Here at RLI, we offer bespoke Chinese language courses for international business, relocation or personal development; covering Cantonese and Mandarin courses.

‘Chinese’ refers to a group of languages and dialects spoken within China, with Standard Chinese (or simply Mandarin) being the dialect that is used systemically as the common language among the speakers of the different Chinese varieties, including Cantonese and other dialects of Mandarin.

Chinese is recognised as an official or minority language in many countries and is an official language within the United Nations.

Additionally, with around 16% of the world’s population speaking Chinese as a native language, and many more second-language speakers and learners across the globe, Chinese is one of the most useful languages to learn for business, international trade, or just for fun.

You have always been tremendously customer focused, listening to our needs and matching them greatly with the right teachers. You have been a good observer as well and when I was just about to drop German because of my busy schedule, you found a new teacher who could provide a different method, encouragement and keep me going.
