We absolutely support free online materials providing language access to all and helping to spread the love of language learning and Chinese culture. As free materials can give you a basic concept of the structure of Chinese, it is too fragmented to provide a school like learning environment to build the habit of learning. A fully structured course would benefit by working around your current vocabulary and fluency. Therefore having that 1-1 support and learning platform to track your learning progress would enhance your ability to master the language faster and more effectively.
We are dedicated to bridging the culture diversity all over the world and as Han people we welcome everybody with the same open arms. Hanbridge Mandarin, since 2008 have helped 1000’s of students to achieve their Chinese language goals and certifications. By providing full comprehensive course materials, dedicated professional teachers and convenience, we are one of the leading Mandarin institutions and dedicated to continuing bridging people for next decade.

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.
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!
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.

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.

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.
Edith is a very kind teacher and very attentive to my needs. Her English is fluent do her explanations are very clear. I was very satisfied to have her as my AP Chinese teacher.
I am enjoyed my AP Chinese class with Shiny so far, she´s dynamic, funny, and enthusiastic, well nothing to worry about, I have the feeling my Chinese level is becoming better. I am ready for the AP Chinese test now.
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。
I really like the topics studied in class as they are very practical and deal with modern situations. During the class, my teacher does a great job of correcting my pronunciation and mistakes. I’m learning so fast!
I attended AP Chinese preparation course for three months in Hanbridge Mandarin School. Now I passed the AP Chinese test, I want to say thank you to my teacher Shasha.
