With a campus near Shanghai Library and a campus in Yangpu, GoEast Mandarin offers courses such as preparing for HSK exams, focus on characters, survival Chinese, spoken Chinese (to help you chat with friends), and business Chinese. Like most Chinese centers, here you can choose how you want to learn from offline group classes and 1-on-1 tutoring at their campuses, to online classes for those with busy, unpredictable schedules. For families, GoEast has special child-friendly classes (suitable for ages 4+) where the language is tailored to hold the interest of young kids to spirited teens. They also hold regular community events for their students, such as movie nights, mahjong lessons, and Chinese calligraphy sessions plus vocabulary workshops for language you may need to learn fast, e.g. how to talk to your Didi driver.

Our teachers and language consultants work together to provide the best experience to every student – whether it’s for daily or business Chinese.

From the time I walked in the door, I could tell GoEast was different. With a dedicated but fun team and a relaxed environment, this is the one place I feel confident recommending Chinese classes to foreigners.
I’ve had various teachers over the years, but I recommend going with GoEast. They are professional, flexible, and very passionate about what they do. I don’t even regard them as teachers anymore, but as friends and family. Once you GoEast, you never go back!
About a year ago I started looking for a Chinese training center. GoEast, conveniently located with flexible lessons, was a natural choice. Through their classes, I have quickly improved my language level. By hosting evening events, organizing travel groups, and developing unique learning methods, GoEast provides a supportive community for all their students.
The school firstly helps us students to find our personal motivation and tailor-fit their teaching methods accordingly, respecting our strengths and weaknesses. The fact that the school includes a cosy open cafe, invites lecturers and organizes cultural trips, shows their involvement of social integration. It is focused on more than just teaching a language by book, but wants to build a sincere yet very tolerant and calm community open to share with anyone willing to enjoy a genuine china experience.
Two different people recommended me to come to GoEast. Starting from the HSK 1 I now reached a HSK 3 level in only four months. I learned different languages before but was never so engaging like here: this is the perfect place to feel comfortable and having fun getting immersed in a different culture. Studying at GoEast enriched not only my Chinese, but also the feeling I have of this country.
I recommend Emily and the GoEast team for anyone looking to build Mandarin proficiency.
