I studied for approximately 5 months with Mandarin Plus, on a customised Business Mandarin course focusing on the Maritime and shipping sectors. My teacher Selina prepared news articles and worksheets for me every week, and was tireless in searching for relevant maritime-specific vocabulary. She also supported me in my learning by vetting short articles and social media posts that I wrote. One-to-one lessons can be intense, but Teacher Selina was always cheerful and made lessons fun. Definitely recommend for quality language lessons with a native speaker at an affordable price.

Started Online Class Level 2 around 3 months ago with Wang Cheng Lao Shi. I really enjoyed our lessons. Good materials and teacher motivated and pushed us to learn harder (teacher omitted a lot of Pinyin, so we could memorised Chinese Characters faster). Well done, Mandarin plus and Wang Lao Shi. Never stop learning. Thank you!

I came to this tuition center in preparation for IB exams that were happening in two weeks time, I was scared and nervous, but through the guidance of my teacher Ms Wang Cheng I was able to get the score I needed to get by diploma. I am forever grateful

I took in-person 1-on-1 Mandarin classes for HSK and business Chinese. The classes were engaging and I learned a lot in the past few months. 老师 went out of her way to share learning resources (e.g. videos, audio), answered my questions very clearly, and shared about Chinese culture/history too. I really enjoyed my lessons and would recommend Mandarin Plus!
