Best for: People Who Hate Taking Notes
The Mandarin Café is That’s Mandarin’s secret weapon: an entirely online record of all your lessons to date, where you can listen to the pronunciation, see the pinyin and characters and review your homework. In our lesson we found being freed from the tyranny of notes or worry that we would forget it all helped us concentrate. While we were concerned that the online system would mean the teacher would be a bit inflexible, she easily adapted the lesson to the lingo we wanted to learn and entered the weird words we requested into the system to see (and review) later. Our teacher was fun and friendly, with more of a focus on pushing through the vocab than assiduously correcting our grammar.
“Our unique teaching methods are storytelling and link words. By using storytelling, scenarios and simulation, students understand the meaning and usage of new vocabulary and grammar and they can easily use what they have learned during class to communicate with local Chinese people. Link words create associative memory by using familiar things to help you memorize words, pronunciation and even Chinese characters. We only employ teachers with extensive experience and training. They tailor each student a study plan based on their level and interests to ensure students make the maximum amount of progress in the minimal amount of time."
