"Mandarin House is the best place to learn Chinese!"
Q: How are you finding your studies in China?
A: China is the best place to learn Chinese! I learned Chinese before in Canada; but I find it's too slow.
Q: What do you find most interesting about Shanghai?
A: Amazing Bicycle skills on display every day. How can so many people live together so well? It seems to work.
Q: What advice/tips would you give to others who plan to come and study in China?
A: Speak Chinese. So many people do not do so. Shanghai is international enough so that you don't really have to, but the experience is much less if you do not participate in the language.
