We want to make language learning fun, affordable and accessible to everyone. As the UK’s specialist in Mandarin Chinese teaching for over a decade, we provide everything learners need to become confident in Chinese.

Our expansion into Spanish and EAL leverages our hybrid Connect model, combining lessons with professional, passionate teachers with fun and varied activities on our Online Learning Platforms.

Whichever Dragons Teaching programme you choose for your school or child we guarantee high-quality teaching which engages students to foster love of learning with positive academic progress.

Ways to work with Dragons

Learn online

Our flagship DragonsConnect programme is a hybrid learning platform which combines quality teaching with fun and interactive games and activities. Small groups ensure all students get personalised attention and teachers provide regular reporting to schools and parents throughout the course.  

Teaching in schools

It is a key goal of our business to facilitate the learning of languages in schools, both at primary and secondary level. We’ve found remote teaching to be really useful for this and we have also created an online learning platform which involves progressing through language interaction and gameplay.

What people are saying

We’ve worked with over 500 schools to introduce their students to Chinese

Bethany School have been delighted to work with Dragon’s as our partners in introducing and delivering Mandarin this year. The quality of their Programme is excellent and our Year 7 pupils have really enjoyed their learning experience with the lessons being delivered to an outstanding standard. The pupils have particularly enjoyed the interactive online resources which form the basis of much of their prep and have made excellent progress as a result.
Steve Winter

Deputy Headteacher, Bethany School

The thorough planning and structure of the Mandarin course, the provision of materials, textbooks workbooks and online resources, and most of all the professionalism and enthusiasm by Marcus and his team have meant that Mandarin very quickly established itself as an integral part of the MFL Department at KGS. Pupils have been studying the language enthusiastically and are motivated to continue to IGCSE level.
Tanja M Russell

Head of MFL, Kingston Grammar School

Dragons is an exemplary provider of Mandarin teaching. I have worked with them for more than six years and the results they have achieved teaching young people in a non-selective comprehensive in Inner London have been spectacular. The quality of the curriculum, the outstanding nature of their teaching and their ability to work seamlessly within a school’s timetable are all factors that have contributed to that success.

The story continues…

I am thrilled to announce the next chapter of Dragons Teaching! Over the past decade, our love of Chinese has created strong and long-lasting relationships with hundreds of students, families and schools. We are now able to bring additional languages and programmes to clients new and old in forms ideally suited for the post-pandemic world.

We care deeply about fun and interaction going hand in hand with language learning, which is why we are proud to expand our groundbreaking Connect platform to Spanish and EAL learners alongside our continuing focus on Mandarin both live and online.

I would also like to thank all our teachers for their enthusiasm which has inspired everyone that we’ve met over the past 10 years. As an educational company, our teachers and staff have always been at the heart of who we are. I look forward to the future and hope you will join us on this journey.

Here’s to the next 10 years!
