There has never been a more pressing need for children to learn languages other than their mother tongue. We work with a wide range of age groups in both state and independent schools to help prepare pupils for a global community.
Our flagship e-learning platform ‘Connect’ breaks down geographical barriers, meaning that schools worldwide can benefit from learning Mandarin, French, Spanish and EAL (English as an Additional Language) with our expert Dragons teachers. All our teachers are trained in Dragons’ teaching methods and pedagogy and use our textbooks and online series. Our books have been written to provide an accessible yet solid foundation for learners of all abilities.
Every school is different and we have a variety of structured approaches available to suit your school’s needs. We can offer language teaching as part of the curriculum to suit your school timetable, or we can provide co-curricular language provision as an after-school club or post-exam enrichment programme.

Why work with Dragons Teaching?
Years in business
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.
Lex Lang Deputy Head, Caterham Prep School
Connect has been a revelation. We were initially a little uncertain about remote teaching, but recent events have only made the world start to catch on to what they were already offering. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
David Sheppard Executive Headteacher, Leathersellers’ Federation of Schools
I have had the benefit of seeing Dragons work in two very different schools. In both Dragons had a positive, transformational impact – not just on the pupils studying the language but on the culture of the school. Dragons provided excitement, innovation and aspiration to the curriculum and the young people.
We’re accredited and partnered with the best in the business.
‘My Week In…’ is a great enrichment activity for pupils after SATs, 11+ or summer exams! Discover our exciting programme today.

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.

In addition, and as mandated by the ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education (2020)’ documentation, full references and overseas checks are conducted on all of our teachers.
