‘As a person who loves and teaches languages, I totally recommend to learn mandarin at That’s Mandarin, I’ve been a few years in China self studying until I decided I needed help improving my Chinese, that’s when I decided to join the school, in a few months I saw results, I improved fluency and learned lots of useful day a day vocabulary. I started with a group class, according to my needs and recently started one on one classes in order to prepare for my HSK next year. I’m very happy by the results I’ve gotten so far and I’m excited about all the things I still have to learn. Welcome to China, and welcome to That’s Mandarin!’
'That's Mandarin is a great school for people who want to learn Chinese Mandarin. I'm currently signed up for 1:1 classes and I must say I couldn't be happier. Every money spent on is absolutely worth it! Teachers are nice and skilled. They make learning Mandarin easy, a real pleasure and give you a reason to smile even when you're most tired. What I love the most are their periodical reports on my performance, which help me get better and realize what stage I'm at! The cherry on the pie: the staff is always reachable and willing to help with anything. I would recommend That's Mandarin school to anyone in Shanghai willing to learn well the language!'
‘Let me tell you why you’ll love That’s Mandarin (Shanghai):
- Excellent teachers and teaching methods that encourage students to comprehend new material fast and understand more about Chinese culture.
The classes are very informative, having not more than 6 students in a class creates friendly and lively atmosphere, and above all, more attention is given to each student individually. Basically, after a clear explanation, the teachers get everyone to practise and our group can move in our own pace.
After only two months my Chinese friends noticed that my Chinese improved a lot! I am so happy!
- Amazing location. Just WOW. Really, it’s just a step from the famous Jingan temple. You can see center of Shanghai, there are many places to enjoy before and after the class. Also it has a great view from 23rd floor where school is located.
- Unlimited coffee and tea. You can sip your tea during the class and enjoy learning with your friends!’
‘A terrific and supportive teaching school. My children have attended two summer camps in Beijing and I have enjoyed many months of online lessons.’
'That's Mandarin is absolutely an excellent school to learn mandarin. I signed up 1 to 1 lessons and the classes are very worthwhile. Every class we review the words learned in the previous class and at the end we review the lesson we just had. At the end of the package of lessons acquired, the school also makes a report about every student progress learning mandarin with them. The teachers are very nice and their classes are absolutely very enjoyable. The staff is always contactable at short notice. I felt I've progressed a lot with them over the past few months.
Definitely a school to recommend to everyone who wants to learn mandarin fast and well!'
'I have done one visit to the That’s Mandarin school and now am studying online from Sydney Australia. I've done many other classes, and TM is easily the best I've had. Teachers are excellent, and more importantly, the content is exactly what I am looking for. Useful, conversational and each class follows on from the last making it easier to remember and build on. I actually look forward to my lessons each week!'
'That`s Mandarin is located just next to Jing`An temple. It is a very centric place from where you can go to any other place in the city. Besides, it is surrounded by many restaurants and bars where locals and foreigners mix. Regarding the lessons, the intensive course is designed for very small groups which is very convenient to practice you Chinese with the teacher. Classes focus on speaking and listening, which is perfect to make you Chinese speaking skills more fluent. In general the ambient is cool and very young, so you can meet people from around the world easily. I highly recommend That`s Mandarin!'
'My kids have joined the summer camps 3 years in a row and each time, they are enrolled for 4 weeks. They are still loving it! The variety of topics and flexible teaching have kept my kids (ages 7, 9 & 11) interested in learning mandarin. The website where all their lessons are logged in enables me to followup on the topics they discussed in class & continues their learning at home. Thank you to That's Mandarin for making learning the chinese language a fun and meaningful journey!'
