Engaging classes, intuitive platform and professional teachers

I've been studying Chinese through online classes to improve my language skills, and I only have good things to say about That'smandarin. The teachers are professional and friendly and give me helpful feedback every lesson. I always feel motivated and happy whenever I have classes with my teacher.
They have access to several materials, ranging from coursebooks to their own personalized content, topics are all different, from business to culture, classes are never dull, and you can always learn new things about the culture.

Excellent teaching materials - love the videos! Super friendly teachers

I've started many times Chinese language classes, but only ThatsMandarin is able to really teach me Chinese. They don't follow the standard HSK books, but have their own materials online. Video's, texts, listening exercises, reading exercises, writing exercises. The videos are the best ones. You can chose to listen only, or add pinyin subtitles, or add English subtitles. In the texts you just click a character (or combination of characters) and get the meaning explained. Super way of learning the language.

And a big "thank you" to my teacher. The 50 minutes class are over before I notice.

(I follow online 1-on-1 class)

Happy to have discoverd Thats Mandarin

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.

Learn Chinese With Pleasure

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!

Lovely School

I went to the school as a student. It is a good school. It have people lovely people at school who can help you whenever you are in need. The class is good and fun. The school provides the excellent teaching methods, which helps me to remember the news words and new knowledge everyday. They combing with their online system. This is a great help for me to after the class, as I can access to all the class notes and learning materials. In the school, they also give me a spare classroom in the afternoon to do my homework.
I definitely recommend this school for those who are into mandarin learning. I hope you will enjoy it. It is great opportunity !!!!!!!

One-to-one lessons

I just took 5 days of 6 one-to-one lessons per day in That's Mandarin Beijing and I have to say that it was really great experience. Last year while I was in Beijing I had lessons in some other school so I can compare, and lessons in TM were 1000 times better. I appreciate very much also the App which help me to review what I have learned. After just 30 lessons I have noticed a big progress in my Chinese. I also have to mention that all members of TM staff are really lovely, Liu Song Yu and Holly especially. I highly recommend That's Mandarin to anyone who'd like to significantly improve hers/his level of Chinese in such a short time.

Effective classes with useful curriculum

I take one-to-one classes. I used to go in person but recently my company moved far away so now I take online classes with the same teacher. In the two months that i have been going, I can see a definite improvement in my Chinese level. Compared with my old school, TM has allowed me to improve my skills more effectively. The topics I have gone through so far have helped me in my daily life in China (eg. ordering take away or a taxi). TM is very organised!

Great Experience

I absolutely loved my experience in Beijing. I would personally recommend the 1-on-1 classes since the benefits you get from having a teacher that accommodates what you know and don't know is extremely beneficial (students in group programs often study Chinese in different ways and have significantly-varying strengths and weaknesses in different parts of the Chinese language). The city of Beijing itself was the safest cities I've ever been to and I have never at any point felt unsafe or uncomfortable when visiting different parts of the city by myself at night or during the day.
