Our Awards

Sometimes it can be hard to take something at face value in China and difficult to tell whether a school is speaking the truth or simply just speaking empty words. Talk is cheap and by making the claim to be China's premier Chinese language school we feel obliged to share some of the recognitions and awards we have received from within China and internationally.

One of our proudest achievements has been the recognition we have received from voting language study abroad agencies and organisations for the ‚ÄėWorld Language Provider Star Award' as awarded by Study Travel Magazine. In 2008 we were nominated as the first and to-date only Chinese language school and have since been nominated a further 8 times culminating in being awarded the top prize for the category in 2009 and 2013.

Why Mandarin House

As our Managing Director, Ms. Jasmine Bian stated at the time, "We are very proud to have won the Star Award... (and) we are going to continue to work hard and provide professional service to our students from all over the world. Mandarin House welcomes you to China.'

Other recognitions include being recommended by the Lonely Planet China Guidebook and winning the hosting rights for the 28th annual IALC Workshop, 2011 that was ultimately attended by just under 300 language professionals from around the globe showcasing our school to great praise and admiration, in the process become the largest language abroad industry event ever held in China.
