I've had an extremely enjoyable experience at this school. All members of staff are extremely professional and caring. I joined the one month intensive group class (beginner level). When I arrived I knew no Chinese and am now able to express myself in a number of situations. My teachers have been great and I am excited to continue learning Chinese in the future. The classes were fun and engaging . The course coordinators, Holly and Cannon went out of their way to make my stay in Beijing more enjoyeable. I can't thank them enough. Thank you to everyone at that's mandarin for making my time here so great!!read more

I started learning Mandarin using software over the last two years, but found That’s Mandarin once I arrived in Beijing four months ago. My speaking and listening have since skyrocketed under the engaging, systematic, and professional teaching and learning that occurs during each small group class. As a professional educator, I am thoroughly impressed with the pedagogy and demeanor of all of the teachers. As an added plus, their tuition is lower than competitors around the city!read more

Hello, Booked the course 2 weeks in advance. The member of stuff Cassandra was very responsive and helpful with organizing my course and sending all documents for my visa. At school all members of staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. Whatever I or my school mates needed something the girls at reception were always there to help. Especially would like to mention my consultant Holly. She is really good, helpful and made my studding process easier and more interesting. The teachers are really good, especially teacher Wang. In the beginning I had class lessons, but after a few weeks changed to one to one and it is worth of money. I would definitely recommend this school.read more

I'm taking one-on-one classes 4-6 hours/week, somewhere around HSK5/6. I'm using feature articles, documentary transcripts and other materials that are interesting and relevant for my work (I can choose them). This, the flexibility in (re)scheduling, and the teachers' skill at combining discussion of the material content with language learning have made the classes extremely valuable for me.read more

Amazing school! The staff is extremely professional and clear, I’ve been tested at the beginning and I’ve been able to start from the right level of competence. I really appreciate the teachers work and clarity, they are really making sure everyone understands and commits to the learning process. If you miss a class, they have a great APP that allows you to always study even on the go. This combination is extremely unique: That’s Mandaring is really the best school in Beijing to learn chinese and meet very interesting people!read more

I have attended several Chinese schools over the years, and That's Mandarin ranks right at the top. There are three points that have particularly impressed me. Firstly, the teachers are always well prepared for the class, which means they can quickly and precisely explain subtle differences between the new vocabulary. Secondly, the online system they have makes reviewing what you've learnt convenient and effective. Finally, and for me this is the most important, the teachers are ready to pro-actively correct your mistakes at all times. Many other schools' teachers will just let you speak and speak, without saying anything, even if you know you've said something wrong. My teachers at That's Mandarin are not the same - they call me out (politely :)), tell me where I've gone wrong, and that's how I improve.read more

I have been living in China for 5 years before starting having lessons at That's Mandarin. My Chinese level was intermediate, and I wanted to bring it to the next level. Since I started my lessons 9 months ago, I significantly improved my reading and listening skills. Lessons are very efficient as notes are taken by teachers during lessons: you just need to focus on learning. The web platform is amazing to have lessons and to review it. An app for smartphones is available to review lessons anytime, anywhere. Teachers are very professional, lessons are well prepared. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Lessons' schedule is very flexible and easily allow to match with your personnel agenda. I fully recommend to learn Chinese at That's Mandarin.read more

I am currently taking an online beginners course. Prior to starting this course, I was not able to speak a word of Mandarin. I find the course to explain everything very well. Most importantly for me, during my classes my teacher explains to me the formation and origins of words. This has really helped me to understand and not be so daunted by a completely new language. In fact it has made it all very easy for me. All of the staff here are incredibly helpful and help to answer any questions that I have.read more

1-2-1 classes are great. I've been coming for over a year, and my Chinese has improved a lot. The lessons are tailored to your specific needs and you go at your own pace. The availability of lessons is very good too, with classes in the morning, afternoon or evening, depending on your schedule. The school recently moved to a new building, which is very convenient for the subway, and has the latest technology. They also have an app which means you can study your lessons on the go, wherever you are.read more

Had a great time during my 3 months course with Thats Mandarin Beijing! The classes are fun and engaging, my chinese has improved from mere beginner to intermediate within such a short span of time. Despite being in a group class, Teacher Wen did a great job by tailoring to each of our learning needs. Will definitely be back for classes if I am back in Beijing!read more

I took classes for about a month with a friend. In that time we got a good introduction to Chinese tones and vocabulary; however, the more impressive feature was getting to know the background of Chinese characters. Our teacher was accommodating with our questions and patient with our mistakes.read more

I took lessons at That's Mandarin for three months, twice weekly in small group classes. The classes are very personalized as you can create your own vocabulary lists based on what you want to learn. In each lesson, the teacher types new vocabulary, sentences, and sentence structures in an online program that is accessible to the students after class. My Mandarin has greatly improved in such a short time and the teachers have given me confidence in my ability to speak more proficiently. I highly recommend Wen Laoshi for her enthusiasm and ability to accommodate students of varying levels.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
