As a business executive my time is limited and precious but the team at Mo Tai Mandarin are extremely patient and flexible with my changing schedule. Their service is excellent and the training I am receiving is invaluable. My teacher Isabella is a very good teacher who ensures that every part of my training is exact. I learn not only about the language but also about the culture which I believe is very important.
Peter Jamieson Chief Executive Officer
Very satisfied with the training from MoTai – Isabella Yi was a great Laoshi who was patient and she taught us well. Isabella was very knowledgeable, we learnt best once we could practice and repeat, play games and review the characters. I would recommend MoTai to my colleagues wishing to study another language. The classes are tailored to suit any skill level.
Dorothy Chapman National Marketing Manager
During our one on one lessons, Isabella was a kind and patient teacher, helping me navigate the language but also answering broader questions about Chinese culture and application of language in social situations. Having completed the course I feel far more comfortable in my regular travels to China, and able to communicate with increased confidence and ease. I would highly recommend the course for Beginners alongside the wonderful service from MoTai Mandarin.
Beth Keamy Senior Social Strategist
Isabella is an amazing teacher and did well at structuring the course to my requirements. She provided extra homework as requested each week which really helped boost my learning. Overall very happy and will be continuing my course with MoTai.
