Mandarin Beginner Level 1 & 2, Mandarin Reading & Writing Course (12/11, 2009 – 8/2, 2010)

1, Why did you choose Hong Kong Language School?

— Compared to other language schools, I found the website to be well-arranged and easy to understand. I thought the course fees were reasonable for Hong Kong and made use of the discount offer for early payment. The location of the school was also very important to me: it is very central.

2, How’s the school environment?

— The environment was very pleasant: clean (as was the rest of the building), the receptionists were very friendly, and there was always free tea, coffee, and little snacks for everyone in the entrance/leisure area. With the school being on one of the upper floors, the rooms are quite light. The outside environment, too, is very convenient, with lots of small places to have lunch at, a mall to have coffee down the road, and MTR as well as tram stops within a few minutes’ walking distance.

3, How’s the class atmosphere?

— The first course I took was for learning and practising speaking: my 4 other classmates were from places all over the world and we soon started meeting for lunch, etc. Altogether, the atmosphere was very friendly and also interesting as there was a noticable cultural exchange as well.

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

— The teacher of the first course I attended tried to respond to everone’s particular needs, and was very attentive to help with individual difficulties (pronunciation, etc.) In the second course I took, I was on my own, to learn and practise writing characters. The teacher encouraged me a lot and contributed to?my lasting enthusiasm for Mandarin. The classes were both very effective and gave me a good start into learning Mandarin (I still take lessons now back in Europe).

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

— I will recommend HKLS to anyone who wants to study Chinese in Hong Kong. For all the above reasons 😉

I learnt so much more than expected!

3, How’s the class atmosphere?

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

— I learnt so much more than expected! I couldn’t believe what they fitted into two weeks! The class material was so comprehensive, but the teacher also very flexible and any extra phrases we wanted to learn she would teach us.

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

— Definitely, once I’ve consolidated what I’ve learnt! When I’ve used it out and about it’s been great and just made me want to learn more!

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

— Definitely, I think it uses very comprehensive material as guidance but is also very flexible! It’s also a really friendly, flexible and accommodating school!

Mandarin Lower Intermediate Level 1 Daytime class (11/5- 24/5, 2011)

1, Why did you choose Hong Kong Language School?

–I found it’s flexibility, hours, prices, etc. very attractive.

2, How’s the school environment? How’s the class atmosphere?

–The environment is very nice, teachers are always willing to answer your questions and help with problems, students chat during the breaks, give each other clues about learing stategies, etc.

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

–My teacher is great, she has very good teaching skills, her explanations are always clear, she points out the most important and interesting aspects of language, which helps to concentrate and understand Chinese language better. She also gives the cultural background, which is very important when learning a language. The atmosphere of class was relaxed yet productive. I have learnt what I expected – I wanted to develop my speaking and listening skills, and I think I’ve achieved that.

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

–I would like to come back and take more lessons, taking the intensive course allows you to see the progress, which is very motivating.

–I would recommend Hong Kong Langue School to my friends because the atmosphere of the school is friendly, classes are effective – teachers are skilled, understanding and enthusiastic, courses are very flexible (which is especially important if you need to travel a lot) and prices are very competitive.)
