When I first came to China, I really don’t know Chinese language, I’m a totally beginner. After one month learning in Hanbridge Mandarin, I found I can go shopping and take a taxi in Chinese, it is very practical. Now I know how to order food in Chinese restaurant. I think Chinese food is very delicious and it is very interesting to talk with Chinese people. I will continue to learn Chinese in Hanbridge Mandarin.
