Student Reviews of our School

Kate Shapkina

26 – 35 , Kazakhstan

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'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.

18 – 25 , Switzerland

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…
