Course testimonials:

  • said: Great place to learn!

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

  • said: The course, good teacher, the class
