Courses for Individuals

  • Interested in learning Chinese?
  • Want to add value to yourself in business and increase your future job prospects?
  •  Perhaps you’ve already studied Chinese or worked in China before and want to keep up with the language?
  •  Maybe you’re just in love with the Chinese language, Chinese culture and Chinese people – who can blame you?!

Whatever your situation, let us take your Mandarin to the next level – in style and with ease! Our relaxed approach to teaching you Chinese maximises the quality of your time and effort. The China Unbound way helps you to remember more with less hassle – thanks to the Power of Three!

1. You learn the right content

Take the Chinese words for ‘mother’ and ‘cousin’. You can learn either equally quickly but chances are, you will use mother a lot more frequently! That’s why we prioritise the words you learn in order to make the most of the time you give us.

2. Learn the right content, the right way

The environment we create allows you to practise often and benefit immediately from friendly feedback. We also harness the latest technology, digital resources and learning techniques to provide an immersive environment where you can read, listen, speak and understand more.

3. Have fun learning

When you’re having fun, it doesn’t feel like work. That’s the beauty of our approach to teaching you Mandarin. Play-time anyone?!

“The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.”
