Great class for learning Mandarin. The lessons are well-structured and go at a good pace. The resources provided to continue learning out of class hours are very helpful. Our teacher (Anne) is a very patient teacher as well as cheery and fun and made learning in the classes a very pleasant experience.
A great place to learn mandarin in London! I was a little apprehensive to learn a new language as I’m not someone who finds learning languages easy – particularly one with four tones! Practical Mandarin provides a friendly and professional programme that is structured to ensure step-by-step progression with continued support throughout. The class occupancy is small which allows for a more personal delivery of each session and the opportunity to clarify / strengthen areas of difficulty or concern. Annie – who teaches the entry beginner class – is brilliant and her style of teaching makes the classes fun and interactive – thank you! I have completed my first term with Practical Mandarin this year and look forward to commence the next course in 2017.
Great Mandarin classes! Small groups (we are 4 in my class) and awesome tutor! Anne is a fantastic teacher, she turns everything into something easy and fun to assimilate. I have made huge progress in just a few weeks 🙂
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
Ginny makes you at ease and I like that she also pushes you out of your comfort zone; very useful tools such as books, apps and material that enables me to understand one of the most difficult aspects, the writings.
Even after the course she was able to help me there and then.
I recommend Ginny highly!
