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.

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 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.

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!
