testimonials

Thoroughly pleased with the value I received from my time learning at Mandarin Plus. Apart from the regular curriculum, my teacher was also very willing and able to guide me in tailoring a specific pitch that I had to prepare for a business presentation which boosted my confidence tremendously. Even my colleagues were surprised by the marked improvement of my Mandarin level. Overall, very happy with Mandarin Plus.

I finished one course of 2-people group lessons and signed up for more. Even with circuit breaker, we still do weekly Zoom tuition and the quality of the class is just as high.

Laoshi is great in that she tailors each lesson to our levels and picks vocabulary she thinks is most useful for us instead of just relying on the textbook. We have short oral presentations every week and she also provides us with extra language videos or links to supplement our learning.

I have been learning at Mandarin Plus for 5 months at classroom tuitions and online tuitions. Both are conducted by Ms.Selina effectively especially for oral practice. She is very patient and kind as well as professional. I really enjoy learning Chinese now.

I started my online Mandarin classes in April2020. I found my weekly 2 hour HSK 1 zoom classes very effective. There were 3 students and our teacher Ms. Wang Cheng created a learning atmosphere that engaged and challenged us. It motivated me to learn to write the Chinese characters as well.
The CB period pushed us to zoom classes and I have really enjoyed them. The big plus is I can do them from the comfort of my home and do not have to waste time travelling back and forth to class.

Very satisfied with my learning experience. Staff are very responsive and transparent with rates and terms. Private class teaching method was very flexible. Our professor taught extra vocabulary so that we could immediately apply it to the workplace and business context. School is easily accessible cos of CBD location. Greatly recommend for foreigners who want to learn and improve Chinese.

Selina was recommended to me by one of my friend whose son had been enjoying taking lessons with her for a few years and was very satisfied with the level he had achieved. My children are French and respectively 16 and 13 year-old. They have been learning Chinese in school as a 2nd language and needed extra-teaching hours to improve their speaking and writing skills.
My son used to say that he hated Chinese language and was really unhappy to have to learn it. However, since he has started with Selina, slightly more than a year ago, his level has not only improved substantially but now also finds Chinese interesting and do not complain anymore before going to class.
His school Chinese teacher was impressed by his progression and participation in class.
I really recommend Selina; She is an excellent Chinese tutor.

I enjoyed 16 hours of one-to-one Mandarin classes which were tailored to my level of Mandarin (rusty, primary school level) and interests. The teacher was patient, good at listening and explaining, and responded to my interest in polishing my Mandarin whilst introducing a new level of technical and modern vernacular which I sorely lacked. By using various techniques, e.g. reading conversations, increasing relevant vocab in bitesized batches, looking at current news videos or documentaries, reading news items and blogs by the younger set, I was enthusiastically reintroduced to the modern world of Mandarin. We even looked at current websites. Much of my practice material was very relevant to the current affairs. Everything we worked on was recorded and shared with me via Google Docs. Excellent.

I have taken private Mandarin lessons from Lilian, who is a perfect teacher with well-prepared curriculum. Best place for beginners.

MandarinPlus has given me the confidence to communicate in Mandarin to my colleagues, patients at work, and with my friends. The lessons are well structured and they have flexible timings you can adjust to, depending on your schedule. The teachers are very dedicated to giving you the most out of the 1 hour or 1.5 h lessons and will make sure you understand everything before carrying on to the next lesson.

My teacher, Lilian W, is very credible, patient and willing to go the extra mile making sure my pronunciation etc. is perfect. The one-to-one classes are worth the money as they provide quality content. Certification is also given once you have completed any of the levels.

Selina has been of immense help to our family. We do not speak any Mandarin at home, yet our children, who are born in Singapore, have been studying Chinese since a young age and needed support in their learning. Selina’s professionalism, defication and immense patience have really made a difference. She is extremely good at adapting her teaching style to the children’s personality and at finding ways to make her lessons interesting and productive, without ever compromising on quality.

 

I worked with Selina for a period of two weeks in preparation for my undergraduate Chinese final. She was extremely helpful in ensuring my correct pronunciation and developing my conversational skills. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs to improve fast in a short period of time.
