American Student Online Class Review

Coming into the Silk Program, I had 0 experience in Chinese. The only language I could speak was English. I started in the middle of July with no knowledge of speaking, tones, or writing, and now I am studying for the HSK3 test. That being said, studying Chinese as an American has been extremely challenging, but studying at Silk has made the process quite enjoyable. They tailor the classes to your schedule to help you get the most out of their program. I personally work two jobs so I don't have the time to dedicate myself full time to studying Chinese. My teacher understands this situation, so we set up classes and workload accordingly.

Lastly, I want to speak a bit about my teacher Yanqin. Starting my first class I felt so uncomfortable with myself because I didn't know anything. Really, Yanqin made me feel very comfortable from our first class. There was no judgement on my abilities, but rather patience and understanding. We are taking Chinese step by step and I can feel the improvement each month. Our first class we could only talk about what our names were, but today we talked about the Coronavirus vaccine.

It really has been an amazing journey to learn Chinese and I think that learning at Silk (online) is a great investment of time and money. I highly recommend this program 10/10 for everything (staff/teachers/program).

Best Mandarin Language School for Foreign Students!!

I’ve been a student of Silk Mandarin since 2017! My first experience was when I enrolled in the Summer 4 week immersion course. I flew over from Australia especially to live and study in Shanghai so I could fully immerse myself in the language and the culture. This truly fast tracked my learning of the basics enough for me to continue my lessons online and now have progressed to HSK 4! My most recent teacher, Gemini has been instrumental in my improvement and confidence with the language. Her teaching style and patience with me has contributed to my progress immensely and I truly appreciate her! I have grown very fond of Silk Mandarin and all of the staff over these 3 years, so much so I consider them all, my friends...

Silk Mandarin Online Class

Since the outbreak of the covid 19, I have taken online classes. Personally, I think there are more benefits than face to face classes. First, it is more flexible to adjust the class schedule. Also, the platform is quite a user friendly that the student improves their Chinese skills by writing Chinese characters themselves and sharing the screen with teachers. Even communication with the teacher is good because of a good internet connection. I am really satisfied with the online class. I would definitely recommend the online class to my friends.

Gemini’s lecture

She provides a wonderful experience for Mandarin learning. When I face some troubles, she gives me excellent examples to solve the problems. Also, she chat about some dairy topic in the introduction, so I can concentrate on the learning. After the class, she gives me the moderate amount of homework and feedback to each lecture, that enable me to understand the content. Overall, she is adept at teaching non-mandarin student in good way, so I recommend the student to learn Chinese by teacher Gemini.

What would you improve about this program?
If I have some chances to meet other learners, that is better.
