The Best School to Learn Mandarin!

I arrived in Shanghai in 2015 to work and, at that time, I had only a basic knowledge of the language. After my arrival,I decided to start having classes at Silk Mandarin, and I have only positive things to say about my experience there. The school is very professional as well as down-to-earth and easy-going. The teachers are dedicated and versatile. I know that I am not the easiest student to teach but I have learned a lot during my classes at Silk Mandarin!

Probably the best option for full-time workers in Shanghai

I joined Silk Mandarin school at the end of December, 2017, so basically, I started the new year with learning Chinese. Before I joined I had checked some other options available in Shanghai, but was totally charmed by teachers and other staff in this school, so agreed to join immediately and never regretted. My way of learning foreign languages (English is not native language and my second foreign language was Finnish, haha) is through asking a huge number of various questions about grammar, vocabulary and other things, and here I can get absolutely all the answers to all my questions. I find their style, approach in teaching Chinese very professional and high competent, I’m absolutely sure, that this school can help you find the most suitable way to study Chinese. Prices are various and in my opinion are absolutely affordable for all kinds of students. I’d highly recommend everyone to apply for courses in this school and you definitely will find not only teachers and classmates, but rather really great people and, who knows, maybe even friends 😊

How can this program be improved?
Not sure yet, because I've only spent one month here.
