Learn Chinese in Glasgow

Are you curious about the world’s most spoken language? Would you like to get to know some basic Chinese? Well, the Lexus course is designed for this. We will introduce you to speaking and understanding Chinese.

Is there just one Chinese language?

By Chinese we mean the language that is spoken on mainland China in the People’s Republic and which is sometimes also called Mandarin.

Isn’t it a very complex language?

The course will focus on the spoken language. And you might be surprised at its simplicity. We will open just a little window into the written language too, but that is not the main aim at this stage.

Who will teach me?

You will be taught and guided by a Scot who has a lifelong mastery of Chinese, an Oxford scholar who has lived and worked in China, and who understands the needs of the learner.

What is the location?

Classes will be held at the Gaelic School on Berkeley Street in Glasgow.

What is the schedule?

One class a week for 1 hour, classes to be held in the early evening, from 6.00 to 7.00. Course dates: every Tuesday from 30th October to 11th December.

What is the class size?

We aim to have classes of at least 5 learners and no more than 15 learners.

What is the commitment and cost?

In the first introductory block there will be just 7 lessons, each lasting one hour. The price for this is £56. In addition you will need a one-off purchase of the course book with an audio CD, costing £19.50. The course book and CD cover a lot more than the first 7 lessons. There will be further blocks of lessons after this starter, each block costing £56.

Interested?

Enrolment for the first block of classes will be held at the Gaelic school on 23rd October from 6.00 to 7.00pm. Course fees can be paid by cash, cheque or card.
