Your child’s Chinese learning experience starts here:

GoEast Mandarin has taught Mandarin to thousands of adults since 2012, and since 2014 to children aged 12 and below. We’re a Mandarin school in Shanghai and online with a great reputation among teachers & students.

In our courses for children, we focus less on grammar (compared to adult classes) but lead your child through conversations, games, puzzles and activities, developing an intuitive feeling for the Mandarin language, and to become conversational.

Our online courses for children include:
