About Us

Little Dragons Chinese Language School provides fun and effective Mandarin classes for children aged 4 – 12.

The company was created by mother and linguist, Helen Pollock, Programme Director. Helen started learning languages at the age of seven and has never looked back. Her lifelong love of languages led to her studying French and Italian at degree level. Helen began teaching French in primary schools as an extra-curricular activity and was impressed and delighted by how quickly the children picked up the language and by how much they enjoyed the classes.

In recent years, as China becomes the world’s largest economy, Helen wanted to create a high quality Mandarin programme designed for English-speaking children. Luckily, UK Qualified Teacher David Jones crossed Helen’s path and the Little Dragons online programme was born. David, known as DJ Mandarin in our video lessons, has Qualified Teacher Status and both created and implemented a highly successful Primary/Elementary level Mandarin course at the prestigious Brighton College. Now, David brings his Mandarin magic to children worldwide through our online course, alongside video co-hosts native speaker MoMo and puppet Mr Panda.

Lessons will continue to be added and the curriculum will be gradually extended to take students up to GCSE level or beyond.
