OF OUR STUDENTS
"What I’ve really enjoyed about Mandarin Community, among other things, is the low pressure sales. At other schools, I’ve felt harassed and had sales staff constantly calling or wechatting me to get me to buy more classes. I’ve never felt that at Mandarin Community and I’ve actually enjoyed dealing with the customer service staff. They’ve been very helpful with a variety of situations, not just regarding Chinese classes. I can go to them with questions about anything related to life in China."
"I’ve really enjoyed the small class sizes at Mandarin Community. The small group classes don’t exceed 4 people, which is the perfect number for ensuring that everyone gets a chance to practice speaking and ask questions, but you can also still socialize and learn from your classmates. I also really like that the teachers plan our lessons themselves instead of relying on one size fits all software. It means that the teachers really are planning in accordance with our individual needs."
"Mandarin Community holds a lot of fun activities that have helped widen my knowledge of China and also helped me to make new friends. We do stuff like movie nights, dumpling making classes, majiang game night, and tea ceremony workshops. Mandarin Community has also organized events to support charities in Shanghai and a lecture series to help foreigners learn about setting up a business in China. I like that the events are not just fun, but also useful."
"Mandarin Community is located in a great spot downtown within 3 minutes walk from People’s Square. It’s so easy for me to get here and the area is full of great Chinese restaurants so I can grab something to eat quickly on my way to or from class.
I like that the school is located inside of a traditional Chinese neighborhood where I can talk with the residents and get a glimpse of traditional Shanghai life."
"Mandarin Community teachers love their jobs and I feel like they are partners in my learning. The teachers here are always prepared and excited to start class, they are true professionals who are invested in my learning. I’ve studied at other schools where it was so obvious that the teachers didn’t really regard teaching Chinese as their career path. To them, it was just something to do until something else came along. They were disinterested in my progress. Mandarin Community teachers are the exact opposite!"
