They had many different time options to choose from and their staff was very friendly

Mr. Raymond Chan from U.S.A.

Cantonese Beginners Day Time class (25/11- 23/12, 2010)

1, Why did you choose Hong Kong Language School?

–I chose Hong Kong Language School because they were very flexible.? They had many different time options to choose from and their staff was very friendly.? Also, the facility looked very presentable and the location is quite close to the MTR.

2, How’s the school environment?

–The school’s environment is quite good. There is always a friendly and helpful atmosphere. The school itself feels very “open” and you never feel trapped or cluttered.

3, How’s the class atmosphere?

–The classrooms are comfortable and clean.? Students are encouraged to ask questions and the teachers always make sure that the students are able to comprehend the material.? You never feel rushed to learn the material.? If there is something is confusing or hard to learn, the teacher slows down and tries to help the students first.

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

–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.?? She was not one of those teachers that only follows the book like a robot.? If there are other things that she feels a student should know, she deviates from the book and teaches her students very useful words/phrases/ sentences.? Also if a student wanted to learn about subjects that were not covered in the course, she would also take time to teach/ explain them.

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

–Of course!? Before choosing Hong Kong Language School, I had called/ visited many other schools around Hong Kong.? Hong Kong Language School was the most flexible.? They always try to work the time schedule around the student, making it convenient.? Besides convenience, the staff is always friendly and welcoming.? Lastly, Hong Kong Language School’s price is quite reasonable compared to others.

–Yes, I would recommend Hong Kong Language School to my friends.? Due to its convenient location, it is easy to get to.? The staff is very friendly and you are never looked down upon.? The material is designed to make learning Chinese easier and due to their flexibility, you can always learn at your own pace.

I’d say it was “learning with a smile

Ms Jennifer Hennings from U.S.A.

Cantonese Beginners Day Time class (24/11- 21/12, 2010)

1, Why did you choose Hong Kong Language School?

— I chose HKLS because it had so many positive student reviews on its website, and because it was offering Cantonese classes at a time that worked well for me. I also thought the price was reasonable compared to other programs I’d seen.

2, How’s the school environment?

— HKLS is a friendly place. I like the way that students can have tea and snacks together and chat during the break. It makes it much more social.

3, How’s the class atmosphere?

— The class atmosphere is friendly without being overly lax. I’d say it was “learning with a smile.”

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

— Vectra is a thoughtful and encouraging teacher. He did a good job of identifying and focusing on words and phrases that were most challenging for me. He also used a good variety of exercises to help me practice. I really feel like I’ve learned a lot in my four weeks of lessons. The class was quite effective.

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

— If my schedule allows, I will definitely come back for more lessons, since I like the pace, structure, and price of the HKLS classes.

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

— Yes, I’ve already recommended HKLS to several people, and I’ll continue to do so. I think the classes are a great value for the money, and the teachers are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.

The class environment was extremely fun

Mariyah Hoosenally from Singapore

Cantonese Beginners Level 1 Day Time class (8/8 – 19/8, 2011)

Neih hou! The two weeks I spent in the Hong Kong Language School were weeks I would never forget. I chose the Hong Kong Language School amongst the few others in Hong Kong because it stood out to me. The class timings were reasonable, the location was perfect and the course outline was just right. I felt that the school was just right for me the moment I walked in and was welcomed by the friendly staff. I was introduced to my fellow classmates and teachers shortly after and knew that this was right for me.

The class environment was extremely fun! I am now confident walking down the streets of Hong Kong. I would to take more classes to expand my Cantonese and talk to the locals. I recommend the HK Language School to anyone who wants to learn the languages of Hong Kong!

My teacher was simply great

Mr. Alex Howard from Britain, Swiss

Mandarin Private Tuition (28/9- 29/10, 2010)

1, Why did you choose Hong Kong Language School?

— Because it was very convenient. Close to my house and very central relative to Wanchai. It came across as professional to me and the prices were very fair. Upon the visit I felt very welcome and at ease. At that point I had already made up my mind.
2, How’s the school environment?

— Actually quite family like. After a month’s time I felt really familiar with the place and everyone. It really had a cosy feel. Saying goodbye to my teacher at the end was rather difficult, a relationship had been building up with the school and the place.
3, How’s the class atmosphere?

— I only took private lessons with Helen, so it was of course very personalized. It was more of a dialogue than a class. It was very casual but yet very effective and hard-working. From my point of view it really was ideal, especially to learn to express myself.
4, How’s your teacher? Was your class effective? Did you learn what you had expected?

— My teacher was simply great. She taught me everything from Chinese history, to everyday culture, vocabulary, characters and grammar. She was my first real insight into China I must say. Within 5 weeks time I learned all the basics of the Chinese language. As I now moved to Shanghai I could easily get around, communicate and even explain what kind of phone deal I wanted to my mobile company!
5, Will you come back & take more lessons? Why?

— Of course! If I ever was to move back to Hong Kong from Shanghai (where I know live), I’d probably take a weekly 2-hour course just to maintain my characters and vocabulary.
6, Will you recommend Hong Kong Language School to your friends? Why?

— Of course! I indeed already have. In my own opinion HKLS is the best deal you can find in Hong Kong. Their strongest point is their outstanding flexibility.

So don’t be shy, go knock at their door.
