Student Reviews of our School

Barbara Ex

I’ve been studying Chinese for a while, and found it really hard to find a Chinese language school with experience teaching upper-level students. Mandalingua matched me with a great teacher who works at my level, keeps me engaged, and tirelessly corrects my mistakes. Mandalingua is really concerned with providing real value and quality service for its students.

I was studying Chinese for two years in Chongqing University before I moved to Shanghai, but still had a feeling that it was not completely enough. I lacked deeper grammatical knowledge and my conversational skills were not that fluent. I found Mandalingua by chance when browsing Internet. I immediately liked location of the language school (right in the centre near the People's Square), and when I came for a visit, I was pleasantly surprised with a nice and friendly atmosphere, spacious and sunny classes, great management and teaching personnel. My teacher, Liu Weipeng is a high profile professional and I am grateful for the efforts he had put into my education. There was a specifically tailored course that included everything that I needed: we researched grammar, read business-oriented texts and just had a good chat in Chinese. In the end I decided that it was a high time for me…

I found a great Mandarin language school located in the heart of Shanghai. The place is restful; the people are friendly but most importantly the classes are professional and clear. The Western management did a perfect job writing the books in a Western way helping them to understand the Chinese language. In the past I had a lot of Chinese teachers (Chinese people) but the language didn’t make sense to me. Now with the Chinese Teacher here at Mandalingua the language makes sense and I am glad I joined MandaLingua! Her comment in her mother tongue: Een erg professioneel opgezette school in het hart van Shanghai. De leraren zijn vriendelijk en aardig, de ruimte is rustgevend en er is aandacht voor jou en jouw Chinees. Door de Westerse insteek zijn de boeken heel duidelijk en is de taal begrijpelijk. Ik heb al veel Chinese leraren van Chinese afkomst gehad en…
