Welcome to the Mandarin language and to Mandarin language courses with Euroasia.
Why learn Mandarin
In terms of native speakers, Mandarin is the number one language worldwide.
Over the last hundred years, China has been a country of revolutions, and the current economic revolution is perhaps as important as any: never before in human history have so many people seen such a rapid transformation in their economic fortunes. China is now set to become the world’s leading manufacturing nation, and perhaps one day its biggest economy.
China is a hugely important trading partner for New Zealand, with many New Zealand companies considering how to take advantage of existing links and develop new ones.
Opportunities for Mandarin-speaking Kiwis are likely to grow enormously in the future, as the need for New Zealand companies to have a presence in China grows.
There are many opportunities now for Kiwis to teach English in China.
China is home to one of the world’s oldest civilisations, exceptionally rich in architecture and art. Over the centuries, it has also made huge contributions to science and technology.
China is a fascinating country to visit, huge and diverse, its attractions ranging from the Great Wall to the Himalayas – via some megacities along the way!
Chinese cooking is world-renowned, and knowledge of a little Chinese may help you to understand more of what you eat!
Many Mandarin-speaking tourists already visit New Zealand every year, and this number will almost certainly grow in the future.
New Zealand, of course, has a large Chinese community, and there are plenty of opportunities to learn more about Chinese language and Chinese culture here.
Chinese Mandarin Individual Classes
Teaching on a one-to-one basis means we can provide the kind of teaching you require and at your pace. Individual teaching is available either at our centre or at a location to suit you. Individual teaching can also be done via the internet.
Teaching on a one-to-one basis means we can provide the kind of teaching you require and at your pace. We can also offer two-to-one, three-to-one etc. We consult with you to find out your specific requirements and to gear the course accordingly. Some people, for example, only need to develop speaking skills; others might just need to read reports or papers in a particular language.
Whatever your goals and targets, we do our best to ensure that you achieve them as effectively and as economically as possible. Our teachers for private tuition are specially chosen for their skills in managing this type of teaching. Dates and times are arranged to suit you. Please contact us for more information.

“To connect people across cultures”
Our Mission Statement
“To provide the best foreign language and cross-cultural services in New Zealand”
We started as the European Language Academy (ELA), founded in Auckland in 2000.
This was a boutique European language school, geared to the teaching of the most popular European languages. ELA was then joined by the Asian Language Academy (ALA), founded in 2006 as a complementary Asian language school.
ELA and ALA were not just language schools: the two academies also offered a range of services to businesses and to schools. In New Zealand, we were pioneers in the area of cross-cultural consulting services.
As the company expanded, we created an umbrella brand to cover all the services we provide. The name we chose was Euroasia – to reflect the world we wish to open up to New Zealanders and our vision of connecting people across cultures.
We have our head office in Auckland, but we provide our language and cross-cultural services across New Zealand.
In July 2007, Euroasia was recognised by National Business Review as the 3rd most exciting company within the New Zealand education sector. We have a proven track record as the premier private provider of foreign language training in New Zealand, with over 5000 Kiwis having completed courses with Euroasia.
