Shanghai is the most amazing city I have ever seen, the MandaLingua School is great and I'm having a unique experience here! With professional and highly qualified teachers, as well-structured board of directors and an innovative didactic material it becomes much easier to learn Mandarin! You can feel that the people are happy working in the language school and they put this delight into the classroom and you can learn more, well-motivated and having a lot of fun. I enjoyed my few month here studying Chinese with Mandalingua. I will take a lot very nice monuments back to my home. I can recommend Shanghai and the school to everyone who wants study Chinese. Thank you very much MandaLingua to give me this great opportunity to make a great experience in China.

I've just been taking a few Chinese classes back in Switzerland before I left for my 6-weeks of intensive study at the Mandalingua language school, I therefore wasn't really able to speak by the time I arrived in Shanghai. Thanks to my motivated and everyday well-prepared teacher my Chinese improved very fast though! After classes I used to go to see different places in Shanghai and always tried to apply what we've learned in classes, and I really was able to understand and communicate more with native Chinese speakers day by day. Once you study at Mandalingua, you should also participate at the events the school offers. By doing so you can get to know more people and learn something about the Chinese culture at the same time. I am really happy that I've taken the decision to study at Mandalingua, I will never forget these 6 weeks I've spent…

On moving to Shanghai, I began learning Chinese on my own. Though I made some progress independently, MandaLingua was recommended to me by a coworker, and I’m extremely pleased with the instruction I’ve received. The Chinese courses are well structured and professionally run and provide the fundamentals necessary to learn a language as complex as Mandarin. I recommend MandaLingua both as a foreign language enthusiast and as a working professional looking to make the most of experiences abroad.
