YOUR COMMUNITY TO LEARN CHINESE
Mandarin Community is founded on a set of principles that include doing the right thing and treating everyone with respect.
We offer a wider variety of Chinese classes than you usually find at a Mandarin school and organize lectures on relevant life skills such as how to find a job in China or how to set up a business.
We also host fun events such as movie nights and book clubs. Every year, we also plan to organize more volunteer events so our community can make a stronger positive impact in Shanghai! We have a WeChat group where members share information relevant to expat living, ask questions about China, Chinese language, and culture.
We are community-oriented!
All of our teachers are greatly experienced and highly qualified with excellent communication skills.
Each one of them has an approachable teaching style
aiming to reflect students learning style.
Teachers are genuinely interested and are commited to
They will work with you to help you meet your language learning goals.
