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.

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…

I’ve been studying Mandarin at MandaLingua for over a year now, in one to one courses with my teacher, Hong Yu, three times per week. The location is perfect for me, as it’s People’s Square location is very convenient for me to call in by on my way home after work. The language school has been very flexible to allow me to fit classes around quite an un-predicatable schedule. It is a very nice environment to study in, with comfortable, well lit classrooms and a relaxed professional environment. Hong Yu is a great teacher, with a great deal of patience for a student like me that unfortunately doesn’t have time for too much self study outside of the class room. I feel my mandarin has progressed a great deal in the last year, and this has been very much due to MandaLingua and Hong Yu.
