Mandarin House Language Center in Shanghai reviews


I went to school Mandarin House in Shanghai on business matters: I work with an international company, and recently we started to establish partnership with Asian countries. Chinese language was needed, and in a short time, so I turned to Smapse with a request to pick up a language school for me. My colleague sent his daughter to study in England with this company and highly recommended it. I can immediately say that the recommendation worked for a bang and I never regretted that I started working with Smapse.

The consultant assured that the flow of students to Asia and China has grown a lot, so the company has made good relations with best language schools in that region. Yes, an important point is that Smapse works exactly as partners, and not as intermediaries: in particular, this affects the absence of admission commission. 

What can I say? It's a difficult thing - Chinese. But I can appreciate the school of Mandarin House very highly: all the audiences are brand new, with needles, modern computers, projectors and other equipment. There are online courses and support, electronic studying materials - very convenient, you can repeat the material everywhere.

Teachers are excellent: they have good experience working with European students, so they already know what are the main difficulties. The most difficult, of course - written Chinese and speech: a very special pronunciation. Therefore, we had a huge number of seminars and oral discussions - in the evening I was really tired of talking! But the results are there - I started from the most basic level, and in a month I will go to a more complex and intensive program. I really liked studying in Shanghai: if the language goes well, I do not mind staying here and working with Chinese business representatives.
