‘Learning to speak Putonghua at Mandarin Inn has been a really enjoyable experience. The environment of the school is friendly and relaxed, and the teachers are dedicated, professional and encouraging. The school is flexible to student's individual needs and learning style: for example I could combine both group and individual classes. On top of that, the school offers experiences in Chinese culture, such as Spring Festival traditions, how to play MahJong, and even Dragon Boat racing.The French Concession location is convenient and interesting. I highly recommend Mandarin Inn for an interesting and fulfilling learning experience.’
