Unique Teaching Method:

Image of Learn Chinese in North London - for children & adults• We know it is tough to learn Chinese with thousands of characters and five different tones. Our unique and innovative teaching method cleverly combines computing power and multimedia technology to make learning Mandarin Chinese an enjoyable, easy, and effective learning experience.

• We aim to help beginners develop their communicative competence in the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, while gaining an appreciation of the Chinese culture.

• Our computer-aided courseware gives students access to audio, visual, and textual information about Mandarin Chinese all at once. Chinese typing is systematically integrated into our e-learning program to facilitate the acquisition and retention of new vocabulary. It helps to improve word recognition, listening and pronunciation.

• Most parents say their children enjoy learning Chinese and are willing to study on their own initiative after using our computer-aided courseware.

Parent Testimonials:

•  “I would like to say a big Thank You to Hua Hsia Chinese School for teaching my daughter Persephone YouLin from the age of 2 in the Nursery class to taking her GCSE last summer, and achieving her A* in Chinese.

As a non-Chinese speaking family, all tribute goes to her and the school, in particular, Katja and all her teachers throughout the 12 years she’s been at the school. She’s had great fun at the school participating in all the many activities arranged by the school and the Friends of Hua Hsia over the years. I’m glad to say Persephone has decided to carry on with her Chinese studies this year. Thank you and Well Done Hua Hsia!”


•  “When I was told about the grade my daughter Monica has gained in her AS Chinese exam, I was elated. Although the teacher Senji has predicted she will get grade A, I was not entirely convinced for the Chinese examination is not easy, especially for children who are brought up in non-Chinese speaking environments. I would like to thank Senji for her patience in teaching Monica and also believing in her.

Monica has been with the school since Nursery until now where she is studying for her Chinese A Level. She has enjoyed the lessons in the past and still enjoys learning Chinese...The teachers in Hua Hsia Chinese School are dedicated and committed in teaching the children to learn the beautiful but rather difficult language. 

The children here learn to read and write Chinese, at the same time being taught about the Chinese culture. I am grateful to Katja and all the teachers for their dedication, commitment and hard work. Keep up the good work!”


•  ”We are all delighted with Anna’s A grade in her Chinese GCSE. Learning Chinese with Hua Hsia Chinese School has been such a positive experience for Anna.

She has loved going for her weekly lessons and the staff always made such an effort to help her in her studies, particularly during the GCSE years. We don’t speak Chinese so it was always reassuring to know that she was in good hands!”
