Chinese Courses: Why Learn Chinese with Cactus?

Learn Chinese and your language skills will be in great demand. With an estimated billion people in China and as a country growing in size, economic power and global influence Chinese is key in doing business in the Far East. Cactus Language delivers both Mandarin Chinese courses and Cantonese Chinese courses in the UK and in China.

Mandarin Chinese stands out as the most spoken language in the world with more speakers than any other language, and various other parts of the world speaking it. With all Chinese dialects sharing one writing system of over 40,000 symbols, of which you have to study at least 3,000 in order to be considered literate, the language is inherently difficult but fascinating to learn. Cactus Language offers Mandarin Chinese courses in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong and Cantonese Chinese courses in Hong Kong. With the increase in demand for Chinese speakers in the West, those who take the time to learn Chinese find their efforts are greatly rewarded.

In addition to the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan, Mandarin Chinese extends past Chinese territory to be spoken in the important and influential Chinese communities of Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines, and Mongolia. Significant numbers of international companies have long-term investments in China and knowing Chinese gives a competitive edge in most industries. From a one-week Chinese language course to a full academic year of Chinese in linguistic and cultural immersion, we will help you chose the right Chinese course for you. Our Chinese classes are taught by qualified and experienced Chinese language teachers, in accredited schools that offer the best facilities and central locations.
