In depth: Our Mandarin Courses for Business in London

1:1 and Group Mandarin Courses in London

Our Mandarin Courses in London can either be arranged on a 1:1 or group basis. While the majority of our clients will choose to opt for a 1:1 Mandarin Course, group sessions prove to be great value for money. Although group sessions are good value, they will require the commitment of all those involved, and participant numbers should not exceed 6 candidates per course. If you require faster progress then a 1:1 Mandarin Course in London will be better suited to your requirements, as the course can be fully customised to the individuals needs while focussing on their specific strengths and weaknesses.

Mandarin Course Management

All of SIMON & SIMON’s Language Courses are overseen by one of our highly experienced and multi-lingual Account Managers. Before the start of your Mandarin Course in London we will send you a profile on your trainer, followed by a Course Plan and relevant course materials. We will then also equip you with a Progress Report after every 40 hours of completed training.

Mandarin Course Locations & Schedules

SIMON & SIMON have experience arranging Mandarin Language Courses in a host of various locations. Our global network of language trainers means that no matter where you are, we will be able to organise a Mandarin Language Course for you, not only in the UK but in almost any major city in Europe and beyond.

London Mandarin Course Schedules

Our Mandarin Courses in London are run throughout the year, from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. Weekend courses can also be accommodated upon request. Many of our students will attend multiple sessions each week, if work commitment allow so, but most will attend just one 90 minute session weekly. The majority of our clients will choose to arrange their Mandarin lessons for within their own offices, so as to minimise travel, however we can also arrange your course for within your own home. Full-time residential Mandarin Courses can be arranged as well, enquire with our offices regarding available locations.

Mandarin Course Content

Your Mandarin Course in London will be fully customised to your previous Mandarin experience and personal goals. Before the start of your course we will comprehensively assess your level of experience and discuss with you in detail your desired aims and goals. You may have little to no experience of Mandarin and only wish to develop basic conversational skills, or you may be slightly more proficient and wish to develop your fluency when discussing business topics. Whatever your objectives, a Mandarin Course in London which has been tailored to your needs is sure to meet your goals.

About Mandarin

Standard Mandarin is a standardized form of spoken Mandarin, based on the Beijing dialect of Mandarin Chinese. Standard Mandarin is the official language of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (ROC, also known as Taiwan), as well as one of four official languages of Singapore. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. About one-fifth of the world’s population, or over one billion people, speaks some variety of Mandarin as their native language. Linguists often view Mandarin as a language family, though owing to China’s socio-political and cultural situation, and the fact that all spoken varieties use one common written system, it is customary to refer to these generally mutually unintelligible variants as “the Mandarin language”.

About London

London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom. London has the biggest population within Europe with over 8.6 million residents. However, this is not the largest population London has seen, with the current population equivalent to the population 76 years ago. To cope with the extreme population of London, there are approximately 10000 miles of sewage pipes underneath London.

London has been a major settlement for two millennia. Founded by the Romans, who called it Londinium, London retains its square-mile mediaeval boundaries where you will find today’s financial and business hub of London. London is a leading global city, with its strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence as a city. London is the world’s largest financial centre alongside New York and has the largest city GDP in Europe.

London is home to 43 universities which forms the largest concentration of higher education institutions in Europe. In 2012, London became the first city to host the Summer Olympic Games three times. London is also leading the way in transport and is home to London Heathrow airport which sees the largest amount of international passengers pass through it compared to any other airport in the world, and is also home to the London Underground which has annual passenger numbers of over 1.25 billion.

Assess Your Mandarin Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Mandarin language trainer in London can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Mandarin in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
