Mandarin Chinese language classes
We offer Mandarin Chinese Language Classes for staff, students and the local community.
For all classes, learners will need to study privately for approximately 3 hours a week between lessons in order to learn vocabulary.
Registration & payment can be made through our Online Store Pages. If you wish to pay by other means, please visit us in The Roundhouse.
We are also working towards all of our Extracurricular classes being available for LU staff to sign up to via Flexible Benefits.
If you are interested in a more personal session, we can also offer tailored 1-to-1 sessions with a Chinese Teacher, who can allow flexible sessions to suit your needs and interests. Classes will be £20 per hour, please enquire if you are interested.
