Mandarin Chinese in Dublin

Dublin is one of the most multicultural cities in Ireland, and this shows in the more than 150 foreign languages spoken here. The Chinese community, in particular, is one of the most populous around the city, with more than 15,000 people who claim Mandarin as their native language, according to the 2010 census. Furthermore, most of this population are monolingual speakers, meaning others must speak Mandarin to connect with this community. So, if you would like to interact with this group on a deeper level, experience Dublin’s Chinatown like never before and apply to jobs available only to bilingual speakers, get in touch with us at Language Trainers and get started with a Mandarin course. Our lessons are completely personalised to suit your needs and requirements, so you will be able to study Chinese no matter how busy your schedule!

In these uncertain times, it can be hard or scary to continue traditional face-to-face language lessons. But don’t worry: at Language Trainers, we offer online classes to suit your needs and schedule! Reach out to us to know more about Mandarin Chinese classes.

Why Study Mandarin in Dublin

Learn Chinese for Work: Learning Mandarin in Dublin will certainly help you broaden your professional horizons and make new business connections. For example, if you are looking to establish a company in China or would like to expand your existing business into overseas markets, you should get in touch with the Ireland China Business Association on Fitzwilliam Hall—a not-for profit organisation that, since 2000, has been promoting friendly business relations between these two nations by identifying key areas of potential cooperation. Additionally, given the importance of trade between Ireland and China (two-way trade between Ireland and China is estimated to have exceeded €15bn in 2020), more and more local companies look to expand abroad. Thus, businesses like Hays, Bytedance and Activision are looking for bilingual employees who can communicate with their overseas customers, so start studying Mandarin Chinese today and get the competitive edge your career needs!

Learn Chinese for Culture: Work aside, you will also be able to experience the ancient Chinese culture in Dublin without ever leaving Ireland. For example, you can take part in the spectacular Chinese New Year Festival that takes place every year. Established in 2008, the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival celebrates the Lunar Year with joy. You can either volunteer to help with the festival’s organisation or just enjoy the parades, games and performances to celebrate the new year like a true Chinese person! Meanwhile, if you are more interested in cinema, you certainly cannot miss the Silk Road International Film Festival every March, an event that features over 90 films from all over the world, but with a special focus on Chinese movies. Forget about needing English subtitles and enjoy the movies in their original language after taking some lessons with us!

Learn Chinese for Social: Learning Mandarin in Dublin will also allow you to connect with others who share a similar passion for the Chinese language and culture. If you are looking to practise what you learn in your Mandarin course with Language Trainers, for example, you should join the China Ireland Social and Cultural Meetup. This language exchange groups gathers together people interested in improving their listening and speaking skills in Mandarin. If that is the case for you, then don’t hesitate to join them and put your new Mandarin skills into play in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere! And if that talk leaves you hungry, you and your new friends should enjoy a taste of delicious Chinese food in the many themed restaurants around the city, such as Good World Chinese Restaurant on Great George Street or Ka Shing on Wicklow Street.
