Language Services Direct provide professional Mandarin lessons that are specifically tailored to your requirements.
Mandarin language training with our carefully curated teachers can be arranged for different levels, corporate skills, and durations to match you or your employees’ needs.
We aim to meet the specific goals you have for Mandarin language training in the most cost-effective manner. You will experience a personalised, flexible service that is created specifically to suit your needs.
When you get in touch with us, one of our team will contact you to discuss your learners’ purpose for learning Mandarin, any other details or requirements of your course, and to arrange an assessment of the learners’ ability.
Once we have an initial idea of your needs, the best Account Manager will be chosen to become your single point of contact. Your Mandarin course will then be handled entirely by that person and the process from here onwards becomes very simple for you.
We keep an extensive database of trusted trainers and so once we have your requirements, we will search for the ideal Mandarin language tutor for your learners.
The search can get very specific, if that is needed for your course. As an example, if your team has a need to improve negotiation in Mandarin, then your Mandarin teacher will be one who specifically has negotiation training – and perhaps even has experience in your sector.
Together with the teacher, we then craft your Mandarin course to your specifications, taking into account the availability of both your team and the teacher, what the teacher thinks needs to be focused on first, and your required time scale.
Our Account Manager will then communicate all of this information to you in a clear, simple, and concise manner, and arrange all the set-up procedures.
The Account Manager will stay attentive during the Mandarin course. Any questions that come up can be made to them at any time, and progress will be monitored at regular intervals. If the learner’s HR or L&D department managers require any sort of particular details or progress information, your Account Manager will ensure clear reports are sent through at whatever frequency is desired.
This step is one we pay particular attention to, and the reason in two-fold. Firstly, return on investment has to be made clear to you if this course is going to make any sense for your company. Secondly, the learners’ need to actually be satisfied with what they are learning and how they are learning it, so we need to make sure they are constantly able to give any feedback.
In the wide collection of Mandarin language training providers, it can become difficult to decide which is most suitable for your organisation.
Below are the top 3 reasons why most organisations choose Language Services Direct for their language training needs. You decide if our services suit your requirements.

A clear return on investment is an obvious requirement for any service that is seeking to achieve business goals – and so is a defining feature of any language course we provide. Additionally, our focus on creating highly customised courses of exceptional quality means we have had to become very efficient.
