Where To Study Mandarin in Kenya

mandarin-chinese-text With the increase of Chinese in Kenya, both in construction, real estate and business, knowledge of this language has become the new thing. Contrary to popular belief, mandarin is not that hard, just need some good time investment and you will be good.

Now just for a clarification, the people from China are referred to as Chinese and the language, Mandarin. Many refer to the language as Chinese which really is not the case.

As the demand for the language rises steadily with time, so does the training centers which are offering the course. I’m going to list down several centers where Chinese language is offered so feel free to choose which one is best. The list is not by any hierarchy though some might be familiar.

  1. Confucius Institute – University of Nairobi (Recommended)
  2. Confucius Institute – Kenyatta University (Recommended)
  3. Language Connections Centre
  4. Kenya Institute of Foreign Languages and Professional Studies
  5. Intragrobal Training Institute
  6. Trans-Eastern Airlines Aviation College Main Campus
  7. Williams college of professional studies
  8. Futurecom institute of professional studies
  9. Skyways Aviation Training Institute
  10. Unity College of Professional Studies, City Campus
  11. Adaptive Business School
  12. Trans-Eastern Airlines Aviation College, Airport Campus
  13. Kenya Institute of Professional Studies, Nairobi
  14. East Africa Institute of Certified Studies
  15. Parapet Hospitality and Business Institute
  16. Vision Institute of Professionals
  17. Regional Centre for Tourism & Foreign Languages

        I am a student at Kenyatta University, living in Mombasa too!!! This is my 5th month learning Mandarin. I take most of my lessons online- echineselearning , listen to as many audios as possible, practice characters every day. I spoke to the director at my University and requested that we have Confucius at Mombasa Campus from next year, they said it is possible!!! I’ll keep in touch.
