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 been studying Chinese for quite some time but haven't had a chance to apply it. Therefore, a classmate and I decided to spend a few weeks at a language school in China. We are very happy to have chosen Mandalingua for several reasons. They have great, competent and patient teachers, the environment is conducive to learning and whenever possible they adjust the pace of the lesson for maximum results. We highly recommend this school.

I spent the last 4 months studying Chinese with MandaLingua in a private course. The whole administrative process from registration to my final lesson went very smoothly and I always felt welcome at the language school. Even though I "only" had 10 lessons a week, I was surprised how fast my language skills evolved from week to week. This surely is the advantage of learning a new language being on the ground in China, so you can practise what you've learnt during class wherever you go. The course content was well balanced between speaking, listening, reading and writing but also included cultural sections where I learnt interesting and sometimes surprising things about Chinese history, Chinese culture or everyday life in China. A big thank you goes to my teacher Sun Changhai who was always very dedicated and patient. I greatly enjoyed my lessons with him and especially appreciated our talks…
