How Lantern Lingo Works

01. Join Your Free 1-to-1 Trial Class

We provide a free 30 minute trial lesson for you to experience our learning method, and for us to gauge your current abilities. During the trial class, we will ask you a number of questions and ask you respond in Mandarin (to the best of your ability). After Trial Lesson 1, our teacher will help you build an individualised learning plan and help answer any questions relating to tuition and fees.

02. Book a Trial Package (Get 50% Off)

If you want to explore learning Mandarin with us further, we currently provide a half-price trial package (either 1 lesson or 4 lessons). These lessons are designed for you to start learning Chinese, meet your regular teacher and experience lessons at Lantern Lingo. Although we make a loss on these classes, we want to help you get started with your Chinese learning.

03. Take Regular Weekly Classes

Each week, we will have at least one regular 1-to-1 class with your teacher. Our lessons don’t revolve around textbooks or powerpoint slides, but instead revolve around YOU. Each class is personalised to you and focuses on speaking, comprehension and reading / writing. Your teacher will summarise new words, grammar structures and concepts you learned during the lesson, and provide custom revision notes after every class.

04. Revision Classes & Progress Updates

Research into learning and memory science identifies “spaced repetition” and “active recall” as critical to learning Chinese. We schedule regular revision lessons every 5 - 6 weeks to ensure you never forget what you learn. We also provide a mini-test every 10 weeks to assess your current Chinese abilities. This lets us update your study plan and schedule, helping you learn more effectively.

05. Receive Your Personalised Book & Certificate

At the end of each course, we will combine all of your personalised notes created after each lesson, to create a personalised book you can use to revise your Chinese. We will provide you an e-book and can mail a hardcopy of the book to you. You will also receive a certificate for your CV and a personalised evaluation to inform your future Chinese teachers your current level of ability.

06. Pursue Your China Dreams

You join our 3000+ strong family and alumni network. Our students have gone on to lead companies, governments, universiites and social enterprises between China and the world. Our alumni are CEOs, consultants, lawyers, entrepreneurs, social change makers, academics, teachers, scholars and more. We support you beyond just Mandarin learning, and support your career ambitions and China-dreams.
