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

Really enjoyed my month of study here! Staff was very supportive and professional. My teacher Ms. Wen (Wen Laoshi) has a great teaching method, and felt even in a group class the content was appropriate for my level. Also had a lot of fun in class and met some nice classmates.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

The location is very convenient. The facility is very modern and clean. A nice view of the Jing’an Temple in their waiting area. The front desk person is friendly. Our Chinese consultant was very accommodating and very quick to respond. Lastly, our teacher, made our class not boring. This was important because I was taking the class with my young son. My son is talkative, so I admired her patience with him. She had a way to easily remember Chinese characters, which helped me a lot. She was a great teacher, and we were happy to have her as our teacher.read more

I started taking a group evening course twice a week after my job while living in Shanghai. The teacher was friendly and motivating me the whole time. After a few weeks I felt my progress had improved quite a bit. The course consultant was able to figure out exactly the level I should be given that I had previously studied Chinese before. It was certainly much better than starting in the complete beginner classes. I also found that the staff has been friendly and the learning environment to be pleasant. The methodology I like best about this school is that the teacher takes notes for the class so students can focus on learning and not writing down the notes. read more

I signed up for a month of intensive Mandarin classes and ended up with ???, her method of teaching is very efficient & I've noticed a significant improvement in my spoken Mandarin. However, the intensive course doesn't cover written Mandarin, so you'll have to self-learn. Although 3 hours may seem long, time goes by quickly, as the classes are really enjoyable. The school is really new, the environment is clean and neat, very conducive for learning. I will be back for another month of intensive classes ????????read more

Totalmente recomendable. Llevo 6 semanas estudiando en That's Mandarin y estoy encantada. Destacaría la variedad de programas y su gran adaptabilidad. Sea cual sean tus necesidad o horarios seguro que encuentras una fórmula que te convenga. Además su programa de estudio es muy dinámico y su plataforma on-line te permite revisar fácilmente lo estudiado. A parte de todo lo académico, la escuela se encuentra en una zona muy céntrica de Shanghai i al lado de la estación de metro; tiene una ambiente relajado con zonas para tomar café y que te permiten conocer gente de todo el mundo. Realmente recomendable!read more

Hello~ I have been here now for about three months. It was great experience, of course it was very good choice to decide here to learn chinese. Even though it was very short time to learn one language, but I'm quite satisfied here. Now, I can understand and have a chat with Chinese, even though it's very simple. During our class, we keep talking with various kinds of subject, so if you dicide here, I'm sure this will be unregrettable choice. I'm highly recommending here for you, if you are addressing studying Chinese in Shanghai. Thanks.read more
