The teacher’s flexibility helped me address speaking issues I have had for a long time, because classes were tailored to practice the grammar I most struggled with. I also really appreciated the teacher follow-up. If I raised a question one day, the teachers prepared an exercise for that question the next day.

Michael Kehoe

I had never learned Chinese before, but was able to quickly pick up the basics without feeling overwhelmed.

Finola Hackett

Each of my teachers first listened carefully to the description of my Chinese language background and then took that into account when developing supplementary materials...My teachers were always vigilant in improving my ability to express myself in Chinese.

David Purnell

The teachers were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. They went the extra mile to incorporate material into the classes that were relevant to my interests and working life.

Michael Salmon

All the teachers truly cared that I enjoyed class and studied material I found useful and interesting. I learned more than I ever hoped for, and had fun the whole time.
