Private Classes

While our popular language classes are ideal for those who can commit to a regular programme of learning, we also offer private classes in the workplace or in the Institute, tailored to meet individual learner’s specific needs.


The Institute has provided language classes and cultural briefings for clients in a range of business sectors including financial, retail, tourism and the arts, as well as a number of local and Scottish government clients.

Private class students are also available to time pressed individuals, business people or even to whole families moving abroad. Staff can deliver intensive one-to-one or small group language courses in the workplace or at the Institute. We also offer support classes to school students by special arrangement.


Through our expert colleagues in the University of Edinburgh we can also offer more focused briefings covering a wide range of topics such as:

  • Cultural briefings for staff being sent to China
  • Specialist briefings on cross cultural management
  • Industrial and competitive policies in China
  • China’s legal system
