46 years

Have you learnt Chinese in the past but can't seem to use it in real life situations?

This happens when you are translating and not communicating

A central concept of our learning approach is communicative competence: the learner’s ability to understand and use language appropriately to communicate in authentic social environments. 

This approach goes beyond repetition and memorization of grammatical patterns in isolation. Accuracy and fluency are stimulated by speaking activities, role-plays and real-life simulations thus providing meaningful contexts and a desire to use the language.

With this, you will ultimately be able to: 

Have fun as you learn with our interesting lesson structures and interactive activities

Retain the language longer as you learn in a natural way

Learn the language faster for effective communication

Am very glad that I had an opportunity to learn Mandarin at inlingua. The environment is excellent to practice and progress more. Each and every staff are approachable and encourage well for learning. It’s proud feeling for me to say that within very short period I was able to learn a lot. It was possible only because of best teachers and materials. The way they teach is marvellous, no words about it. In total, I enjoyed learning at inlingua, and if time permits will be back soon.

K. G. Nguyen,


Thank you for your teaching and helping me while I’m in inlingua. I really enjoy the Chinese course and now I can chit chat in Chinese with my friend; can watch Chinese movie, I think it’s so amazing. Once again thank you a lot my teachers.  

I have studied at inlingua for 2 months. Teachers are teaching well. At inlingua, I study for 5 hours a day. It’s quite long time but I’m satisfied with this intensive course. My class have only 4 students so I have a lot of chance to speak Chinese.
