Course testimonials:

  • said: I did not do the Level 1 with this group as I had studied Mandarin before. I found the focus on grammar very useful, but would have liked more emphasis on accurate pronunciation. The tutors ability to explain the use of phrases in different real life contexts was excellent and made the course really valuable if intended to use the language skills in China.

  • said: Material is covered at a measured pace with good opportunity for practice and revision in class. Tutor is great with any questions, tips and feedback and there is a nice class vibe. Looking forward to Level 3!

  • said: Student gave 4 stars

  • said: Interactive course and our teacher was great in sharing information about Chinese culture

  • said: I would like to say a special thanks to my tutor Fang Zhao for another great course learning mandarin (Level 2). Fang, once again, did an excellent job, great interpersonal skills, very patient and friendly, ensured we introduced ourselves at the beginning of the course, so we can get to know each other. She always encouraged us to ask questions in the class so everyone can benefit and learn from the response, which was very helpful.
