Our Story

Corpus takes its name from Cambridge University’s Corpus Christi college, alma mater of Corpus founder, Amy Tsai. Using techniques based on our founder’s experience at the University of Cambridge, Corpus has developed a fresh, innovative yet internationally renowned teaching methodology, delivering a unique, practical and fun educational experience.

Corpus Mandarin, Singapore

Corpus Mandarin’s decision to establish a branch in Singapore is deeply rooted in the personal experiences and professional journey of our founder and director, Amy Tsai. Amy’s gratitude towards the Singaporean expat families who supported her during her early teaching career in London sparked her interest in bringing her expertise to Singapore. Having taught Mandarin Chinese to students ranging from primary levels to GCSE, Amy was inspired by the dedication of Singaporean parents to their children’s education and their appreciation for innovative teaching methods that yield tangible results.

Moreover, Amy’s exposure to the Singapore Ministry of Education’s primary curriculum during her time in London not only facilitated her students’ connection to Singaporean cultural heritage but also provided her with insights into the country’s history, values and lifestyle. With a solid academic background in linguistics from the UK and practical experience serving multinational companies with Singaporean roots, Amy recognised the opportunity to cater to the language learning needs of expat families and corporate leaders. Her vision is to leverage her unique overseas experiences to design language courses that are not only effective but also culturally relevant and relatable to the Singaporean context.

By establishing a branch in Singapore, Corpus Mandarin aims to fulfil Amy’s aspiration of supporting expat families and companies with top-notch language education programmes tailored to their specific needs. With Amy’s passion for teaching and her commitment to delivering high-quality education, the new branch promises to become a beacon of excellence in language learning within the vibrant landscape of Singapore’s educational ecosystem.

Corpus was founded with a clear mission: to become the best online language training service provider in the world by leveraging technology and delivering linguistics-driven teaching across the virtual classroom.

Our founder and senior Corpus Stars are language enthusiasts who are passionate about providing quality education to clients all over the world. We noticed a major gap in the language learning industry: technology was being underutilised, leading to inefficiencies and a lack of engagement in the classroom. This led us to create a solution that would revolutionise the industry and set a new standard for language learning.

Our team of highly qualified and experienced teachers began to integrate cutting-edge technology into our teaching routine to make learning more interactive, engaging and effective. We use state-of-the-art virtual classrooms, software, educational tools and gamification techniques to create an immersive learning experience that inspires students to stay engaged and enjoy the learning process.
