Chinese Products 

Hosting a Chinese style dinner party? Or just want some Chinese treats for yourself? Look no further than the New Loon Moon supermarket! Located in Chinatown, this is one of the largest Chinese supermarkets in central London and is home to a huge range of produce – over 3500 different items! It’s been visited by the likes of Jamie Oliver and the Prince of Wales and has also appeared on TV – a pretty good claim to fame!

Chinese Resources

Looking for extra resources to self-study at home? We love the Chineasy series – in particular the flashcards and workbook. The flashcards are a great way to help learners to memorise characters, and the workbook is perfect for putting it into practice. Give them a go!
