The learning environment at Nihao Language Education is superb!

From day one I was challenged in a fun and engaging way throughout each of my 2-hour classes, 3 classes per week. Not only have I learned many new Chinese characters, phrases, and expressions, but the teachaers at Nihao always make sure to integrate important Chinese cultural norms and ways of life!

Moreover, my teachers were also extremely flexible and patient in working around my schedule and always kept a positive attitude no matter what!

I highly recommend Nihao Language Education to anyone looking to learn or enhance their Chinese language skills.

“大家好,我是Barry,我的中文名是郭柏荣。我刚刚通过了HSK5。我非常开心一直在「你好」学习。

我现在在准备HSK 6,我的目标是在这两年可以通过HSK6并且拿高分。我的老师非常好,非常认真地给我上好每一节课。我的课堂很有趣,每次上课我都觉得时间过得特别快。

我很喜欢「你好」课程中的成语的部分,比如,我今天学了「一石二鸟」,这个和英文是差不多一样的意思,我非常喜欢这样的成语和成语后面的故事。我也很喜欢中文歌曲,之前我去CCTV 4 中文国际频道,我唱了一首《今夜你会不会来》,大家都说我的中文非常好。

学了汉语后,我很喜欢去内地旅行,认识新的朋友。我也很喜欢中国的食物,因为每个城市的风景和特色都不一样,食物也不一样,人才也是不一样的。我在旅行的时候,有问题,我问我的老师,我的老师很及时地在微信上非常耐心地回答我。「你好」也在课程中给我评估和指导方向,我觉得非常好。

现在,我可以用中文和我的中国朋友们聊天、做演讲。我觉得想要学好中文,你不能害羞,不能害怕犯错。就算你说错了,有人笑你,那也没什么大不了的。等他们笑完之后,你就可以问他们,你笑啥呢?为什么你笑我呢?我是不是有的词说错了?哪里说错了?你可以教我怎么讲才能讲得更地道。

我自己经常犯错,我除了在「你好」上课,还喜欢参加「你好」的「中文练习俱乐部」,我很喜欢在那里和人们聊天。

「你好」把课堂和课下相结合,我觉得特别好。我非常推荐「你好」的汉语课程!”

“I was introduced to NIHAO through my good friend. It’s a really good experience. My lessons are one to one, one lesson per week. I am a complete beginner, I have been studying for 14 sessions so far.

I have been learning about how to introduce myself, how to talk about my friends, family, and colleagues, and learning about ordering food and drinks at restaurants, and also learning how to direct a taxi driver, how to arrange my schedule, to book a hotel and a restaurant, and go shopping buy stuff and some bargain tips. The topics are really interesting and practical.

I have an extra grammar book designed by NIHAO. It’s easy for me to understand the structure of Chinese. Their Building Block Methodology is quite useful, you can make sentences easily from the basic building blocks. And I also like NIHAO extra exercises and oral topics, they are tailor-made for me, oral topics are very practical.

Before starting Chinese, I didn’t know where to start with learning, either Chinese characters or sentence orders, but since studying Chinese at NIHAO, it’s really interesting to find out the structure by applying the NIHAO building block method. It’s much more simple than what I thought. My friends say I made great progress. And my teacher is so professional and patient. I am so happy to study at NIHAO.

I would highly recommend NIHAO.”

“大家好,我是Greg。我在「你好」学汉语学了三年半了,现在我的汉语是中级三。

我很开心在这里学习。我有两个老师,我的两个老师教得都很好。我的老师们都很有耐心,非常专业,非常认真。

我很喜欢「你好」的学习材料,很口语,学完了就可以马上用在生活的说话中。除了上课,我也喜欢「你好」在Facebook,LinkedIn和Instagram上面的成语。除了课堂的上课,我的老师们还经常在微信给我纠正我的问题,我也很喜欢「你好」的微信的文章,有很多文化的文章。

我很喜欢「你好」的「语言交换活动」,我几乎每次都参加,可以在聊天的轻松环境中练习我的口语。我会在「你好」继续学汉语,现在我和我的中国的朋友们说话越来越自信,他们都说我的汉语很好,很流利。

我向每一位希望会说一口流利的中文的朋友们推荐「你好」!「你好」的课程非常系统,有条理,很专业, 老师们也都很有耐心,非常认真地教学生。”

“I started the NIHAO Mandarin Program because my wife is Chinese. I did it three times per week.

The classes are so well-organized, the homework my teacher gave me is really tailor-made.

I am very surprised how the lessons are set up, basically, every lesson, you are learning how to interact with other people daily topics, introducing others, ordering food and drinks, talking with a taxi driver, buying stuff in China. Everything will be very useful if you are in China.

I really like NIHAO conversational teaching method. Instead of boring repetition, I was taught to learn Mandarin through conversations, I can remember new vocabularies easily in this way, topics in the tailor-made materials are very interesting and practical.

I would highly recommend the NIHAO Mandarin course. As a complete Beginner, the NIHAO course is really approachable and very well set up.”

“Hi all, my name is Marco and I come from Italy. I started learning Mandarin in February 2020, since I had a lot of spare time during the COVID 19. NIHAO has been recommended by a good friend of mine.

I am very happy about this choice and I am happy I did it with NIHAO!.

My teacher Violet is very professional, she has a lot of patience, and she’s been very supportive during this beginning phase.

I am very happy about learning Chinese and I look forward to traveling soon again to China and show my colleagues my progress!

NIHAO is a professional education center in teaching Chinese and very organized. They provide extra tailor-made books, they keep track of my progress and offer some tests to me during the course and after the whole course, they are flexible in timing arrangement and I am sure I will continue my journey to make it to HSK Level One, Two and Three!

I will keep on going with NIHAO, and I highly recommend NIHAO to other people like me who want to start Mandarin for business purposes!”

“大家好,我是Francois,我的中文名字是方恒业。因为我经常去中国大陆出差,所以我学习汉语。我的公司在比较了好多的语言中心以后,最终选择了「你好」。

我在「你好」上课上得非常开心。我的老师很有耐心,非常专业,非常博学,定制的学习材料非常适合我,内容很有趣。

我在「你好」学习了3年半了,我每个星期上两次课Best ,有时候我不去中国大陆出差的时候,我每天都上汉语课。一开始我觉得汉语有点儿难,但是「你好」的课程结构非常科学,非常有创新。

「你好」的学习材料很有趣,里面的内容很潮流,非常实用,我每次上完课都能把课上学到的新的词语,生活中的成语、社会中的潮语用到生活中,和我的中国的同事们练习汉语。

我的中国的同事们都说我的进步非常快,我很开心,我也觉得我的进步很大, 我现在一见到中国的同事就说汉语。

我最喜欢「你好」的故事书和汉字书。我每次学完一本故事书,都很期待Alice给我编写出新的故事书,她非常有创新,而且她写的定制的故事书和我的教材的词语非常有关系。

我现在是中级二,我很喜欢现在的课程中新加入的成语和俗语系列,我也非常喜欢「你好」的课程加入了很多中国的文化的因素。文化和语言一起学,我越来越喜欢上我的汉语课。

我非常推荐「你好」!”

“I was referred to NIHAO by my best friend. Teachers at NIHAO are really amazing.

I had learned Mandarin before at another language center, I was never corrected when I made mistakes in my tones and sentence orders at another language center. I didn’t even know there is a Half Third Tone and the basic Chinese sentence order should be [Subject+When+Where+How+Action], which I learned at NIHAO Language Education.

NIHAO has formulated rules for pretty much everything in the Mandarin course, so I found it’s very logical the way they teach Mandarin. The other thing that I really enjoy doing is every week I am amazed that I am speaking more and more Mandarin especially when the class is going on, I made to narrate stories in Mandarin, which I didn’t think that I could do it before when I started to study Mandarin. I feel I have improved a lot, I am so happy to study at NIHAO.

If you want to learn Mandarin in a correct and efficient way, I highly recommend NIHAO!”

“I would like to share my experience of learning Cantonese course at Nihao Language Education.

I have been learning from Milki, who is an amazing teacher because when I started to learn Cantonese, I thought I would never be able to do it, I thought it was so hard. But after my Cantonese course with Milki, I made great progress.

The teacher is really good, very passionate, the teachers at NIHAO have a high level of professionality, I made a lot of progress.

I really enjoy my course at NIHAO, I highly recommend NIHAO to all of you!”

“I have been referred to NIHAO by my boss to say how good the course was. I have started Mandarin for three months. I am very impressed with how the teacher made learning Mandarin so easy and fun.

The materials are great, and NIHAO also provides tailor-made extra exercises and interesting storybooks. They are very professional in the study materials. They have creative methods to make your pronunciation especially tones and tones changes perfectly. I am very happy to study here.

And I really like their tailor-made assessments in the middle of the course and after the full course. They have a very comprehensive and efficient teaching method, so I really recommend NIHAO to anyone who is going to learn Mandarin.”
