“If you wish to learn Chinese in a serious yet enjoyable way, NiHao Language Education is your school. We experienced other places in Hong Kong and found it hard to find dedicated professors, capable to adapt their approach to our objectives. At NiHao, professors are professional, passionate and creative and they use the best and latest methods for Westerners. This makes the journey to Chinese language much easier and truly enjoyable. Thank you NiHao team!”

“We chose NiHao Language Education program on the recommendation of a colleague. After a short introductory lesson my wife and I both felt it was the right program for us. The teacher is excellent — friendly, patient, encouraging and persistent. The program is well organized — well thought through lesson plans, a pragmatic pace and good combination of in-class lesson time speaking with the instructor and at-home work and some social media to remind us of basics. NiHao is flexible and affordable and given our heavy travel schedule has been accommodating of our need to move lessons around.
It is an excellent program. It’s also fun and brings us back to our college days when we studied other languages and we often leave classes with smiles on our faces.”

“I took Mandarin lessons with Nihao Language Education a few years ago and recently, as I came back to Hong Kong, I joined again their course to catch-up on my lost mandarin.
I enjoy individual lessons at NiHao, the teacher can adjust to my level and tailor the lessons to my need. The teacher is very motivated, professional and understands my common “non-native speaker” mistakes and quickly corrects me. I especially like that the teacher is flexible and can accommodate my schedule and trips.
For my part, I opted to take the lesson at their office which is conveniently located in Central to avoid any distraction from home or office.
I can recommend without any hesitation NiHao for learning Mandarin the fun way.”
“My experience with NiHao Language Education has been nothing but positive. At the beginning of my first lesson I was told that I will learn 15 sentences – and come the end I knew 17 sentences – and since then they continually surpass my expectations. The learning methods employed are unique, fun and ensure that I learn Mandarin in the quickest way possible. My 2.5hr lesson flies by as if it was only 1 hour and I’ve managed to communicate on daily basis in China from my first visit. NiHao education come with the highest recommendation!”

“I am super happy with NiHao Language Education. I could start learning Chinese in the last 18 months. And at the same time discover Chinese culture. My teacher is very nice, very patient, very flexible on schedules. She gives many “tips” to understand and remember the Chinese characters, including sending pictures on our cell phones. She gives us homework to do at home, that advance and retain all the lessons that are very rich. It was a real pleasure to learn Chinese with her.”

“I began to learn Chinese with NiHao Language Education for almost one year and a half. We are a small group of French people who started at the same time. With our teacher, we learn Chinese language and culture and speak in English to understand each other. It’s very easy to understand her explanations in English language. She gives us some homework almost every lesson to learn easily. She made us grow in Chinese language.
She is very patient and nice, she always tries to adjust her schedule to our Availabilities, she is very flexible. She is very pleasant and smiling, and it is a pleasure to have her as a teacher.”

“I’ve been here for 3 years, and this is my second Mandarin course. I found my Chinese made a great progress during these three years. I have already passed the HSK Level Three, and now I am preparing the HSK Level Four. What this allows me to do is to travel to China and speak the authentic language with Chinese, which is very helpful. And the classes are tailor for me, so not only do I study the HSK also I’ve been leaning the Chinese culture. I like the flexibility of the classes, they suit my schedule, so if I have business trip, I can easily change it. My teacher is very passionate, patient and responsive. This is a very good, positive learning experience and I will definitely recommend NiHao Language Education.”

“I really enjoy my Chinese course at NiHao. I like the teachers here, they are very experienced, passionate, patient, delightful and charming. They came to lessons well prepared. I was nervous about the Chinese pronunciations, and they are very helpful and directing me the correct and creative ways of the pronunciations, makes me feel quite confident. The learning materials are very well designed and structured, makes easy to speak Chinese and there are many types of exercises, among them, I really like the role play in my group, which gives me more interactions with other students. And I also like the flexibility, I can attend both group lesson and one on one lesson, which reinforces my Chinese very much. And I also like their little Chinese on their Facebook page, it’s quite interesting and I can learn extra words and expressions beyond the classes. Overall, my learning experience with NiHao Language Education is very positive, thank you NiHao team!”

“I have been learning Chinese for around 6 years, my teacher Alice is very patient and passionate. After I learned Chinese, I have confident in travelling to China by myself and communicating with locals in authentic Chinese. She has taught me lots of Chinese cultures, made me understand learning a language actually is knowing about its culture background. And she adjusted the lessons to my needs and my learning speed. I very much appreciated having she as my Chinese teacher and I very much enjoy the lessons with her.”

“I’ve been study Mandarin Chinese for one year. At the beginning, I studied by myself, I spent lots of time but found I didn’t learn that much. Finally, I made the decision to find a teacher. This was really a correct decision I have ever made. I came across NiHao Language Education. My teacher is awesome, she is really experienced and patient, really helps me a lot in learning pronunciation, remembering vocabulary and understanding Chinese culture. For something scary like learning Mandarin are four basic tones and a neutral tone, and things are different than English language. I have an amazing teacher and the materials are well organized, which make me eager to learn Mandarin. I am very encouraged to see the progress I made in a short time I’ve been here. I am really thankful that I got a good teacher and I am very happy to learn Mandarin at NiHao, I will continue to learn Mandarin, and I highly recommend NiHao to you.”

As a complete beginner I was able to learn at my own pace but due to the material and the excellent teaching, you still feel you are making progress. My teacher was extremely friendly and flexible around busy schedules and I found it very beneficial having one on one sessions. The school is nothing but professional and enjoyed the learning experience, I highly recommend NiHao!”

“If you’re interested in learning Chinese and are looking for an unintimidating starting point, then the NiHao Language Education is a great place to begin.
I have no background in languages and previously struggled at school when studying subjects such as French and German. Initially I was apprehensive, expecting to encounter the same issues and difficulties, however my teacher provided intuitive one-to-one lessons, encouraging me along the way and staying in regular contact between lessons.
The focus has been not on memorizing long texts and symbols, but on learning day-to-day conversations and understanding the structure of the Chinese Language. NiHao are also a flexible organization, with lessons that fit round my hectic work life, where I am based in multiple different offices throughout Hong Kong.”
