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.
Suitable for all learners looking to live, work and do business in China. This is a practical course that combines traditional HSK lessons with additional speaking practice and is suitable for a diverse range of learners.
Is a highly practical section of the course focused on helping you become confident in using Mandarin in daily life. The Survival Course generally spans 15 classes or more and will cover common vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation required for daily living.
Communication & Soft Skills
Effective communication is critical to mastering any language. We will focus on spoken communication beyond vocabulary and grammar, to effective articulation, etiquette, and culture.
If you have work ambitions with China, we will help you get there by teaching professional Chinese for work contexts. We will teach you vocabulary from the business domain (or your own relevant domain e.g. law, education), explain professional concepts and help you understand the relevant historical and cultural backgrounds.
We customise our lessons to your learning goals. Whether you want to prepare for an interview, give a speech, or write a report for your professor, we are here to help you. We believe in the learning principle of “directness” - making learning closely resemble the final context you will use the language in. Thus, we adapt our lessons to your immediate objectives to help you apply your learnings into practice.
For over 14 years, Lantern Lingo has helped students and professionals just like you master the Chinese language.
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.
Research shows the fastest way to learn a language is through full immersion and teaching the language in a way it will eventually be used. We forgo textbooks and instead focus on real speaking and responding in Mandarin.
Not every Chinese learner is learning for the same reason and at the same level of ability. Our 1-to-1 classes are 100% personalised to your individual abilities and learning goals.
Our learning approach, “Experience Chinese”, is based on decades of research into learning and memory science, and our own experiences teaching over 210 000 hours of lessons over 14 years.
Our teachers are highly sought after by students all over the world. All staff are certified
Chinese language specialists with at least 4 years teaching experience.
