Kay Cheng, Legal Mandarin Course

'As a King's student I chose the MLC as it was convenient and the level of teaching is very high. Learning a Chinese Legal course is not a standard language course. Our teacher met with us, tailored a course to our needs and made our courses fun, interesting and more importantly, effective. 

I learned a number of technical legal terms in Chinese, and have felt my oral and comprehension skills vastly improve'. 

Sean, Italian Tailor-Made Course


'As a fan of Italian opera and culture, taking this course rapidly improved my language development. I had a short period of time to learn but the teacher and I developed a intense learning programme to ensure my needs were met'.
