I decided to begin learning Mandarin with Culturestride and after two months, I am already able to have simple conversations and aim to become fluent in speaking and reading.

Culturestride's private lessons have allowed me to progress my Chinese at a personalised pace, as my speaking and writing abilities are very different. Because of that reason, I've always found group lesson formats frustrating.

Culturestride splits lessons up well so I get a good balance between speaking, reading, writing and revision. With in-depth PowerPoints and homework, I've been able to progress faster and retain my knowledge along the way.

The lessons are super practical and relatable, which helps a lot with learning. It's not like copying and writing the same character 10 times, but instead how to use language in a real-life situation.

Culturestride and my teacher Lis has been amazing - they've adapted the pace (and the pricing model) to suit my needs since I already have some knowledge around the basics and a Cantonese background.

Being an ABC, I’ve always been urged by my Chinese friends or relatives to improve my Chinese. The decision to learn / re-learn Chinese from Culturestride was the best decision I ever made!
