How Our Students Say About NIHAO

Richard史睿畅Shǐ Ruìchàng

English

“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.”

“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.

I like the flexibility a lot, I can attend both group lesson and one on one lesson, which reinforces my Chinese very much.

I also like their little Chinese on their Facebook page and Instagram, 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!”

“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!”

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.

“I have been learning Mandarin at NIHAO for the past 3 years through one on one classes. My level is intermediate two now. I’ve passed the HSK Level Three exam and am preparing for HSK Level Four.

I’ve very much enjoyed my classes at NIHAO. My teachers are passionate, energetic, and dynamic but also patient and perseverant.

The materials provided, tailor-made by NIHAO, are of good quality and well adapted to my level.

The class is taking place through face-to-face meeting at a super convenient location, or sometimes through Zoom in the recent coronavirus period.

Overall, I strongly recommend NIHAO to potential students aiming to improve his/her level of Mandarin.”

Lauriane Lemaire林洛灵Lín Luòlíng

“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.”

“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!”

“我是法国人,我在香港住了五年了。我在香港工作,但是我经常去中国大陆出差。我五年前刚来香港的时候,我自己找了一个汉语老师,但是那个老师教得不太好,也没有定制的有趣的学习材料。

但是我很幸运,我的公司找到了「你好」,老师教得非常好,知道我的问题在哪里,特别有耐心,语法点讲得很清楚,例子也非常实用,我很喜欢「你好」的学习材料,很有趣。

我最喜欢「你好」的定制的练习题和故事书,故事书里的内容和我一模一样,我感觉就是为我写的,我很开心!而且我的老师很有激情,每一节课都很认真,在「你好」学汉语学了两年了,我现在可以和上海的同事们完全用中文说话,发信息、写邮件也全用汉字。

「你好」给了我重新学习汉语的热情,而且持续不断地有很多很有意思的材料让我学,老师的教学方法也不断地在创新。

很多人觉得学汉语的声调很难,学写汉字很难,但是我不这样认为,用「你好」的教学方法和学习材料,我的汉语进步地特别快,我们中国大陆的同事现在都叫我「汉语通」。在「你好」学习,我非常开心,非常推荐「你好」!”

“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 the Chinese language much easier and truly enjoyable. Thank you NIHAO team!”

Françoise Bonnet白惠茜Bái Huìqiàn

“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, we are six. With our teacher, we learn the Chinese language and culture and speak in English to understand each other.

It’s very easy to understand her explanations in the English language. Our teacher gives us some homework almost every lesson to learn easily. She made us grow in the Chinese language. Our teacher 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 have been learning Chinese at NIHAO for around 6 years, my teacher is very patient and passionate.

After I learned Chinese at NIHAO, I have confidence in traveling to China by myself and communicating with locals in authentic Chinese.

My teacher has taught me lots of Chinese cultures, which made me understand learning a language actually is knowing about its cultural background. And she adjusted the lessons to my needs and my learning speed.

I very much appreciated having her as my Chinese teacher and I very much enjoy the lessons at NIHAO.”

“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 distractions from home or office.

I can recommend without any hesitation NIHAO for learning Mandarin the fun way.”

Scott Steyn史思涛Shǐ Sītāo

“I enjoy my Mandarin lessons a lot at NIHAO.

The teaching materials are well structured, organized and they make my learning faster and easier.

And my teacher is very understanding, very patient, and makes my lessons enjoyable.

The learning environment is good, I can focus my lessons quickly.

Besides classes, there are more additional materials, handouts and homework for me, I like these exercises very much.

I highly recommend NIHAO Language Education to my friends and colleagues and I look forward to more lessons.”

Dan Wells万俊驰Wàn Jùnchí

“At the beginning of my first trial lesson I was told that I will learn 12 sentences – and come to 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 2.5-hour lesson flies by as if it was only 1 hour and I’ve managed to communicate on a daily basis in China from my first visit.

I have just finished my second Mandarin lesson for the week, recapping the last 8 lessons in my textbook and then learning how to book a plane ticket with a travel agent…  There are some parts of the language which are easier than Spanish (which I learned at school) – for example, you do not need to change the verb depending on the tense – which makes learning them significantly easier! There are some set rules which you have to think of before answering, for example, you have to state the time of the action (i.e. next week) before stating the action itself, but once you get used to this it isn’t too bad.

I am focussing on 80% of my effort on learning the Pinyin, but Chinese characters are very interesting to learn and write, although they are very challenging! There is even a set order that you have to do the strokes in order to make the character.

Thankfully the lessons are really enjoyable and done in such a way that advances my learning quickly and efficiently, so much so that the time flies by!

My experience with Nihao Language Education has been nothing but positive! If you would like to learn Mandarin or Cantonese in an enjoyable and effective manner, please contact Alice by clicking the link below or contact me to introduce you! Nihao education comes 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 at NIHAO.”

Francois Fevrier方恒业Fāng Héngyè

“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 have been taking Mandarin lessons with NIHAO Language Education for one year and a half, what I most like are their creative teaching methods and teachers.

Teachers at NIHAO are experienced, passionate, and patient. I also like the flexibility of the course and the learning materials.

The materials cover all aspects of Chinese, which makes me not only practice my oral Chinese, characters but also know more about Chinese culture.

I am lucky to study at NIHAO and I really enjoy my lessons and will continue to study Mandarin. I strongly recommend NIHAO!”

“I’ve been studying Mandarin Chinese for one year. In 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 the 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 Mandarin has four basic tones and a neutral tone, and many things are different from the English language. But I have an amazing teacher at NIHAO and the materials are well organized, which makes 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 here and I am very happy to learn Mandarin at NIHAO, I will continue to learn Mandarin, and I highly recommend NIHAO to you.”

“I’ve been here for 3 years, and this is my second Mandarin course at NIHAO. I found my Chinese made 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 at NIHAO are tailor-made 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 a 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.”

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!”

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「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.”

“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!”

“We chose the NIHAO Language Education program on the recommendation of one of my colleagues. 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 a 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 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.”

“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 is also a flexible organization, with lessons that fit around my hectic work life, where I am based in multiple different offices throughout Hong Kong.”
