We have some good news to share with everyone.
For the past few months, we have been renovating our second school on Jiaozhou Road, and the renovation is now complete!
That’s Mandarin has always been dedicated to providing its students a conducive and cozy learning environment, and we’re confident to say that our newly-renovated school will certainly be one of the best places to learn Chinese in Shanghai in terms of teaching and school environment.
Both of our schools in Shanghai are located right in the heart of Jing’an, one on Yuyuan Road and the other on Jiaozhou Road, which means they’re easily accessible by public transportation. The newly-renovated Jiaozhou Road campus is only 5 minutes away from our Yuyuan Road campus on foot. It’s literally only a few steps away from Jing’an Temple subway station, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants around the school.
The use of modern technology remains to be a big advantage at the Jiaozhou Road campus as each classroom is equipped with a computer and a screen.
Students can also focus on learning, speaking and listening, and not worry about taking class notes – during the classes, the teacher enters all the new words and phrases into our online learning platform Mandarin Café, and the notes are available for review anytime. All the classrooms are designed to conduct both individual and group classes. Useful Chinese phrases and sentences can be seen on one side of each classroom’s wall to remind you that it’s time to speak Chinese.
Lounge Area: relax, Study & Socialize
In addition to these bright and spacious classrooms, there will be an elegantly designed communal area for students to relax and make new friends. While waiting for their classes to start or during breaks, students can choose to do a bit of reading in our cozy communal area or simply enjoy a cup of aromatic coffee (free coffee and candy are always on offer at That’s Mandarin).
This redesigned school aims to give all our students a feeling of harmony, as well as a feeling of being at home, a place where they can have an enjoyable experience of Chinese learning. If you would like to learn Chinese, we would love to see you at our Jiaozhou Road campus!
