Mandarin for Children: a fun and educational weekend activity

Our Mandarin lessons for children aim to teach Chinese language and culture in an engaging format. Our students join us to learn Mandarin and/or prepare for the YCT exam every Saturday, from 10 am to 12 pm, at any of our two locations in central London. In the meantime, you can enjoy some of the amazing activities to do in the area!
