The Hanyu Shuipin Kaoshi (HSK) is a standardised test of Chinese proficiency for non-native speakers. Speaking Mandarin fluently is often the most challenging aspect of learning Chinese for non-native speakers.
The HSK + Speaking lessons teach the HSK syllabus (Level 1 - 6) with an additional focus on speaking and effective communication. This course brings together the best aspects of the traditional HSK course with the added benefits of additional speaking practice, enabling learners to reach fluency much quicker.
We have a 100% HSK pass rate track record, and guarantee you will pass the HSK exam with every HSK course you take.
Learners looking to learn general Chinese for daily life, become fluent speakers and pass the official HSK exams. Suitable for all ages and current learners include adults, college / school students and children.

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
