Learning Mandarin in Hong Kong become a great experience, I am a banker myself, my schedule is always busy, therefore, I can only take private lessons, I need the flexibility of the lessons, I came to International Language Centre in Central in 2012, the place is very close to my office, and the teachers there are very professional with high flexibility, I know I need to learn more Mandarin and do my homework, sorry my teacher, I forgot to do my homework again, see you in the class! 🙂

Mandarin Lesson in Hong Kong

ILC is a fantastic place to learn languages and I highly recommend it! A few months ago when I was in search for a good school to improve my Mandarin speaking. I was very lucky to have found ILC as I believe it is the most effective school I’ve tried. In just a short amount of time, I began to be able to make basic conversations!

Mandarin Tutor Hong Kong

I was trying to learn Mandarin language by myself in 2010, at the beginning, the tones in Chinese language really drives me crazy, especially the 2nd tone and the 3rd tone, for me, the sound the same, and I knew the tones really tell the difference between one word and another, I think I must find a Mandarin tutor in Hong Kong, I enrolled a 30 hours Beginner Mandarin Course in ILC, after 10 hours lesson, I felt much confident with the tones, my teacher, May is really patient when she was teaching me Mandarin, now I can speak accurate Mandarin already.

Mandarin Language Course – Kelda Jeanette

Learning Mandarin has never been so interesting! Me and my husband moved into Hong Kong 2 years ago, and we started learning Mandarin since then, we took a 30 hours Mandarin course in Wanchai, honestly It was not what we were looking for, I wouldn’t say the tutor is not good, but I think learning a language should be more interesting than just reading the book and repeating the words, therefore, after 30 hours class, we decided to leave, 2 months after that, we picked up Mandarin again, this time, we found the ILC which is located in Central, the class is always fun and professional, teachers there make learning Mandarin language more fun, I like the teaching method and after 3 months learning at ILC, I think my Mandarin improved a lot!

Learn Mandarin in ILC

I have been learning Mandarin at the ILC for about 2 months, I feel my Mandarin improved a lot and now I can speak a little bit when I go to China for business, sometimes, I need to have presentation in Mandarin, now I can slowly manage to do that, my teacher helped me to build up my confidence. I understand that tones are very important in Mandarin, therefore my teacher told me to keep practising the tones, at the beginning, it is really tough, since all my tones were wrong, and it was so frustrated to correct every single words, but now I can pronounce the tone perfectly , this is really really helpful for my mandarin learning.

Mandarin Lesson in Hong Kong

Learning Mandarin in Hong Kong is a fantastic experience! I work in a media company, I need to travel to China quite often. while travelling in China, I believe that Speaking Mandarin is a must, people in mainland China do not speak very good English, therefore, I must learn Chinese! I am a native English speaker, Chinese for me is really difficult at the beginning, especially the tones, but after 6 months, I am very happy about learning the Mandarin tones, I think the language is beautiful with rhythm, my tutor Jessie told me that learning the tones is the most important thing in learning Chinese, I trust her,  and now my Chinese ascent is perfect! I will keep learning Mandarin Chinese!
