Silk Mandarin Success

I've really enjoyed the one on one experience of learning Mandarin with Catherine at Silk Mandarin.
The resources are great, and cater to many types of learners. Learning tools include slideshows, videos, powerpoints, text books and work books. There is a real variety to help you do your best.
Catherine is always positive and has energy and a kind nature.
I've been able to do the classes as frequently as my schedule allows and am inspired to practice Mandarin in my daily life.
Thank you Silk Mandarin

Great teaching program.

I really liked my teacher Christana. She was so calm but also very direct to where she was going in the teaching and kept the pace .
I liked it very much how she approached the subject professionally and was patient with me. Due to the time difference I was waking up very early to catch the course. So sometimes I was more tired than often before.
I also really liked the extra curricular activities I was able to take online in addition to the private lessons.
Being able to revisit the material again and again to understand it better,
that was great.

Make the progress you want with Silk Mandarin

My experiences of learning Chinese with Silk Mandarin have been very positive.
I have been very fortunate to have a wonderful teacher who is always good humoured and patient and supports and guides me when I make mistakes. I always feel encouraged to continue.
I chose Silk Mandarin precisely because of its video materials and blended learning approach. I also found the flashcards extremely helpful to me in learning how to read Chinese characters.
What has surprised me recently is that I have been able to learn to recognise and remember some Chinese characters which has enabled me to learn to start reading Chinese. Previously I had never thought this would be possible for me.

I would recommend Silk Mandarin for anyone who is serious about wanting to lean or improve their Chinese.

  • Blended learning
  • Videos with vocabulary and grammar which allows for flexible learning
  • Flashcard with characters
  • You need to put in enough hours to keep up with the learning

Blended Learning- Online Class

I took the blended learning class online because I lived in another city and had a busy life schedule. Everything about this program was amazing. I felt heard. Amy took her time creating the perfect schedule for me so that attendance and study were attainable. I actually took both HSK 1 and HSK 2 with Silk Mandarin and both time felt supported. The class sizes are small enough that everyone can practice and the pace of the class is also good. My skill set has improved drastically. I honestly tell everyone I know about this program.

  • Staff support
  • Educational materials
  • pace
  • pricing but you get a lot

Great experience with Silk Mandarin

Earlier I learned HSK 1 from other language school but after joining Silk Mandarin my life is much easier in China. All my concepts are cleared now . I am more confident then before . Silk Mandarin has a unique method of teaching . As I am a online student I like the slow motion techniques more. I understand mandarin more in an easy way through slow motion technique. Apart from this technique I really like the teachers. The teachers are so professional and friendly also. They understand you and help to improving your skill of learning. I am very thankful to Silk Mandarin staff and teachers to give me a wonder full experience and motivated me more to learn HSK levels . Thank you so much .

Mandarin learning

I´ve realized I should learn Mandarin after I decided to do business with Chinese people. I had no choice but to study online, so I started looking for a Chinese language school. Sooner I came across Silk Mandarin.
There I found a highly qualified team and unique teaching method. Its business development team was effective at organizing the class schedule due to my time zone difference. Teachers go an extra mile providing online tools to practice and additional materials to help me with characters and listening. In a brief time, I was already feeling comfortable with the new language.
I highly recommend Silk Mandarin for anyone seeking to learn or improve Mandarin in a fast and pleasant way.

This course is great!

For a person like me, who doesn't have much free time, this course is perfect. It's once a week but lasts for 90minutes. A lots of material is covered in just one class and then it's self study that reinforces the learning. The videos on the teaching platform are very helpful and well designed in terms of duration and interactive content. The classes are fun and engaging and filled with interesting activities. I have nothing but great things to say about Silk Mandarin Training Institute. Keep up the good work!

My Silk Mandarin Learning Experience

This is my second online course ever and I would have to say I really enjoyed it. The teacher student interactions were great and I thought the course notebooks and ppt are very informative and supplemental to the studying. The pictures and graphs in the texts books really helped me get an idea of what I was studying. I think the simplicity of this course and the way they designed it online really work well to help students process the information and maintain it. The assignments in the beginning of the course seem relatively long, but I thought everything was very fair and the questions were well presented. I think your grading is very well done and I really enjoyed taking every moment of it!! This was an opportunity I was not given at my current four year university. Thanks again Hannah 老师!
