Selina who is the founder of Mandarin Plus is an excellent teacher. The lessons are adapted for my needs. She is patient, professional and fun. I highly recommend her to anyone! Feel free to get in touch with any questions.
One of the very few, if not the only school, where student’s progress placed first. Not only the course can be tailored to student’s needs, but the schedule. I think, the teacher’s approach and attitude to teaching makes the whole difference.
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.
I have been taking private lessons with Selina and her teachers for more than 2 years now and it has been exceptional. I am speaking from experience having been a student at other ‘larger’ mandarin schools in Singapore and I can honesty say that the dedication that the team here to their students is unconditional. Every teacher is highly qualified (not just part-time student teachers who need the pay check): the teachers genuinely have an interest in your learning and celebrate your progress with you. It is not just about what’s in the book but also Chinese culture, the difference between spoken Chinese and written Chinese and all the nuances that you would not get in a typical class.
I originally only wanted to learn a bit of Mandarin to be able to communicate the basics with others. I started with HSK 1 and I am now learning HSK 5. I have completed 2 exams which I certainly did not feel that I could so at the beginning of this journey. It was only with the encouragement of Selina and her teachers that I am able to do this. I have been recommending Mandarin Plus to all my friends and colleagues. 我需要努力，但我很感激他們的鼓勵。謝謝！
I have been learning Chinese with Selina Xie for almost 5 years now. She has set up her own school Mandarin Plus . I truly appreciate her professionalism, patience, ability to tailor teaching approach to varying learning styles. Over the years I have enjoyed traditional textbook work, role-plays, learning tongue-twisters, story writing, reciting and dictation, reading additional materials including newspaper and Internet articles that complemented my learning path at Mandarin Plus. I successfully passed HSK3 exam and am currently completing the third level of Business Chinese (BCT3). Selina is an extremely experienced teacher with admirable personal background, which one realises only having spent several years as her student and having tried other schools and other ways of learning. I encourage all students to keep going (we know how hard it gets at times, right?) and not to be afraid to ask questions or share their opinions with the teacher. Only by doing so can we all achieve our learning goals and actually enjoy the process too .
As a native English speaker taking up Mandarin can feel overwhelming . Selina laoshi who is also the founder of Mandarin Plus and Lilian Wang the teacher of Mandarin Plus have provided me with much needed direction, confidence and expertise to reach a level of progress I ‘m delighted with. After just one year I’ve already taken my level 3 exam, and I’m reaping the benefits in my day to day usage. Fantastic Chinese lessons at a reasonable price !
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.
Neither Rudrash’s mother tongue is Mandarin, nor we speak Mandarin at home, still teacher Selina Xie （founder of Mandarin Plus) brings up enough interest and encouragement in our son, that he always looks forward for her class. Thank you Selina laoshi , thank you Mandarin Plus.
