Hangzhou is a beautiful city, located in the Zhejiang province about 1 hour from Shanghai by train. It has abundant cultural heritages and natural beauty, Hangzhou is known as “Heaven on Earth” by the Chinese people. Hangzhou is famous for its lake and its love story. The night life in Hangzhou is also fun there are bars, karaoke or you can even go dancing.
I feel that I made the right choice in choosing Hangzhou. The weather here in Hangzhou is very good and there is very little pollution. In Hangzhou there are public bicycles that you can rent and travel around the city or you can travel easily in bus or by taxi cab. Mandarin Capital teachers are warm and welcoming and they will help you a lot in how to adapt to the city.
Teachers at Mandarin Capital are friendly and professional. My teachers tailored their instruction to my goals, emphasizing speaking, listening, reading and writing at different points during my study there. Classes also included fascinating information about Chinese culture and the Chinese people. I especially recommend MC classes to English teachers. Learning your own challenges in learning Chinese will help you be a better teacher to Chinese students learning English.
After 18 months of study, I left Hangzhou with the ability to read children's texts, carry on basic conversations with strangers and better understand the history and traditions of China.
As a first time visitor to China and a newbie to the Mandarin language, I was very unsure of what to expect for my experience at Mandarin Capital in Hangzhou. Mandarin Capital makes it convenient for students to have one on one interaction with teachers, something that I believe can be crucial to learning a new language.
The teachers are all so friendly and they each share a great sense of humor that brings liveliness to the school. Even though learning was initially strenuous and sometimes even frustrating, the teachers' patience and consistency helped me cope with the difficulty of the language.
Charlotte and I have really enjoyed our time in Hangzhou, our classes too, and 说实话(frankly speaking)，they've been one of the highlights of our time here in Hangzhou! Well, we came to Mandarin Capital because it was recommended by other EF teachers as a good school.
We like the way the classes are run, in particular the speaking practice it gives us. We like trying to explain our thoughts in Chinese, and using the vocabulary we learn to build sentences. So really, speaking practice and correcting our grammar have been the most useful things.
