Learn Chinese in Glasgow

Our teacher is off on his travels this year, so the class will be taking a break.

Here’s what a student has to say said about the Chinese Classroom, which she has been going to since October 2018.

“It has been a great experience being a part of this course and I have thoroughly enjoyed my early journey of learning Mandarin. Tom is a fantastic teacher. He has a great deal of knowledge and experience. He is engaging and brings a sense of humour which makes the classes even more enjoyable. I especially like how he brings a little something from China at each lesson ranging from images to cultural knick knacks and even a Chinese edition of Tin Tin!”

Would you like to come along?

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 schedule?

We are planning the next block of classes to start in the autumn. More details to be announced soon.
