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

I have a great time studying Mandarin here and just purchased an extension to my group-classes. Friendly atmosphere, flexible arrangements and good online resources (web-page and app) make studying easy and accessible even for those of us who have busy days at the office. Teachers are well prepared, speak good English and will try to adjust their classes to your level. I would happily recommend this school and I can mention that my employer compared That's Mandarin with several other schools in Shanghai and found this to be the best choice for us.read more

This place has made all the difference for me in my Chinese study. I tried many different private tutors before coming to That's Mandarin, but I didn't see much improvement and was often frustrated. When I got to TM, I realized that there was a big difference in the training of the teachers there. They are very flexible and very aware of how to help you improve. I recommend this place to any expat coming to China, whether for a short trip or longer stay.read more

Mandarin is obviously one of the most important languages to study in the modern world. At the same time, for many native English speakers, it is probably the most difficult (widely spoken) language to learn. However, studying at That's Mandarin has turned what was initially a daunting task into a daily joy. I have been taking 5 day a week 2-on-1 classes for 2 hours/day. My course consultant has been incredible in helping me to arrange a schedule that is flexible and that makes sure to meet my study goals. Everything is very personalized to ensure that you learn at the pace that is best for you and at the same time all of the staff are extremely professional. Most of all, I absolutely never could have imagined before beginning classes how talented, understanding and helpful my teacher would be. To improve in any language, practice is essential. But what has made my experience so great is how much fun practicing in class is rather than tiring. Though I learn a lot and am challenged daily, I leave feeling energized and motivated rather than sluggish and demoralized, whether I made many or few mistakes that day. Another thing to consider is that Mandarin is a tonal language that uses characters (Hanzi), so having the expertise of a native speaker's ears and eyes, as well as a small class setting is absolutely crucial in getting feedback on your mistakes, especially in the early stages. The environment created by my teacher, the feedback, explanations and exercises she provides in class, all have been the foundation for my overall positive experience so far in Shanghai as a whole. I strongly recommend.read more

The reviews people left online were what guided my decision to contact That's Mandarin, so it seems fitting to leave one myself for anyone else trying to figure out where to begin their study of Mandarin. At first I was not sure what to expect, but within a day of reaching out to the school, I was assigned my course consultant, whose consistent professionalism, transparency and responsiveness made the visa, payment and scheduling process extremely fast and easy. Most importantly, she placed me in a personalized class with my current teacher, who is perfectly suited for my needs, in fact better than I could have ever imagined possible. While I have limited experience with other teachers at the Shanghai school, I can confidently assert that my teacher (especially through immediate immersion, fast-paced conversation practice and the story method) has helped me drastically improve my speaking and listening in only a couple weeks and lay down a solid foundation for an accelerated pace of development in the weeks to come. At this point even my native language is inadequate to express my gratitude to her and everyone there who made our time together possible.read more

I am doing 1-1 lessons and I am learning very fast. Teachers are very well prepared, all lessons are available online for reviewing, including videos. Teachers write notes and give you a hand out at the end of each lesson. The best thing is that teachers can adapt the learning to your need and speed. Highest marks from me!read more

There are many positives about this school. The first is the people are willing to listen potential and current students so learning goals are met. The second is the learning app- it allows you to review what was learned in class. The third is my instructor. He formed a we-chat group for me and my classmates and is willing to provide insight when class is not in session.read more

Let me tell you why you’ll love That’s Mandarin (Shanghai): - Excellent teachers and teaching methods that encourage students to comprehend new material fast and understand more about Chinese culture. The classes are very informative, having not more than 6 students in a class creates friendly and lively atmosphere, and above all, more attention is given to each student individually. Basically, after a clear explanation, the teachers get everyone to practise and our group can move in our own pace. After only two months my Chinese friends noticed that my Chinese improved a lot! I am so happy! - Amazing location. Just WOW. Really, it’s just a step from the famous Jingan temple. You can see center of Shanghai, there are many places to enjoy before and after the class. Also it has a great view from 23rd floor where school is located. - Unlimited coffee and tea. You can sip your tea during the class and enjoy learning with your friends!read more

Great place to learn Chinese! Classes are conversion/vocabulary based so it’s helpful to follow up studying characters on your own. Be warned - the classes move quickly in small group, if you don’t stay consistent it’s easy to get lost!read more
