Shanghai subway is one of the most convenient ways to get around the city. Shanghai has more than 17 subway lines that link the city, with stations mainly set near top destinations and hubs. Fares typically average anywhere from 3 to 9 yuan, depending on the distance traveled. You can get a Shanghai subway card at nearly any station - via an automated machine or a ticket counter.

I’d like to mention as I got huge progress just in three weeks, because my express was very rusty, but with my teacher’s help I can express in a proper way.

Frequently Asked Questions

GET YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

What is the course schedule?

The schedule is Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 11:50 am. There will be 3 classes per day, with 50-minute classes and 10-min breaks in between.

What are your teachers like? Are they native speakers?

All our teachers are native Chinese speakers, highly qualified and experienced in teaching Chinese to foreigners. They are university graduates with majors in Chinese language education or Chinese literature.

Before they join us, they have to obtain a Teaching Chinese as a Second Language (TCSL, or TCSOL) certificate, and successfully complete That’s Mandarin’s mandatory Teachers Training Course (TTC).

We have high requirements for our teachers, and only hire 5% of applicants.

What teaching materials do you use?

We've developed our own teaching and learning methods. We use our own in-house Chinese learning platform NihaoCafe for all classes. You will be able to find all your class materials, read the teacher’s comments, review your lessons, and schedule your classes.

Will the classes be taught in English?

All of our classes are taught in Chinese to give students a fully immersive Chinese experience. Even for absolute beginners, our teachers will only use limited English to help you understand them. Our teacher will use pictures, videos, signs, and gestures to help you learn.

As your Chinese level progresses, less and less English will be used in your classes and you will be able to understand more and more Chinese every day.

Isn’t learning Chinese for 3 hours a day too much?

Absolutely not. This way you will be able to absorb more information than if you learn Chinese only for an hour or two per day. Besides, there are 2 short breaks in between the classes, so that you can relax and get along with other students.

What will my progress be with this intensive Chinese program?

Your progress will be the fastest with this program among all our group class programs. You will complete 1 TM level in 4 weeks. Our level system is the following: TM1 = HSK1, TM2 = HSK2, TM3+4 = HSK 3, TM5+6+7+8 = HSK 4, TM Advanced Level = HSK5&6 (the content is customized).

Do you provide accommodation?

Yes. We can help you to arrange your accommodation in Shanghai. Please contact us directly to get more information.
