🏫 About Mandarin House (MH)

Over 20,000 students from 80+ nationalities have chosen Mandarin House as their Chinese language school and our expertise and reputation in helping students achieve their Chinese goals is second-to-none.

We are proud to have won international awards, reached the strictest quality accreditation standards and to have employed only the best teachers and staff who are all dedicated to one thing: ensuring you learn Chinese as fast and efficient as possible.

2014 is our tenth year of Mandarin teaching! Our mission remains the same; we want to ensure you learn Mandarin on your terms, quickly and efficiently.

Our Awards

Sometimes it can be hard to take something at face value in China and difficult to tell whether a school is speaking the truth or simply just speaking empty words. Talk is cheap and by making the claim to be China’s premier Chinese language school we feel obliged to share some of the recognitions and awards we have received from within China and internationally.

One of our proudest achievements has been the recognition we have received from voting language study abroad agencies and organisations for the ‘World Language Provider Star Award’ as awarded by Study Travel Magazine. In 2008 we were nominated as the first and to-date only Chinese language school and have since been nominated a further 5 times culminating in being awarded the top prize for the category in 2009 and 2013.
