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.
