I enjoyed the opportunity to practice speaking with a native teacher. The lessons were custom-tailored for me and their content was suitable for the beginner level at which I operate at the moment: the lessons covered introductions, daily routine, hobbies and interests. The teacher was very attentive to my pronunciation and insisted on repetition until I improved which was very valuable.
MandarinX’s business Chinese courses really helped me as I prepared to expand my professional network and opportunities in China. I have so much more confidence now in speaking Mandarin in business meetings and this has developed a newfound trust between me and my international partners. I recommend MandarinX 100% for anyone looking to increase their Mandarin skills!
My tutor was was excellent in listening and tailoring the lessons to suit my particular needs. She is friendly, conscientious and extremely fun to learn from. Highly recommended. Thanks!
