HOW TO GET TO OUR CHINESE LANGUAGE SCHOOL
You can get to our school by taking Line 1 to Xinghai Square subway station, and then take Exit 3.
Our rooms are named after the signs of the Zodiac (Yes, it means there are 12 rooms in total) and are decorated as such.
Besides various sizes of classrooms, there is also an activity room with a mini library inside (we like to call it the “Sunroom” as it enjoys generous natural light from the south and east), a coffee room, and a computer lab.
☕️ 🍵 We offer water and other types of refreshments (depending on the season) in the coffee room to help you stay hydrated. Or you can always visit the Starbucks on the ground floor of the building.

Got Questions? We Have Answers
LEARN CHINESE IN SUZHOU Q&A
What will my Mandarin classes be like?
Part-Time Group courses include 4 classes per week.
Intensive Group Courses include 15 classes per week.
Class schedule for Private classes is flexible.
The class content is based on the course you've chosen, and the classes can vary slightly based on the teacher's personal style - but an average class usually includes a review of previously learned content, an engaging and student-centered input of new words & grammar, a reading/viewing section (of a related article or a video), and practice, practice, practice - which will help you convert the newly learned content into your active vocabulary.
Most importantly, you will be encouraged to speak Chinese as much as possible, and the classes will be held in Chinese. For more details, read the next 2 questions.
What will my teachers be like? Are they native speakers?
We have high requirements for our teachers, and only hire 5% of applicants. All our teachers are native Chinese speakers and are university graduates with majors in Chinese language education or literature.
They have also previously obtained a Teaching Chinese as a Second Language (TCSL, or TCSOL) certificate before they joined us and successfully completed That’s Mandarin’s mandatory Teachers Training Course (TTC).
Will the classes be taught in English?
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.
When is the best time to apply for a course?
We recommend applying at least 3 months in advance to guarantee you will get a spot in a program of your choice, with your preferred schedule. By applying early, you can also benefit from our early bird discount.
Besides, you will need to apply for a Chinese visa at least 30 days in advance and longer if you’re applying for a student X2 visa (for long-term Chinese courses only).
