons, you’ll find you get ahead so much faster. And learning with a Mandarin tutor online means you get to study in the comfort of your own home, but still engage with your Mandarin tutor as if you were face-to-face.

Learning online is a proven format we’ve been using with excellent success for several years, to the point where the feedback we get from our students is that they don’t want to leave once they’ve achieved their goals.

When you take online Mandarin lessons with Learn&Co, you can choose to learn either one-to-one, or in a small group of no more than two or three.

Really, it’s down to what works best for you, so just let us know!

“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.

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.

Although we are at different levels, Cathy has managed to cater for both our need within our joint tutorial classes.
