My learning experience at MoTai has been incredibly rewarding and I would recommend it to those who want to build on their mandarin skills. After living in China for a year I wanted to maintain what I had learned, but I have found my level of mandarin has improved more rapidly in the first 10 weeks at MoTai than it did in a whole year. Small groups which make for a perfect learning environment as well as allowing you to practise with similar level speakers. I look forward to continuing my studies with MoTai.
I started at Motai Mandarin as I was keen to learn. My teacher Grace has been wonderful. Time was taken to make sure I grasp the basics of the language. Grace teaching technique is fun and this helps make the learning process easier. Textbooks are provided which is great as I can refer to the books when I revise. The time and location in the city is convenient as well. I will be continuing at Motai Mandarin.
I started learning mandarin language with Mo Tai Mandarin, as an older person, semi-retired. I have found the experience (2 hours a week with a class group of 3 or 4 students, for 7 weeks so far) to be fascinating and intellectually stimulating - though it must be one of the more difficult languages to learn I think. The teachers are professionally trained and use a well-defined path to introduce you to sentence structure, pronunciation, and writing and reading characters. I have signed up for a second term because I enjoy the classes, though I am not sure if I will ever be very proficient in the language.
This course is excellent! The teacher is very professional and provides activities which challenges and stretches your linguistic boundaries! Definitely recommend learning Mandarin through MoTain Mandarin
I have completed two terms with MoTai and recommend it to anybody curious, interested or to further there knowledge in Mandarin. Isabella my teacher is great, she is patient and tailors the class to the students learning capacity. A bonus is the small classes so you never get left out or behind.
The teaching is great and the classes are very in depth so it's very easy to understand. The materials and facilities provided are outstanding for the fee.
I'm about to finish my first module and will definitely enrol in the next one.
Isabella is a patient and encouraging teacher that makes learning Chinese more interesting and fun during classes and assist in what you need to know in order to improve.
I would definitely recommend anyone that's looking for an excellent Mandarin teacher and business purposes as MoTai Mandarin makes it a your language learning experience not only fun but an easier learning experience.
