My teacher Shiyao at Linda Mandarin is a wonderful teacher. Being an older student and only having learnt Latin-based languages in the past, I’ve found learning Mandarin language to be quite challenging. However, Shiyao motivates me every week when I attend class. She is patient and very kind, takes the time to explain words when needed and is very good at handling lots of questions. Our Mandarin class is very interactive and we not only learn Mandarin language, we also gain Chinese cultural insights and understanding, which I love. ~ Julianne Browne

I think that Lilian is a great teacher! I’m sure that the 3 of us all enjoyed the Chinese lessons!!! ~ Tom Ruiter

I’m writing this note to express my appreciation to the class with Xie laoshi. I have been enrolled into advanced level 2 class about one year ago. I really enjoy the class with Ms. Xie. The best part of the class is flexibility. As an expatriate working in Singapore, I travel a lot. I need the Mandarin classes in private and flexible. My teacher does great effort to adjust schedule to meet mine. I also like the textbook materials which is very suitable to my interest. ~ Mitch Kawaguchi 河口光康

Chinese Beginner 2 Group Class

I like the Mandarin class material (book and instructor-led lessons) and the Mandarin videos. I am travelling a lot and watching these videos on the plane or at the hotel helped me review and practice (an excellent complement to the lessons); I really appreciated Yingming as a teacher; She adapts the pace of each Chinese lessons to the knowledge of the student (I was starting from “0” and she made me progress rapidly);Yingming is professional with very good pronunciation (I think it is a very good skill and she helped me understood well the 4 tones – an important base to be understood in mandarin); Also, she adapts to the context of the student. We were following the book but she was very helpful in providing me with additional Chinese words and sentences depending on my business and questions during the lessons. ~ Francis St-Louis

We have just finished our beginner level 1 intensive Chinese course with Linda Mandarin. We learnt the Chinese language fast to be able to communicate in Mandarin day to day and to get to know new every day. This made our learning very enjoyable. Before starting this course, we had no Mandarin experience but just a few phrases such as Nihao. With such a Mandarin course in good pace, it helps me to grasp basic words and structure in a short period of time, which I believe will benefit my study and work in Singapore in the near future.

It’s very important to me that Linda Mandarin helps to plan the schedules according to my business travelling plans.

Conversational Chinese Courses, Group Class

Sylvia was a great teacher, I have learned a huge amount that I incorporate to conversations every day. In our class, most of us attended the two-hour session after a long day at work, but still Sylvia managed to keep the energy within the room up, but also our attention. She adapted the Mandarin courses to our large amount of questions as well, often helping us to understand how to structure the sentence in a more pleasing manner. I am very thankful she was our teacher and my decision to choose Linda Mandarin, and would wholeheartedly recommend Linda Mandarin to any individual wishing to learn Mandarin. ~ Gavin Ong

As an executive with the oil and gas industry it is important to connect with new markets and new customers. Learning to speak Chinese to ensure better relations with my Chinese clients was very important. Learning the Mandarin language is not easy but your excellent Chinese teacher Nini has given me new skills that will bring great benefit to our business. I am very grateful for her knowledge, ability to communicate, patience, understanding and warm persona that ensure this Mandarin learning process is an enjoyable challenge that can be overcome to great success. ~ Ross Campbell

I really enjoyed every single class of the beginner intensive mandarin course. It was very effective to take class and get an exposure to the Chinese language everyday especially as a beginner. The mandarin course was well-structured and the teacher, Lucy, was very friendly and motivating. She not only taught us the materials in the book but also catered to our own needs by teaching us mandarin vocabularies related to our jobs and everyday situations we would encounter. Even though the Chinese course is finished, I am going to keep learning Mandarin Singapore with a private class at Linda Mandarin. ~ Rachel Heo

The Chinese lesson was really useful and I enjoyed learning Mandarin very much. My Chinese teacher not only followed the text, but she also taught me a lot of related Chinese words or phrases that was not on the text. So that I could increase my vocabulary.

Nin hao! I started to look online for Chinese Beginners lessons and found Linda Mandarin. The webpage was informative and easy to operate. I checked for options and received an immediate response. Due to my working schedule I have to be flexible which is why I decided for one-to-one Chinese tuition which Linda Mandarin offered. My Chinese teacher Joni is very good and professional and I like her Mandarin teaching method a lot. It is always fun to go to the Chinese lessons! I have just finished Book 1 and signed up for more private Mandarin lessons for Book 2! ~ Petra Schulberatung

I have recently completed the level 1 Chinese course with Linda Mandarin, and my grasp of the mandarin language has improved tremendously. One of the best things about this Chinese course has been the variety of teaching methods employed by my teacher Selina. The mandarin lessons are always interesting, and the pace of progression is challenging, but achievable. I have now commenced level 2, and am finding it equally rewarding. I would highly recommend Linda Mandarin to anyway out there who is genuinely interested in learning the Chinese language. ~ James Yeomans

Linda Mandarin provided me with the perfect environment to build on my very basic knowledge of this beautiful Mandarin language. From my very first free Chinese trial lesson, I could see that Linda was extremely professional and that she would expect high standards from her team and the student participants. The Chinese Beginner Level 1 daily class was fast paced and enjoyable. My Mandarin teacher Lillian ensured that each member of our small group was adequately challenged and engaged in each lesson. I would recommend this Chinese course for anyone looking to pick up a new language.~ Ken McGeough
