The Dragons Approach
It’s our mission to make learning a new language a fun, affordable and widely accessible experience.
We have been teaching Mandarin Chinese for over 15 years and we are now increasing our global offering with professional teachers of French, Spanish and EAL (English as an Additional Language), with Arabic coming in late 2021. Our flagship e-learning platform, Connect, combines real-time online teaching from experts with fun, interactive games to consolidate learning. This online model means you can truly benefit from our teaching from any location worldwide.
Whichever Dragons Teaching language course you choose, we can guarantee high-quality teaching and positive academic progress to foster a love of learning. That’s the Dragons Approach.Discover Connect

Cyrine Jaworski Head of MFL at The Petersfield School
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Dragons and the team. We felt very well supported in the organisation of this event and we appreciated the swift and timely response to our many enquiries. We received some very positive feedback from parents of students who participated and it is great to see that so many of them chose to complete some extra online sessions. Students enjoyed being given the opportunity to interact with native speakers. They also loved the games on the Connect platform.
Bianca Skinner Parent
Our teacher is amazing. I have never seen my daughter warm to anyone so quickly. She clearly understands small children and I love that she is using the first few classes to warm up to my daughter and introduce the language slowly. A great idea and approach.
Hub TV Production company, Clerkenwell
We organised Mandarin lessons for our team because we work with Chinese brands and thought it would be a fun activity to do together. Dragons did not disappoint. Our excellent teacher pitched the learning content perfectly and not only did we learn, we enjoyed it enormously. Dragons comes highly recommended and we would love to work with them again in the future.
Answers to common questions
Frequently asked questions
How do you recruit your teachers?
All Dragons’ teachers go through a rigorous vetting and selection process that follows the Department for Education’s Safer Recruitment guidelines. Our teachers are predominately based in the UK and Taiwan and we maintain our own single central register of all their relevant and vetted personal information.
How old does my child have to be to study a language with Dragons Teaching?
Our courses are perfectly suited for students starting in Key Stage 2 (age 7-11) and go right through to GCSE level in all of our languages. For Mandarin Chinese we are also able to offer a starter course that is suitable for Key Stage 1 students (age 5-7).
My child has some prior language learning experience; how do you assess their level and find the right starting point for them?
We will provide a free demo and level assessment session with one of our experienced teachers to help finding the correct starting point for your child.
Can my child learn together with their sibling(s) or friend(s)?
Yes! Providing that the children are of a similar level and age, learning together in a small group is a great way to learn and is even more cost effective than learning individually.
