A Great Choice!

I have been in China for over five years, and for more than five years, I have attempted to learn Mandarin. During my time in Shanghai, I have tried countless tutors to apps and other language centers. I had all but given up hope that I would find an approach that worked for me, then a friend referred me to Silk mandarin.

For me, What sets Silk apart from a sea of money-hungry Chinese language training centers is their passion. From the moment you step through the door, you will be by a wave of warmth, caring, and sincerity. Before joining Silk, I had become burnt out and demotivated from my previous experience at my last Chinese language school. So many of the other programs in Shanghai advertise high tech resources and unrealistic results; this is not the case at Silk. I also found that the course consultants at other centers only care if you make it to the class, not about your actual goals. The point that makes Silk Mandarin tower above the rest is their genuine care. My course consultant Lina has taken such good care of me from the word go. I will be the first to admit; I am not an easy customer to please. Coming from a high stakes sales background, I am never shy when it comes to pushing for what I want or deserve. With Lina, the whole process was clear, consistent, and straightforward. She went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied with every aspect of my investment.

Another point that stood out to me about Silk was their teacher and staff retention. The majority of their team has worked in the center for over two years. Having worked in management for an English training center, I can speak firsthand to the difference that retaining teachers and staff makes to the learner experience. No matter the language or the business, you can always tell the quality of the product and the culture based on their ability to maintain their staff and their customer base.

They say that a great team starts with a great leader and I couldn’t agree more! The center director Liwen is a shining example of a leader who cares deeply for her team and her students. After speaking with her in detail about my goals and ambitions, We made a personalized study plan to ensure that I reached my full potential. She also took a personal interest in me as a student to ensure that I was matched with the correct teacher to ensure a cohesive learning experience. Her work ethic shines through in her staff and study material. I could not be happier with my decision to join Silk Mandarin and am excited to see the progress I can make!

You won't regret it

If you actually want to learn Chinese, study at Silk Mandarin. It’s not the cheapest, but that is because the quality is the best you’re going to be able to find, especially if you’re a beginner. Here are my two main reasons why Silk is worth it: 1. Class Size - The group classes have a limit at 6 students, so you’re guaranteed to get tons of personal attention from your teacher and have the opportunity to speak a lot, which is what you actually need if you’re going to improve, especially at the early levels. 2. Teachers- The teachers here are the best. I had Jessica for HSK 1, Christina and Jessica for HSK 2, Jessica for HSK 3, and now David and Jessica for HSK 4. Christina is a boss. She don’t mess around and she makes grammar so easy to understand. Jessica is my savior, my fearless leader, my tug boat, pulling me along even when I have no gas left. She explains things so clearly that you don’t think you’re learning until you look back a few chapters and realize that you understand everything. Seriously, a teacher goddess. David is my newest teacher and is perfect for my HSK 4 needs and desires. His English is so goddamn good, which is really helpful mainly because he can explain the nuances between similar words that a textbook can’t (really, the textbook sucks at this). This is very useful for me at the higher level now that my vocabulary is a little bigger (ex. Think about the difference between “but, although, actually, even though, even if, etc... “). He also has a decent sense of humor.

So yea, if you want to pretend to learn Chinese, buy some textbooks and “study” at Starbucks or go to a school where you’re listening to a teacher with 15 other students in the class and you never have a chance to speak. But, if you really want to learn Chinese rapidly, try Silk Mandarin out. I started mid HSK 1 in October (I had taken a single Chinese course two years before in America), and now 5 and half months (April) later I am mid-HSK 4 and a few months away from being conversationally fluent. I am so thankful I found this school and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

我会说汉语!

Silk Mandarin is by far the best Chinese training institute in Shanghai. I recommend it to everyone with complete confidence.

I studied some Chinese in high school and with a private tutor in the US, but Christina's class helped me learn better and faster than anything else I've tried. Silk Mandarin's entire teaching staff is professional, fun and well equipped to give outstanding lessons.

I have taken both private and group lessons. In both I was appropriately challenged to speak and understand at a high level. The intensive classes can be tough, but you're given all the support and resources you'll need to succeed. I now feel confident to use Chinese at work and in daily life.

At school, everyone is friendly and encouraging. I'm always warmly greeted when I walk in for class and encouraged to show of everything I've learned. In class, we've had a lot of fun with role-plays and other activities that have helped me dramatically improve my speaking ability. The extra activities the school puts on, such as the Christmas party, make me feel like I'm a part of a supportive community of expats who all want to learn to speak Chinese.

All in all, I highly recommend Silk Mandarin to anyone who wants to learn Chinese, either for fun, for work, or for intensive study. You can surely find an incredible program to suit your needs here!

Extremely satisfied and happy

First, I want to say that Silk Mandarin is by far the best school there is to learn Chinese. I have tried many other schools and most recently I tried studying at Jiaotong University. I wasn't happy with all their teaching methods. Specifically with Jiaotong the classes were to big, and there was no feeling of connection with the teachers. My good friend Alex gave me the recommendation to try Silk Mandarin. After the first trial, I was hooked. One thing I love is their use of the flash cards. These are really creative and help me a lot with my reading and vocabulary. The most important thing though is it helps with my grammar. Jessica was my first teacher, and she helped me so much. I needed to start HSK3 intensive course, but I never studied characters before. She used these cards by making me create sentences, and it made the class fun. Again, it wasn't just learning vocabulary and characters. This helped tremendously with my grammar. Jessica is such an enthusiastic and motivated teacher. After all our sessions, I was sad to leave her class. Teaching Chinese is her passion, and you can see that every time you walk into the classroom. David and Marsha are both my teachers now for HSK3. Once I met David, I knew this intensive course was going to be so much fun. David gives off a very welcoming vibe. We joke about each other and share stories. He is also super knowledgeable about characters. He knows anything and everything about radicals and how to help remember these new characters you start to learn. Marsha has been helping me now for a few weeks with extra practice on material learned from the intensive course. She helps me review translations and answers any other questions I have that I missed. The most recent grammar structure I learned was "把“. It didn't sink in totally after the first class, so she grabbed a separate grammar book with multiple examples in English. I then translated these into Chinese, and she continued to help through step by step. Overall the teachers are all professional, patient, and outgoing. They truly care about your learning experience no matter if you are doing part time or full time. It's a family at Silk. I am real happy with my decision studying here, and I suggest to everyone to at least try it for yourself.

Choose Silk Mandarin :)

I am so lucky to have found this Chinese school! I was able to select practically whenever I wanted to have my class, and the material was very interesting and practical. My teacher was patient and knowledgeable and even introduced me to a lot of useful resources for self study. I would recommend anybody with an interest in learning more about China or Chinese culture to start today!

Great experience

Through over five months of one-on-one lessons at Silk Mandarin my experience has been excellent. Having tried a couple of other schools and teachers here in Shanghai, I’ve found Silk to be a very personal and professional team. They helped me craft a schedule and package that worked with my budget and time availability. In terms of methodology I was hesitant at first to commit to learning to read characters, but based on their recommendation I decided to give it a try. As predicted it was an important factor in enabling a solid breakthrough in terms of my quickly learning new vocabulary and more completely understanding the nuances of the language. My teacher Jasmine was able to help me quickly progress through HSK level 3 and has enabled a new level of confidence in my speaking and understanding. I would highly recommend the school to anyone looking to make a studious effort to learning Mandarin.

My experience at Silk Mandarin

One of the friendliest atmospheres of any language school that I've attended. Teachers and staff are personable and welcoming and offer a great environment to hang out and casually practice Chinese outside of class.

I've been taking 1 on 1 classes for a few months now and my experience has been nothing short of excellent. My teacher, Yanqin, has not only been a great instructer but also has a fun (and patient!) personality. Under her tutelage my Chinese has improved considerably and most importantly my understanding of China and its unique cultural heritage has been deeply enriched.

For anyone with a busy work schedule considering taking Chinese classes, Silk Mandarin couldn't be a better choice. Flexibility of teachers and staff and homey environment make Silk Mandarin a fun and engaging place to learn and improve your Chinese

Silk Mandarin helps you put the pieces together

I started studying Chinese at Silk Mandarin after two of my friends with excellent Chinese highly recommended them. I had already lived in China for 2 years while working full-time and studying (in a half-assed way) on the side and had taken 1 year of university Chinese. But I felt really inspired at Silk Mandarin that my studying was going to pay off, which energized me a lot. One great part was that I was able to dictate what I wanted to learn and what would be useful for my work and daily life. That in and of itself was great, but it's not the thing that sets Silk Mandarin apart from other schools I've gone to. Instead the big things these guys do is teach you the logic of the language, using a very straightforward and easy to understand method, but one that I'd never heard anything about before in university or other private schools. Once my teacher started teaching me this, so many pieces were coming together for me in terms of sentence structure and how Chinese works. I think my language was really inconsistent before and I was never sure where to put which words because I knew different rules but not a unified one. So I'd say these guys are incredibly friendly and flexible and cool, but they also really know their stuff. I'm a native English-speaking editing/writing professional who majored in lit and my Chinese teacher knows the English parts of speech better than I do-- you have to understand language to teach it and these guys have it down :)
