Student Introducing HongKong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge In Chinese

Our method

We believe that Chinese can be learned in an easy and fun way. But to get conversational fluency, language learners need to be self-motivated, persevere and apply effective studying methods. Our simple and clear explanations and practical guidance will hold you accountable and help you stay motivated as well as save your time and money. We encourage our students to learn basic and most popular Chinese characters (also called "Hanzi") for the convenience to live in China since Hanzi, not Pinyin, shows up everywhere in your daily life in China.

Testimonials

Zhu Laoshi was my Mandarin teacher for more than 2 years. In that time, she greatly helped me to learn and improve my skills. I began lessons with her as a beginner in Chinese and by the end of our lessons, I was able to exceedingly pass the HSK Test. I was able to improve my Chinese quickly and efficiently because Jolly personalized our lessons to my learning style, as well as focused on appropriate topics and grammar points for daily usage around Shenzhen. I would highly recommend studying Mandarin with Jolly.

Mira has been a very good teacher, she is structured and organised in her teaching, and tries to find intuitive ways to help me remember new words or characters. Mira also found a good balance between teaching to pass HSK3, and teaching for the ‘real world’. I would certainly recommend Mira to other students.
