“I can have lessons with Chinese teachers from around the world from the comfort of my own home at times which are worked around my work schedule.

Genuinely can't recommend these guys enough for anyone looking to improve their Chinese level, or for complete beginners looking to learn a new skill.”
CHRIS - Dublin
“If you are looking for one on one online Chinese lessons, I highly recommend Institute of Chinese.

The Chinese live lessons with my personal tutor are really engaging and the interactive content which is based on the HSK curriculum is excellent.
Flexibility, convenience and great teaching.”

“I'm loving my 1-on-1 online lessons with my tutor and I'm now doing two 50 minute sessions a week with the Institute of Chinese.

My lessons are so interactive, the online curriculum is fantastic & I love that I can access my course notes and vocab, plus I can ask questions in between each session”
