Studying (beginner level) at Practical Mandarin has been a great and worthwhile experience. The class pushes you while being fun, and Juliette is a fantastic teacher - she encourages each person to contribute, is attentive, spends time with individual concerns or questions, and brings a positive and motivational atmosphere to the lesson.
I look forward to each class and I'll definitely be continuing!

I've attended the beginner course at Practical Mandarin and I found it really helpful. Classes themselves are very interactive and never boring. David usage of pictures and video means you can leave English outside and immerse yourself in Chinese.
Class sizes are small and intimate and the teacher can easily spend time with each student.

I booked the entry beginner course not really knowing what to expect, but my experience with Practical Mandarin over the past couple of months has been incredibly positive.

The lessons with Juliette are engaging and fun, they cover the basics and demands of the course but the informal and freestyle approach to the classes allows a lot of flexibility and opportunity to learn more.

The small class sizes allow everyone to be involved and unlike in other situations where speaking up might be daunting the class tutor always makes an effort to get all the students engaging with the language.

Learning Mandarin with Practical Mandarin isn't a chore, but in fact something I actively look forward to as part of my week and the great support they have if you miss a lesson and willingness to work flexibly around your schedule is a huge bonus.

I would highly recommend this centre for people looking to take the first few steps into learning Mandarin
