Since childhood my mother, a teacher herself, used to encourage me in hard learning times. She said: there is no bad pupil for a good teacher. I am a testimony for this idiom. I jut got a very good result in HSK3. It is thanks to my teacher Mandy, whom I adore for many years. She is devoted, intelligent and works at least as hard as I do to help me develop my Chinese. I thank Mandy with all my heart.
Despite learning a new language as difficult as Chinese for an old folk like me is challenging, I think my company recognize I am making progress. And this just happens because I have an excellent teacher.I am very thankful of Hanbridge Mandarin having such outstanding Chinese teachers such as“郜老师”! It is because of you that I earned such a privilege from my company.In addition to these excellent Chinese lessons, thanks to Hanbridge Mandarin Chinese corner, I can now pay with “微信”. Each time I do shopping in Shenzhen, people are impressed and old “法国人” can master 微信 payment! “非常感谢” to Hanbridge and 郜老师!

I´m very glad about the whole course. My student service and my teacher, Lynn and Edith are very professional and hard workers. Edith is a patient, kind and helpful teacher; she had taught me a lot of new things I didn't know when I started with her. It has been a satisfactory experience very useful for learning and improving my Chinese. All the lessons have been very complete and now are a powerful tool for me. It has been a very pleasure to learn in Hanbridge Mandarin School. 非常感谢你们。

When I first joined Hanbridge Mandarin, I had a limited knowledge of Mandarin. I was assigned two excellent and capable teachers, Shasha Liu (刘莎莎) and Lilian Li (李艺妍), and under their tutelage completed HSK 3 within 40 lessons. Both are cheerful, professional and very approachable. They can relate to my learning requirements and apply different strategies to maximise my learning outcomes. I have just re-enrolled with Hanbridge, with Shasha Liu (刘莎莎) and Lilian Li （李艺妍） as my teachers, to continue my studies and prepare for the HSK 4 & 5 examinations.There is also an excellent student support service team, which is always ready to resolve any problems. Lynn (卢莹), in particular, is always ready to lend a hand.
Danny Lee Australia
Lilian is a very fluent English speaker, which helps me a lot to follow the lessons efficiently. I really appreciate her customer orientation and her flexibility on the lesson times. Usually I book lessons on the weekend, never had a problem regarding this. We discussed that I may join the HSK2 test in a couple a months, which is a great motivation because it was also done early in the process. So overall I can highly recommend Hanbridge as a language school and especially Ms. Lilian Li as a trainer.
Sabri Oezge France
My daughter is 14 years old now and she has Mandarin class in her local school, but I want to give online tutorial lessons to her. First, I fear that she wouldn't like extra Mandarin class, but my daughter said she like this online class and she think the teaching method is very interesting, she thinks it can help her to learn Mandarin in her local school.
Samuel Miller USA
I’m satisfied with Hanbridge and with my teacher Jamila. It is very convenient because she speaks French so it’s more easy to work. I think the method is good. It’s not always easy to organize lessons because of my agenda but she is very comprehensive.
Guillaume Vérité France
My teacher has been very patient with me in learning how to pronounce the Chinese words with the proper tones. My teacher is keeping me on pace to be able to complete the HSK #1 before I exit this position.The teacher and coordinator have been so helpful in making the lessons convenient. And the teacher is very helpful and allows me to deviate on interesting topics (learning new words and characters) during class instead of just sticking to a script. Class is one of my favorite parts of the week! Yes! The lessons are well-prepared, the teachers are very helpful, and the curriculum is very well-organized!
Learning Chinese language is good when you have a Chinese Teacher like Amy. She provides us. With an environment that makes learning comfortable and seemed easy. I would definitely endorse her to others who may want to learn Chinese language.

There are a lot of systematic teaching methods used by the teaching staff at Hanbridge Mandarin. With their help, I’m now able read Chinese news everyday.
The reading class is very interesting. After reading the articles, I discuss the implications with my teachers which allows my spoken Chinese ability to improve at the same time.
Aida Maki Japan
My kids loved this camp! It was a good experience. They had a great time and learnt Chinese in a fun and efficient way without even realizing it. The activities they arranged were fascinating, like paper cuttings, calligraphy, painting, were their favorite ones. Thank you Hanbridge Mandarin teachers, you are all nice and polite. We will miss Hanbridge Mandarin very much in near further. Highly recommended!

Myles Lyster Australia
I loved cooking since I was a child. When I met Chinese cuisine, I fell in love with it, but had no idea how to prepare any of the dishes I enjoyed. Mapo doufu is my favorite dish and also very easy to cook. In this program, I’ve learned all kinds of delicious tips and tricks.
Debra Smith America
In Canada, if I wanted to eat “Chinese” food, I had to go to a restaurant. However, after coming to China and eating authentic Chinese food, I decided to learn authentic methods preparing Chinese cuisine.
Kusum Rani Canada
Traditional Chinese culture amazes me. I have already learned Chinese painting and calligraphy in my university. However, I wanted to learn some other traditional arts, like Kongfu, Tai chi and paper-cutting. My teacher has been teaching me these ancient arts and we’re both enjoying our time together.
Triller Marko UK
I’m interested in Chinese traditional costumes, especially the embroidery on dresses - they are so beautiful and gorgeous! This class allows me to connect traditional costumes with the historical or dynastic period in China’s history giving me a more holistic view of this wonderful country.
Anthony DeGennaro America
Every time when I saw a Chinese tea master preparing tea with skilled and graceful techniques behind the table, I was a little intimidated. However, I wanted to know more. My time at Hanbridge Mandarin has given me a better understanding of tea culture and a bigger appreciation for China.
Mdm Chiew KF Singapore
After working for several years in China, I’m used to sipping excellent tea but had no idea how to make it or identify it. My friends at Hanbridge Mandarin proved to be excellent guides for my journey to becoming a “tea master.”
Sue Huang America
This class gave me a great introduction to Chinese history and culture. Understanding the past allows me to prepare for the future.
I first began learning a few Chinese words and sometimes was confused why some were used in certain places. Learning more about history and literature gives me the framework to understand not just the what, but the why.
Giorgio Pelosi Russia
Many of my clients are Chinese and I’ve always wanted to understand more about their belief structure to avoid embarrassing and costly mistakes. This class was just what I needed.
I have been in china for almost three years but haven’t been able to gain a great deal of knowledge about the deep aspects of culture here. This class brought my understanding to a new level.
Napa Sekiew Hongkong
This course was really interesting and gave me lots of food for thought. It’s probably time to rearrange the furniture in my house!
Tan Siao Min Singapore
I’m very interested in Eastern medicine and thought and this course provided a great starting point for my first foray into deeper knowledge of the need for balance.
I learned the origin of Chinese characters and the evolution of Chinese characters at Hanbridge Mandarin. Compared with before, I can now remember Chinese characters really well, because I understand the meaning of Chinese characters.

I love painting of all types and learning to paint in a traditional Chinese style was a special treat. Thanks for the opportunity Hanbridge Mandarin!

Jeffrey Rowallan Italy
After a Chinese massage relieved my migraine a few months ago, I’ve been really interested in learning more about the benefits and types of Chinese medicine. This class was a great start.
Thanks to this class, my Chinese penmanship and understanding of the importance of Chinese characters has improved exponentially.
Hannah Gonzales America
Chinese calligraphy is more than just learning to write: it’s an art form. I love combining communication and beauty.
Scott Hubbard America
I believe the only way to really learn about China and understand its culture is to learn Mandarin. Learning Mandarin is an integral part of me reaching my professional goals, so I shopped around several language schools and found Hanbridge Mandarin to be the most professional, best equipped and possessing the most experienced teachers of all the available options. If you’re serious about learning Chinese, choose Hanbridge Mandarin.
Robert Rice England
Studying at Hanbridge Mandarin has given me an opportunity to not just speak and understand Chinese, but also to read and write. The cultural activities offered by the school really allowed me to accelerate my learning progress and gain a deeper understanding of the culture. At Hanbridge Mandarin, I learned more than just how to use the Chinese language; I learned what it means to be Chinese.
Thierry Duroy France

Thanks to their guidance, I’ve advanced and improved my Chinese ability a great deal in a short amount of time. Hanbridge Mandarin is the real deal. I recommend them without reservation.
Aaron Catlin USA
I came to Hanbridge Mandarin to learn some Chinese to improve my communication skills while living in China and they’ve far surpassed my expectations.

If success is your only option, Hanbridge Mandarin is your only choice.
Colin May England
I arrived at Hanbridge Mandarin armed only knowing a small amount of Chinese and with a goal to learn enough to pass the HSK 4. Thanks to the professional teaching staff and excellent learning methodology, I’ve already passed the HSK 5 and will soon be prepared to pass the HSK 6 exam. Hanbridge Mandarin has exceeded my expectations, allowed me to achieve more than I’d expected and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Hanbridge Mandarin has allowed me to fulfill several Chinese learning goals. It has allowed me to enrich my travel experiences by giving me insight into Chinese culture. My communication skills have increased, allowing me to gain better perspective on the world. My classes have been professional and excellent and I'm glad to recommend Hanbridge Mandarin to others.
Caroline Burland France
Learning Mandarin has been a passion of mine for the last few years. Learning any language is so much more than just learning language syntax and words; it’s about immersing yourself in the culture and understanding more about how people in other places think, along with learning so many new things about their way of life that is different to your own. I also wanted to not just learn but to measure my learning, so I decided to take the HSK exams. Last year I passed HSK 3 and my plan for this year is to try to pass HSK 4. I feel like I’m well on the path to doing so. Online Mandarin training direct from China has accelerated my learning significantly. This year, I’ve been studying with the team at Hanbridge and they’ve helped to keep my on track and learning rapidly. My goal of higher HSK levels is well in sight.
Greg Low Australia
Hanbridge provided an ideal environment for us to take our first steps toward learning Mandarin. Our excellent teacher gave us the confidence and the tools to learn quickly and effortlessly. If you want to learn Mandarin quickly, Hanbridge is the place to go. We extend our sincere recommendation.
Ben & Meghan Bowser Canada & USA
I chose Hanbridge because they provide professional level language training in a warm and welcoming environment that makes learning easy. My excellent teachers were patient, kind and skilled.

We very much appreciated our teacher’s professionalism as a Chinese language teacher for foreigners (her English and French language abilities were both helpful), her availability, flexibility and patience. We also are very grateful for the flexible scheduling options provided Hanbridge and heartily recommend their services.
André & Dominique Ackermann France
Nice lessons, very interesting to learn Chinese but with teacher's clear explanations, it is even better. Lot of expressions and ways of speaking/thinking are different in Chinese than in an EU language, these are difficult to understood without a henhao laoshi.
Sylvain Serrano Sylvain Serrano
My child is 11 years old. He didn't like to learn Mandarin before because he thought Chinese pronunciation is very hard. Now he learns Chinese Phonetics course and general Chinese course in Hanbridge Mandarin for 3 months, he is more and more love Mandarin. He said class content is very interesting. I think Hanbridge Mandarin teachers are very professional and they can catch kids' attention.
Halima ALNET France
I like the Chinese classes, Wendy is very professional and efficient. Sometimes I'm tired and cantt think fast, excuse me. But it's really true that Wendy is a good teacher.
Patrice LESTRAT France
I'm much more than satisfied with my teacher, the Chinese class and the Hanbridge management for the flexibility with my schedule.

Kobayashi Takanori Japan
I'd like to thank you for the possibility to learn a little bit your language and so many interesting things about your country.

I hope I can continue my Chinese studies somewhere along the way.
Annegret ROHDE Germany
The first lesson with Lilian went well, I suspected she is a very good teacher and she was well aware of my level and the lesson where I stopped with Amanda. I am sure the lessons will continue smoothly in the future.

Jonathan WHITEHEAD England
As always I am very happy with my teacher Kitty. I have no criticism of her teaching, she is an excellent teacher. I would give her an A for all the points in the form. I would rate the experience as excellent.
Fiona Tisdall Blake Australia
My mother tongue is English.I can also speak French and Spanish.Chinese is my forth language.I like learning languages, and I want to learn more about Chinese culture. I had learned Chinese from other teachers in America before starting with Hanbridge. I think Hanbridge is very good because I much prefer Hanbridge's teaching approach. Instead of just learning little pieces or just learning small couple of words that the book teaches. My teacher gives me more words around one topic that I can understand a full conversation, then we practice...
Valerie de Charette America
I came to Hanbridge to learn the Chinese language because I am interested in Chinese history and culture. I've learned a great deal and Hanbridge that has allowed me to further explore my interests.
Sylvain JOUVE France
My teacher Clarice is excellent, great pace and focus of lesson about daily courses, helps me get further without stress, encourages me all the way. The timing works for me. I have recommended Hanbridge to several friends and clients, and hope something good comes of it. Many thanks!
Charlotta Oberg Australian
So far I'm satisfied with the daily course class. My teacher is really helpful and the way her teach is easy to understand. I feel very good.
The Webex online class normally works well but disconnect occasionally, it’s better to use skype for backup. The teachers are fantastic. I would like to adjust the history course of Ming dynasty to some others in the future. I suggest you all communicate with students by Chinese including email; Chinese version website is also in need.
My teachers are great, wonderful. I just wish the teachers will use more of the vocabulary/sentence pattern that I previously learned in the News classes. Also, when I learn a new word I hope the teachers can give me few sentence examples too.
