Our Courses

Personalised 1-on-1 and Small Group Classes

We have pioneered one of the world’s best approaches to learn Chinese.

1-to-1 HSK & Speaking Course
Overview
The HSK is a standarised test of Chinese proficiency for non-native speakers. Speaking Mandarin fluently is often the most challenging aspect of learning Chinese. The HSK & Speaking lessons teach the HSK syllabus (Level 1 - 6) with an additional focus on speaking and effective communication. We have a 100% HSK pass rate track record, and guarantee you will pass the HSK exam with every HSK course you take.
Learners
Learners looking to learn general Chinese for daily life, become fluent speakers and pass the official HSK exams. Learners include adults, college / school students and children.
Pricing
Lessons start from AU$45, US$30, RMB130. Prices vary according to experience of teacher and number of classes purchased.

1-to-1 Business Chinese Course
Overview
Our 1-to-1 business course builds China-ready business leaders. These personalised lessons focus on business-related speaking, reading, writing and cultural understanding. We teach Chinese business culture, simulate working environments and run meeting simulations. We also adapt every lesson to your particular needs e.g. find vocabulary and re-create scenarios related to your industry.
Learners
Learners looking to pursue a career or lead a business in China. Learners include business executives, managers, lawyers, entrepreneurs, MBA students, scholars and ambitious students.
Pricing
Lessons start from AU$55, US$40, RMB200. Prices vary according to experience of teacher and number of classes purchased.

1-to-1 Spoken Course
Overview
Our 1-to-1 spoken course makes you a fluent Mandarin speaker. Spoken Chinese is critical and mostly neglected by traditional classroom learning and HSK preparation courses. In our 1-to-1 classes, we nurture your speaking abilities by providing diverse speaking scenarios and stimuli. Our Spoken course is renowned in China, and referenced by top universities (Peking, Tsinghua, BLCU) around the country.
Learners
Suitable for all learners looking to live, work and do business in China. This is a practical course combining traditional HSK lessons with additional speaking practice, for a diverse range of learners.
Pricing
Lessons start from AU$45, US$30, RMB130. Prices vary according to experience of teacher and number of classes purchased.

Small Group Courses
Overview
These lessons are small group classes of 4 - 6 students with an experienced teacher. The small group classes will cover HSK and Spoken Chinese, and lightly cover  work and business Chinese. These classes are highly interactive and discussion based, where you will be constantly speaking and learning in Chinese. Small group classes bring a social element to learning at an affordable price.
Learners
Suitable for all learners starting their Chinese learning journey. We currently offer Small Group courses for HSK 1 and HSK 2. We believe 1-to-1 classes are more effective for advanced learners.
Pricing
Lessons start from AU$20, US$15, RMB65. Prices vary according to experience of teacher and number of classes purchased.

Accelerated Learning Methodology

Fourteen years of teaching and research into linguistics and memory science enabled us to develop the “Experience Chinese” methodology, which increases a Chinese learner’s speed by 200 - 300%. Our methodology focuses on full-immersion learning, conversational fluency, cross-cultural communication, spaced repetition and active recall.

How Lantern Lingo Works

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

We provide a free 30 trial minute 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 a 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.
