Our Weekend Chinese Course in London

A unique method and small class sizes make our Weekend Courses an extremely enjoyable and effective way to learn Mandarin Chinese...

Regardless of your current level - whether you speak absolutely none or just some - our aim is to have you conversing in Chinese by the end of your weekend with us!

As you will see from the testimonials we have received, at the Paul Noble Language Institute we really teach you how to speak Chinese. With us, you will learn how to communicate in Chinese and how to formulate your own ideas and thoughts using Chinese.

When we teach, we don't use complicated grammatical explanations that simply confuse people and we don't ask people to memorise long lists of vocabulary - because experience has shown us that this simply does not work. Instead, through 1-to-1 interaction, we show our students how to build up the language, step by step, so that they are actually speaking independently in Chinese by the end of their two days with us! And this regardless of how little, or how much, they know when they begin!

You will also find that the language we teach is designed to be adaptable, so that you will be able to use it just as easily for travelling in China as for working there – it will be just as easy to use it to order a cup of Chinese tea as to hold a conversation with the attendant who brings it to you. And this regardless of how little, or how much, you know when you begin!

By the end of your two-day course, you will have learnt to speak Chinese the way it is really spoken.

In short, you will:

  • have acquired an extremely useful set of Chinese vocabulary.
  • be able to speak real, adult Chinese, as it is spoken in China.
  • be able to construct your own sentences in the language, rather than simply to parrot a few memorised phrases.
  • be able to use the present, past and future tenses.
  • be taught for two full days by either one of our highly qualified native speaker instructors or by the Institute's founder, Paul.
