Excellent 1-on-1 Chinese training

This company really offers great 1 on 1 Chinese training. I was with them for a short 4 months course where I was going from HSK 3 to HSK 4 and it helped me significantly with getting pass that barrier. I now can confidently speak Chinese and only occassionally need the dictionary. They really do well on encouraging you to talk freely and improve your grammar vocabulary enough to do so. Anyone going to Shanghai, I highly recommend their 1-on-1 course for 15 or more hours per week as you would be able to get the most value out of your course this way.

My Teacher is nice and jolly, usually I feel bored learning but thanks to him learning was enjoyable.
He also good at handling a slow learner person like me.
Also the best part is the class schedule is flexible and depends on your availability. They also support students individual capability to pay - for me they arranged flexible payments that I can afford monthly. Thanks SN Mandarin. They have high excellent standards in teaching.

Good experience

Very good people, they offer all the help you need! Teachers are so friendly. I think this is one of the best option if you want to study Chinese language in Shanghai. The school is so comfortable, the place is in the city center, so it is easy to arrive by metro or bus. The people who work there are always ready to solve any problem or to help you when you need it - they make the program incredible, relaxed and easy. Also, Shanghai is a very good city for foreigner because so many people can speak English!!!! This is such a fun place to discover China too!

Learning a new language is very exciting opportunity for me.

Learning a new language is very exciting. Learning Chinese was a challenge for me. For the first two months I was struggling with my motivation, but the teacher is very helpful and very patient with me. She always gives me space to fix my mistakes and learn how to improve my vocabulary. Now I am completing my fourth month and I am looking forward to extending the course.
I highly recommend people to choose this team if they are interested in learning Chinese.
Stay focused and diligent. Chinese is hard language to learn, but once you start understanding, you will start enjoying.

My first friends in a new country.

Arriving in China was daunting. I had travelled internationally before but never to live, it was a new and strange experience.

SN Mandarin had a huge role in helping me get settled, not just with my grasp of the language, but socially as well.
I always knew the staff were nearby to help, and my language mentor was patient and had a good sense of humor.

With so many floors, waiting for the elevator can be annoying, but the location was convenient with food and travel close by. I recommend their services to foreigners travelling to Shanghai.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The school held an event where we made dumplings together. I had some experience making them before, but never in front of locals! It was a fun afternoon.
  • The course had a good pace.
  • Kind and available staff.
  • Convenient location.
  • Slow elevator

Staff Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with program leaders.

Michael Wang

Partner and Coordinator of West East Internship Bridge, nearly seven years of work experience in multi-cultural communication, four years of work experience in teaching Chinese as a foreign language, founder of online learning Mandarin, wealth of multi-cultural experience and communication skills. Michael studied at the University of Hertfordshire and Malvern House London College of ABE Business Administration course.

What position do you hold at under SN Mandarin? What has been your career path so far?

I am West East Internship (WEIB) Program Coordinator and Partner at SN Mandarin, respond in coordinating with interns and job sponsors and assisting program director. Before joining SN Mandarin to start the WEIB program, I was with an online Mandarin Teaching Organization as the founder. As a partner with a more reputable school program, I take more responsibility, from managing website design, making brochure, answering enquiries, interviewing with applicants to matching best positions from our data base.

It is much busier, but I really like it, because it is exactly my career vision, to be an international culture communication worker. It is to a great extent, because of my oversee study and work experience in London.

What does the future hold for WEIB? Any exciting new programs to share?

Talking about the future is my favorite topic. People say future is in China. I have no doubt about it. China hold the biggest population/marketing, and people work hard, same as me. In WEIB we have the best international team, led by Jon B. Anderson who has nearly 20 years of on-the-round experience in Asia, an MBA from Pepperdine University. In addition to his expansive career as an international senior business leader and consultant, and he has also taught at the University level in both Shanghai and Chicago.

Our company motto is :” WEIB - Your Reliable Global Internship Partner”. Apparently we want to be the best one in Asia.

What about the future of the industry? How do you think study abroad and international education will change over the next 10 years?

Well I think people are no doubt now it is a global world in economy. See what happened to The Russian ruble now, seriously plunge. some people don't really like it, say it is too much everything is about economic, business and money now, Poland tomato price change easily because Russian fruit embargo from EU and competition from China tomato but I think the global economic is more positive and it is the future.

Now back to our subject, I think economic globalization promote the international exchange of education. Westerners more willing to work or study in Asia, not like before just one direction (East to West). So I think study abroad and international education will still maintain upward trend and more balance.

Which study abroad destination is most underrated? Conversely, which is most overrated?

It's hard to say which destination is the best and which is not that good, as different people have different opinions. In my opinion, US and Europe still are a nice destination for eastern people to embraces international multi-culture and diversity. To some extent, China is quite like America, and full of opportunities, challenges and love. So China is also a perfect study abroad destination.
