Learn Mandarin in the heart of Mayfair
With over a billion native speakers making up 15% of the world’s population, Mandarin is the “lingua franca” of the future. Learning it is essential to keep up with today’s commerce, news and diplomatic relations. Yet, many get intimidated in learning the language because it seems difficult and unfamiliar.
Here at Limkokwing London, we show our students how learning Mandarin can be fun and simple.
We have teamed up with highly accomplished teacher and author Ms. Haitong Wang to offer a language programme tailored for professionals. Fun and practical, our short courses emphasise often under-taught emotional expressions and cultural nuances.
Take advantage of our close ties with China and broader Asia. Enrol and become part of the University’s supportive community of students and alumni from more than 150 countries. Your journey to learning Mandarin starts here at Mayfair.
Fantastic and enjoyable

Great ambiance. Great value.
“Ms. Wang teaches in a fun, accessible style and at a moderate pace. We get to practice Mandarin in class and her warm personality makes speaking in front of others feel comfortable and enjoyable. The classrooms are historic, spacious and contribute a great ambiance to the class experience. The price is very reasonable, given its location and the fact that Ms. Wang is a highly accomplished Mandarin teacher. I learned so much in a short time, yet it felt easy.”
Mandarin can be fun, simple and practical
“The lessons really connected me to the practicality and simplicity of Mandarin, something I was not expecting. The teacher was able to make someone like me—who is both busy and (easily) distracted—engage and understand. Authoritative and patient, she made sure everybody in class participated. Rather than teaching rigid phrases, she helped us build our own sentences. I can completely see how, with disciplined study, I can speak Chinese with such an accomplished teacher.”
