I'm using feature articles, documentary transcripts and other materials that are interesting and relevant for my work (I can choose them).
This, the flexibility in (re)scheduling, and the teachers' skill at combining discussion of the material content with language learning have made the classes extremely valuable for me. The staff is extremely professional and clear, I’ve been tested at the beginning and I’ve been able to start from the right level of competence.
Secondly, the online system they have makes reviewing what you've learnt convenient and effective.I fully recommend to learn Chinese at That's Mandarin. Prior to starting this course, I was not able to speak a word of Mandarin. Most importantly for me, during my classes my teacher explains to me the formation and origins of words.This has really helped me to understand and not be so daunted by a completely new language. All of the staff here are incredibly helpful and help to answer any questions that I have.1-2-1 classes are great.This combination is extremely unique: That’s Mandaring is really the best school in Beijing to learn chinese and meet very interesting people! My teacher is really professional and she always adapt to our needs. I have attended several Chinese schools over the years, and That's Mandarin ranks right at the top.I am studying Chinese at That's Mandarin School since September and I feel that I am learning a lot. There are three points that have particularly impressed me.
