Really enjoyed my month of study here! Staff was very supportive and professional. My teacher Ms. Wen (Wen Laoshi) has a great teaching method, and felt even in a group class the content was appropriate for my level. Also had a lot of fun in class and met some nice classmates.read more

Hallo. Last year in december I started with one on one classes at TM. As at the Moment I can only come once or twice a Month To Beijing I am very pleased the Way all the Office staff handle my requests. Especially Gabriella and Kitty. The learning Methode with the Computer is very interesting. And as up to now I find all the Teachers very helpful and can help you make good progress. The only negative side so far: the Price for the Lessons is quite high. Hanspeterread more

As an English teacher myself I would say TM is one of the better schools in BJ. Its quite expensive so I would honestly say only sign up if you're serious about your Chinese. There are similarities between their methodology and current ESL teaching methodology but there are also some differences which required some time for me to adjust to. Everyone is friendly and they have a decent Chinese speaking environment. If there was more outside of class support open to all students and if classes were more goal-oriented I would maybe give the school a 5.read more

that's mandarin has helped me exponentially improve my Chinese speaking ability from nothing within just two months. The online account logs all of the vocabulary and grammar you have learnt so if you're pedantic, like me, you can look over it and practice the tones to perfection. All of the teachers are very friendly and always willing to help making learning less of a chore.read more

I took one-on-one classes (3 classes per day for 4 months) at the Beijing school and the Shanghai school. It was quite a pleasant experience. The teachers are very adaptive and helpful to their students and their learning needs. Although, i was probably learning too quickly for my own good as i learned a lot but found it very hard to completely grasp the thought process of the language. I would recommend less classes over a longer period of time.read more

I have been having lessons at That's Mandarin for a year. I started off with absolutely no knowledge of Mandarin at all and it was very daunting! My teacher has been the same teacher the whole way through which has made the process much more personal and comfortable. The lessons are fun, interesting and engaging. The style of teaching builds on your gained experience/confidence. If I have ever ask my teacher to teach me something/show me something in particular, she has always been really helpful and positive. She quickly built up my confidence with Mandarin which made me much more enthusiastic to learning it! The admin & organisation is also good. There's no denying that learning a new language (especially Mandarin) is inherently difficult and requires a lot of input from the learner, but the teachers at TM really do help to support this. I really enjoy the teaching and lessons here.read more

I took one-on-one classes for four months at the Beijing school. The school's atmosphere is nice with plenty of tea/coffee if you want to spend some time studying before/after class. The teachers are all very friendly and professional. I found their teaching style to be very natural and felt my speaking/listening ability improved a lot in the time I was there. They were also happy to change teaching topics depending on my needs/goals. If I had to give any criticism it would be that I did not find the online app mandarincafe to be extremely useful and I ended up using the printed notes I was given, as well as supplementing with flash cards and apps like Pleco. However, overall it was an excellent decision and I am very happy with my progress. Thank you That's Mandarin!read more

I have been going to That's Mandarin for the last 3 years. Coming to China as an intermediate learner I found it hard to fit into group classes so I have always taken one-on-one classes. After a few months of regular classes using video lessons, my spoken Chinese really improved. After that, I used the school to help me prepare for HSK 4 and 5 exams. I really like the campus and use of technology to save class notes or keep track of my class schedule. The teachers are always friendly and also help me with questions about living in China.read more

My wife and I have been going to That's Mandarin for the past 2 years. It is considered to be the best school in Beijing among many expats who tried many schools. All the teachers and staff are extremely professional and at the same time happy and flexible. The fact that everything you learn goes straight into your web account so you have access to it at all times is a huge advantage. Another huge plus is that the Great Leap Brewery is about 40 steps away...read more

I really believe that their one-on-one intensive program can help make a difference in one’s Chinese language performance- my family and I have already come back to this school three times because of that. The last time I took the course I saw large improvements in my speaking confidence and my ability to recognize characters that were commonly used, but not taught in a typical school syllabus. The lessons were very relaxed and informal which makes them more engaging because you get to determine what you want to learn. I recommend it to anyone who is serious about improving their Chinese.read more

I really liked the fact that I could tailor my learning to the actual scenarios I experienced. The teachers I had were always willing to help me say the sentences I wanted to learn. Teaching me the proper sentence structure and parts of speech was also very helpful to know. I found it very helpful when one of my teachers encouraged me to try to speak in Chinese the whole time and she would use Chinese majority of time to speak to me even when to explain what a word means. Use of hand gestures and pictures without using English was also very helpful. Typing out all the sentences and words we talked about is very useful. Asking me to translate the pinyin to English and English to pinyin is a good teaching technique. I like that coffee, tea, and water is provided.read more

It`s good option to go on first free lessons to several schools and then choose. Personally I can recommend That`s Mandarin on JianAn Temple station, I`m taking a second course there. Teachers are professional and nice, always ready to help. We first learned how to comminicate in every day life, which were more useful than learning characters. But now we started them too, also do audio, plus writings in pinyin and text readings, so we can learn lot of words. Teachers speak fluent English, some speak Russian too. I like that after lessons we get printed texts and words that we`ve learnt during the lesson, but it`s not just text from books - we were talking with teacher and in groups, then a teacher writes it down. Thanks to the nice management of the School, all questions are always solved fast and I always feel free to aproach with anything 🙂read more

I started as a total beginner at That's Mandarin and I am taking one-on-one classes. I like the one-on-one classes because I go on my own pace and the times are very flexible. All the staff are very friendly and the teachers are very well trained at teaching Chinese. I also really like their platform. My pronunciation and speaking skills noticeably improved a lot. I would recommend That's mandarin to anyone who is trying to learn Chinese.read more

That's Mandarin Shanghai is an easily locatable school in Jing an, Shanghai? The staff are very friendly and always willing to accomodate requests. They speak good English and encourage Chinese usage. There are many students from all over the world from different ages. You can get classes at most times of the day to suit your situation whether you are already working in Shanghai or just here to study. They are very supportive and can specialise your learning to your needs. They are currently helping me take HSK exams which they will book for you. They also hold free Chinese corners each week should you wish some extra practice. Overall I am pleased to be studying at this school and have noticed a considerable improvement in my Chinese ability. I would recommend this school if you wish to learn Chinese and would suggest 1 to 1 classes as the best way to learn. It's really helped me stand out as a Chinese speaker.read more
