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!

That’s mandarin school has been super helpful in processing my Student visa. The school is modern and clean. My teacher is very professional and patient and with my classmates we have a great time each class. It has been really nice to meet new people and friends in Shanghai too. From all the schools I visited this has been by far the best one and would recommend 100%.
