Enjoy private Mandarin lessons designed just for you

We created a new kind of language school in London exclusively for adult learners like you. Your average language school prepares students for exams and certificates teaching a sterile language through irrelevant material and childish textbooks. That’s not what you get with us.

We know you wish to learn conversational Chinese to communicate with your loved ones, to experience a new kind of holiday, to open up new business opportunities and to discover China as a local. Our one-to-one Mandarin language lessons are designed just for that. 

What’s more, you enjoy total flexibility learning at your home, office in London or online at the time and days of your choice. Pay per lesson or pay monthly without contracts. There are no upfront payments, no registration fees and no hidden costs.

Whether you are a beginner or can speak some Chinese already you will find yourself speaking Mandarin from your first lesson with our structured and responsive method.

Learn to speak Chinese easily with a fast and adaptable method

Nobody wishes to go back to school.

Good news is that grammar jargon, word lists, boring exercises and childish textbooks are not the best way to learn Mandarin or any language effectively.

We believe every language learner is unique. Our teaching method is designed to adapt to your individual learning style by adopting what helps you learn, investing in your strengths and finding ways around barriers. You’ll learn Chinese grammar and vocabulary in relevant context that’s tailored to your language goals and role-play real-life scenarios that will build your speaking confidence in the relaxed and exclusive environment of a one-to-one lesson.

There’s no need to purchase any materials since our professional tutors never follow a single textbook. Our personalised Chinese language courses use stimulating content from diverse and up-to-date resources while providing you with personally developed files for your needs. Your tutor’s files will present simplified grammar in a clear and straightforward way and customised dialogues will introduce you to Chinese vocabulary in its actual practice.

What’s more, learning will not be based on your private-time homework. You will learn and progress during the lesson through speaking and listening exercises that your committed tutor will tailor for your level, learning style and language ambitions.

With us you learn Chinese as you’ll use it real life.

3 Language learning myths we prove wrong

Is Chinese difficult?

Literary Chinese might be. With us you’ll learn the language of today's China and develop strong speaking and listening skills to communicate confidently with native speakers, not Confucius.

Are adult learners slower?

Every language learner has a unique learning style which does grow more individual over time. A talented and dedicated tutor can discover it and unlock your unique way to learn fast and easily with our adaptable method.

Is strong memory important?

Memory is not the way you learn a language; interest and practice is. Our brain is programmed to retain what matters. An engaging and fun lesson practicing what you’ll actually say with your loved ones does matter.

What our students say

"A friend introduced me to Language for Life & Business, and I was impressed with how quickly they ascertained my level of knowledge. The lessons are varied, enjoyable, informative and (most importantly) tailored to my exact needs. I have no hesitation in recommending LL&B to others who are keen to develop their language skills."
Sarah Callan
"The grammar information sheets have been devised in a very clever way, with utmost clarity, to make complications as straightforward as possible. For the first time I have found a method that works for me and the language 'lightbulb' has finally switched on, without even a flicker, after just the first few lessons. Finally, I am getting somewhere in my language ambition!"
Carole Dawson Young
"My teacher was patient, thorough, and imaginative with a great sense of humour and a real passion for his subject. I felt supported when I was struggling but I also had real fun. He was flexible and accommodating as well as being very organised: the lessons were always structured but with space to explore and be spontaneous to discuss culture or role play conversations."
