A natural learning experience

I have been in China for 8 years and have studied Chinese on and off with private tutors, group classes, Chinese friends and at another local Shanghai language school. By far, Silk Mandarin is the best place I have learned Chinese. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Other schools talked to me in a way that made me feel uncomfortable and not confident. My teacher, Hannah, teaches in a way that works for my visual learning style and my schedule. She explains things in ways that are easy to remember rather a list of words and rules to memorize. I enjoy coming to class. I’m learning faster than I have in the past but the pace feels very comfortable and natural. I recommend getting the flash cards. I quickly stepped up my level of learning when I got them. If you are serious about finally taking the time to learn Chinese, Silk Mandarin is the right place.

Best in Shanghai

The best way for me to recommend Silk Mandarin is to say that there are 2 Mandarin schools within a 15 minute walk from my home (1 is just across the street), but I chose Silk Mandarin, which, door to door, takes me an hour to reach. That’s 2 hours of commuting, 5 days a week, for a 3 hour class. And it’s worth every minute of the commute, even in the middle of a hot Shanghai summer. I had researched and talked with representatives of several Mandarin schools and chose Silk Mandarin because it was clearly the best. The teachers are exceptional, and 6 weeks into intensive courses I am amazed at how much I can speak, read, and write. The courses move quickly, but the teachers are accommodating, patient, and supportive, and I can’t say enough good things about them. I don’t think I’ve ever bumped into a teacher or other staff member in the school who did not stop to talk with me (they all even know my name, which speaks to the professional collaboration and caring nature of the school). After living in China for 7 years and never studying the language, Silk Mandarin has helped open my adopted home to me in a whole new way. Mandarin schools are a dime a dozen in Shanghai, and choosing 1 is overwhelming, but I have already been recommending Silk Mandarin to friends and colleagues, and I will continue to do so.

Definitely Recommend

I'm a student at the Suzhou school doing private classes. I'm very impressed with how my teacher is able to adapt to my specific situation (I don't fit into any HSK level due to how I studied before, so I need a more specialized approach). I've only been at the school for a little bit, but I'm already much more confident using Mandarin which has helped me a lot at work and just in general life. There are also fun activities as well. If you want to learn to speak Mandarin, Silk Mandarin is a good choice.

Very effective

I signed up with Silk Mandarin to both catch up on HSK2 and then begin HSK3 after having a rocky start with a different tutor. The materials (flashcards and talking pen, apps, etc.) are fun to use and effective. I really appreciate how flexible my tutor is with accommodating my schedule. The extra activities that they offer are fun - we recently got together for hot pot and karaoke for example which was a fun way to meet new people.

Wished I started working with Silk Mandarin Earlier

Yep that is right. I wish I had started working with Silk Mandarin sooner than later. Initially, I was taking Chinese lessons with other institutions and honestly after every lesson I would feel discouraged and unsettled. As an engineer, I am use to learning with structure and proper format. My goal when living in China was to learn Chinese. I was told by my parents that the best souvenir you could ever get from a country is learning the language. Everything else is materialistic. This is why I am so happy I found Silk Mandarin. All thanks to my friend Elke who introduced me to the school. I was at first skeptical giving Silk Mandarin a try as it was my 5th attempt in looking for a proper Chinese school. However, after the first consultation, I quickly learned that I had been learning Mandarin incorrectly the entire time. My husband and I immediately signed up for one on one tutoring. I love their learning materials and tools. Especially the talking cards and their online tutoring platform. My tutor Shirley was and still is fantastic. She was patient with me and really helped me unlearn the bad habits and develop the proper structure to learn and fall in love with Mandarin all over again. It makes sense and its really not hard if you have the proper teaching. Fast forward today, I can now speak survivor Chinese and passed HSK 1 and 2. Now that I no longer live in China I do have the option of continuing taking lessons because they teach online world wide. Yess!!! I am forever grateful to my friend Elke, my Silk Mandarin teacher Shirley and the Silk Mandarin team for giving me the confidence to not give up on learning this live long souvenir. I wish I had found them sooner. If you are interested in learning Chinese and are looking for a proper Mandarin school look no further. It's Silk Mandarin!!!

I heard about Silk Mandarin from a Vegans of Shanghai food workshop at Silk Mandarin. I really appreciated how they broke down the meaning behind each character and radical in a way that made sense to me as a foreigner.

I took a crash course for basic Chinese in L.A. right before coming to China. I had basically no fluency in Chinese.

My Chinese class at Silk Mandarin is definitely my highlight of the week. Taking Geminii’s class with my classmate Jade is so enjoyable and fun. I end up laughing to the point of tears at times.

Geminii explains everything in a way that makes sense to my foreigner way of thinking. She gives the background of the Chinese way of thinking and why things are said the way they are in Chinese. It makes everything so much more digestible for me. I need to understand the logic of a culture in order to truly understand the language, and Geminii strives to fulfill that every lesson.

Geminii caters the class to make it involve different methods and activities for learning so that it never get monotonous or dull.

Wherever we are at as a class, she will make sure that we can all participate and understand in some way that is appropriate for our learning style. It has truly been a joy to learn Chinese from Geminii at Silk Mandarin.

Best place to study Mandarin in Shanghai!

I’ve been studying at Silk Mandarin for about 8 months now. When I first came to Shanghai I new that I wanted to continue studying Mandarin. I had started learning some in college and wanted to continue studying the language while in China. For my first few months in China I worked with private tutors but never felt I was getting what I needed out of the classes. Silk Mandarin has improved my Chinese language learning in such a positive way! I feel that through studying at Silk their method helps me to focus on reviewing things I already know and working to continue building on that foundation which has helped me actually advance at a constant pace and retain the new things I learn! I’ve been very happy with the teachers, students, and facilities at Silk and they have been very flexible and easy to work with when I encounter scheduling issues- always making it possible to find a class that fits my needs. I’m getting close to finishing HSK4 and I don’t know I would’ve done it without the help of Silk Mandarin!

The Real Deal!

I’d tried for years to learn Chinese, but is wasn’t until I found Silk Mandarin that I am finding success. Silvia quickly responded to my inquiry and helped me to understand the methodologies used and many options available to me. She listened to my personal experiences, helping me to create goals that Amelie Laoshi eagerly tackles. As a veteran educator, I clearly understand learning styles and modalities. I feel fortunate for the HSK Standard textbooks, visuals, auditory resources and technology available to me in pursuit of my goals. I’m especially grateful for Amelie’s patience and humor, which motivate and inspire me to continue to learn and grow in my acquisition of the Chinese language. I would highly recommend this program, regardless of age or level.

Refreshing approach and environment for learning Chinese

I studied Chinese on and off over the span of nearly 10 years in both University and private tutoring environments, but I never was able to fully connect with traditional course tracks and teachers. Frustrated with my language level and growth after having lived in China for years, I was referred a few months ago to Silk Mandarin by a friend and have found this to be a truly unique school from day one.

My teacher Jasmine developed an approach and schedule tailored to what I need, even going beyond the HSK curriculum to include custom valuable segments relevant to my career needs. I have learned faster than I expected, and more importantly I am perpetually more and more motivated by the progress and results.

I had always written off learning characters as I thought they were too daunting to learn comprehensively given my busy schedule, and instead prioritized conversational skills and pinyin. Silk Mandarin, however, has a way of teaching characters that makes it feel easy and logical, and it has completely changed how quickly I can learn comprehend and retain information.

The school is in a great central location too, comfortable, and after moving to the new classrooms on the 16th floor the environment got even better. Positive vibes, I highly recommend.
