18 – 25 , Indonesia

One of the unforgettable experience here is while I am studying Chinese with MandaLingua for 2 months, the staff does welcome the foreigners like me, and also there is Mr. Homfeld and Mr. Bardaro, who always ask my condition with my study in MandaLingua, and so far, it’s good, I have no problem here because MandaLingua has professional teachers to teach Chinese. The teachers are really helpful; they will listen to our problem and give us good advices and solutions to solve the problems. They are also friendly and patient, they would share their experience with us and vice versa (just like a conversation between friends) and they teach me patiently and always give us good and simple explanations to make me understand quickly. I hope I can study Chinese longer here, and after I graduated from the university, I have a plan to come back to MandaLingua because their…

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…

I largely chose Mandalingua for the support received pre-booking & arrival in Shanghai. This was by far superior to other companies. I am pleased to say that this did not stop there. The class material is developed in-house and well-structured but the great teachers are also flexible in their approach & additional material taught for an individual`s needs. Sue`s support, professionalism and general love for languages, alongside her genuine friendly nature was fantastic for my early stage of Chinese learning & first ever visit to China.
