A great way to learn Mandarin

I had Christina as a tutor for HSK1 and she was wonderful - I found the lessons to be very engaging and learnt a lot in a short amount of time. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn the basics (and beyond) during their time in China!

Outstanding teaching

I started studying at Silk Mandarin for 7 months, starting in mid-June, at the very beginning with HSK1, and am now currently studying HSK5, I have mainly studied the I-30 program, and also the I-20 program for one month.
 
My teacher Lois, has always been exceptional, carefully guiding me from the beginning of my studies, to now, carefully teaching me vocabulary for the level ahead to make each stage easier and easier. I am incredibly grateful that I have been able to keep the same teacher for all of this time as it has greatly helped speed up my progress. For HSK1, HSK2 and HSK3 level Lois made excellent use of the flash cards and Silk Mandarin talking pen to benefit me, and since starting HSK4 and HSK5 we have been able to use more videos in class, linking to our studies. I have found that my speaking has improved rapidly thanks to my teacher’s first rate techniques. I have always struggled with learning languages before, but thanks to Lois’ guidance and patience I have found learning Chinese a lot more manageable than I expected, I actually find myself a little surprised to be looking forward to each day’s 3 hours of classes. I could not have asked for a better teacher during my time studying at Silk Mandarin, and I plan to keep studying until I complete HSK6.
 
In my daily life I have found that the extra material covered by my teacher has helped me greatly, with homework tasks that have made excellent use of my opportunities to practice speaking. The whole course is well put together, but it is my teacher, Lois’ extra work and dedication that has really helped me make best use of this opportunity to learn Chinese, for which I am eternally grateful.
 
The whole school has a nice environment, from Siqin’s friendly greeting, to the whole team together. I have also been fortunate enough to have a couple of classes with Christina, who is also an outstanding teacher. Although I have not had class with Shirely or Hailey I am sure that they are also excellent. If you are looking for a friendly school, that will support you this is the perfect place.

Personalized learning with smooth teaching technique

Do not be hesitating if you are considering this school to be your study place. It has a nice approach in terms of learning style as well as personalized study plan. Even if you take regular Chinese HSK 1-6 classes, they will still be made to make sure that your everyday life or work benefits from it. The teachers are nice and friendly all over the place, especially I appreciate my personal tutor Hannah for great patience and professionalism she has for me.

Excellent

The lessons with Christina were amazing. I really made progress. The lessons follow the hsk programs and are useful in daily life. You will learn things like how to introduce yourself, how to read time, describe your environment, how to order basic things in shops etc...I really appreciated to learn to read and write Chinese characters

Hsk3 course

I’ve been looking for an institution that not only offers a systematic curriculum but also one that has a good instructor management system. Silk Mandarin I would say, at least based on my wonderful experience with their instructor - Gemini Zhou, has a good management and monitoring system for instructors and thereby has much skilled and respectable instructors. My Chinese skill made much more in past 3 month with Silk Mandarin & Gemini than 9 month with self learning.

Wonderful school, great teachers

Silk Mandarin is a grest school with a lovely atmosphere and experienced teachers. The content of the lessons is well organised and you are able to make progress rapidly. The school also organises additional events and activities enabling you to meet other students and teachers and use your Chinese outside of the classroom. I really enjoy learning at Silk Mandarin and starting lessons at this school was the best decision I've made since moving to China. Thank you Silk Mandarin!

Chinese HSK3

It is well-tailored and comprehensive course. Teachers are well-versed in their jobs and they are always patient. The atmosphere is great and there is a lot of laughing during learning process. Sadly, students cannot access PPT presentations, but the school provides other materials. All sources provided are high-quality too. I quite recommend it to those who want to tailor their lessons to their specific needs
