“I have taken lessons with That’s Mandarin for 5 years and have found the teachers of consistent high quality though the years. Both the F2F in the Beijing office as well the online courses have helped me to reach an HSK4/5 level in this time. The combination of reading, watching videos and listening classes allow you to pick up various elements of the language really quick. For those that want to learn quickly I recommend to take 121 classes in a very dense period in the beginning (i.e. 10-20 hrs per weekend) and later on reduce to a few hours per week. Highly recommended! Dirk van der Mast”

Mandarine makes me give a chance to go job doing well in China.
Mandarine对我在中国的工作非常有帮助!
I came to China with a level which is like a newborn baby. Three months ago, I couldn’t order food and even ask to get plastic bag at supermarket. And now Yes I don’t worry about that little things.
The most I love this class is they not teach HSK boring preparing test but practice real survive situation.
After I took one week class I could understand Parcel delivery man’s saying and taxi deriver saying too.
Second, Teacher and assistant always ready to hear your feedback.
I don’t think they just want to make money, they do love teach and help to improve chinese.
I satisfied with this class and recommend you guys firmly.

I've been attending That's Mandarin on and off for 5 years now. They are a well managed school with a great central location in Beijing. Small class sizes, great teachers and free coffee make it a great way to keep improving your Chinese during a stay in China. The support staff work hard to help out with the visa process as well.

I found the support staff and the teachers very professional, dedicated and going above and beyond in assisting the students. The classes were small, fun and very helpful.

Living in Beijing I was very happy to have discoverd "That's Mandarin".
Not only their teachers are very professionnel, they are also very happy in sharing their Chinese culture and knowledge. So not only you learn the language but you also discover their way of life, their culture. All this made it unforgettable.
They also uses the newest technology, when you study with them, you can download an APP on your smartphone on which you can review and prepare your next classes.
But most importantly, I really want to thank my teachers because they make me progress very quick and thanks to them I have a good level of reading, writing and speaking Chinese.
I recommend That's Mandaring to everybody who is looking for a good school to study Chinese.

My daughter and I have been learning at That's Mandarin Beijing for almost half a year, and we feel very much satisfied with the school.

Teachers are all very professional; they're not only patient enough to let us talk as much as we want to, but also careful enough to point out grammatical and/or pronunciation errors as soon as they find ones in our Chinese.

The school provide us with a high tech teaching material both online and on a smart phone application, which is so convenient that we are able to review lessons anywhere anytime. Easy access to the class material as such is really helpful especially for those who are not full-time students like me.

I also appreciate the kind assistance of administration staffs. They're always taking care of us and give us a prompt reply when we ask them to reschedule our appointment.

I'd like to thank them all and I hope our Chinese would be better soon with the great help of That's Mandarin!

我和我女儿会不断地坚持下去!

If you’re a beginner or if you’ve already started learning chinese, this program will only help. The teachers are very performant and thanks to them my experience with them was very productive!
The classes have break in between so you can easily stay concentrated the whole day. I didn’t quite like the food, but the other people seemed to appreciate it. In any case, there is a lot of delicious food shop in the area so it isn’t a problem, you can just go buy food outside.
So yes, the location was also very good !

Going to That's Mandarin Summer Camp was a decision I will not regret. It was my first experience abroad without my family, and the first time I went to an summer camp. Despite the fact that there were not too many students, it really was an amazing experience, I really liked everything here. The teachers were very nice, and the program very chill. For instance if we could chose whether or not to go out for food, or to order, we could ask to go to certain places and it would be taken to consideration... But that did not mean that we only rested without learning. The lessons were very intense and we learned a lot in each on of them. Not only did it improve my vocabulary, but the dialogues we had with the teachers and the other students helped me a lot with the sentence structures, the pronunciation of words... I really liked how there was a balance between learning the actual language and learning about the culture and visiting places. This year I had chosen to participate to the program in which we had excursions ( museums, Forbidden city...) or cultural activities (such as painting masks, writing poems, making dumplings...) every morning, then 3 lessons in the afternoon, instead of the one in which we have 6 lessons a day and only participate to the excursions on the weekends. I strongly recommend this one if it is your first time to China because it allows you to discover a little bit more the city of Beijing. In other words, if you are thinking about coming here, don't hesitate I believe you won't regret it.

In my opinion, That's Mandarin Summer Camp is a very effective and fun way to learn Mandarin not only because the environnment encourages you to speak and understand Mandarin, but because of the intensive yet fun classes. Personally, I found the school housing to be very accomodating from the building itself, to the people in it. Not only does this summer camp allow you to largely improve your Mandarin skills, but it also helps you get accustomed to the Chinese culture by offering trips to famous sights around China and also taking students to do everyday things such as taking the subway and asking for things in Mandarin. This camp is also very aware and accomodating to any issues a student may have and are always here to tend to your needs. I was personally so surprised as to how much Mandarin I would learn in so little time!

I had so much fun at this summer camp. I am 16 and started studying Chinese a year and a half ago, but before coming here I wasn't really able to use grammar properly. All my lessons have helped me improve so much, in only two weeks I think that my speaking, listening and writing have improved, especially my listening as the teachers try to speak Chinese as much as they can. We went on a lot of cool trips, for example to the Great Wall and the Art District in Beijing. We also went out often for food which was always really good. Our teachers have all been really kind and supportive, and the small classes are perfect as it means you are always involved in the lessons. Living at the school was such a good choice, because I got to know my friends at teachers really well.

I really recommend this camp to anyone who is studying or thinking of studying Chinese. I was only here for two weeks, and would definitely stay for longer if could. Beijing is a really cool city, and it was great to feel so independent.
