She enjoyed her classes very much

David Lunsford from USA

Mandarin Beginners Level 1 & 2 Day Time class (6/10-2/11/2011)

1, Why did you choose Hong Kong Language School?

— My wife took Mandarin classes at HKLS several months ago. She enjoyed her classes very much and the facilities are located nearby my office, making morning classes convenient. Based on her experience I didn’t hesitate to enroll into a four week intensive course.

2, How’s the school environment?

— The Institute is located on a busy street corner in Wan Chai but, thankfully, street noise isn’t heard within the building. It’s only a few minutes walk to the nearest metro stop. The school is small but contains all the necessities that one needs to learn a language.

3, How’s the class atmosphere?

— My class consisted of only a handful of students. We were each from different countries, such as Panama, Japan and Switzerland. Based on differing ages and cultural backgrounds, each of us were learning Mandarin from different reference points but we got along well and had fun in class together.

4, How’s your teacher?

— All my classmates enjoyed our teacher. She was always well prepared for our lessons and kept us smiling as we all encountered challenges learning a new and difficult language.

5,Was your class effective?

— Yes – my teacher made sure that everyone was learning a significant amount of Chinese and that no-one fell too far behind at any point. My teacher was obviously well-trained and very patient.

6, Did you learn what you had expected?

— Yes – I am happy with the results of my lessons. I was taking beginner lessons and am of course still a beginner, but at least I can now recognize some words and characters whenever I hear mainland Chinese speak. I can also communicate in basic Mandarin when needed, which was my goal.

7,Will you come back & take more lessons? Why?

–I will certainly take more lessons at HKLS if my work agenda allows for it. It’s a busy time of year for me right now so I’ve paused for the moment, but I’m looking into taking intensive course again in the springtime.

8, Will you recommend Hong Kong Language School to your friends? Why?

–Yes, of course. It is easy to end up in disappointing language classes (I speak from experience). Since mine and my wife’s experience at HKLS has been satisfying, there is good reason to continue to recommend the school to our friends and colleagues. HKLS has a very good formula for success: convenient location, well-trained teachers, and fair prices.

I learned more about the culture, history and current event

It was a great experience

Mandarin Upper Intermediate to Advanced Full Day Class (5/9 – 12/10, 2011)

1, Why did you choose Hong Kong Language School?

— While looking at school’s website I have discovered that lessons schedule is very flexible. You can start class anytime you want and finish any time you want. It was a very important factor for me. The school would adapt to your preference. It is very convenient. I also appreciate the contact with the reception. I have received a full clear information and advice on classes, materials and methods.

2, How’s the school environment?

— I loved the school environment. Teachers are very friendly and open-minded. Girls at the reception desk are very helpful and nice. Even school’s space is very well designed for socializing. During breaks everyone from different class and levels can gather together and socialize.

3, How’s the class atmosphere?

— I consider myself very lucky. My class consisted of really nice people and I have made great friendships. We studied and we laughed together. It was a great experience.

4, How’s your teacher? Was your class effective? Did you learn what you had expected?

— At the beginning I didn’t understand the very well the teacher’s method. However, after a week I have discovered that the class was really effective because I could actually communicate well in Mandarin. After a month of class, not only I wasn’t afraid to speak anymore but also I have gained an adequate amount of Chinese vocabulary and fixed phrases. I had highly qualified teacher. The teaching methods and tips the teacher gave us were really useful and made studying a foreign language easier and pleasant.

5, Will you come back & take more lessons? Why?

— I am thinking of coming back. HKLS is the first thing I would spend my money on if I stay longer in Hong Kong. I believe it is both a good investment in your language skills and a fun experience with great people.

(Came Back to us and took 2 more weeks – Mandarin Advanced (27/11- 3/11, 2011)

6, Will you recommend Hong Kong Language School to your friends? Why?

— Of course I will recommend HKLS to my friends. No matter they work or study they can always find a class schedule adequate to their needs. You can meet great teachers with outstanding teaching skills and meet new friends. It’s worth be a part of the school!

4 personnes and after only me. i improve my understanding and talking, that what i was expected.

Because all students don’t improve at the same steps, some are good to understand or some are good to speak)

–My teacher, Angela, was awesome.? She was very friendly and knowledgeable.? My class was quite effective.? Due to the fact that Angela is flexible, I had learned more than I had expected.??
