I completed a 3-month intensive language course, which greatly improved my Chinese language capability. I appreciate the opportunity to have experienced the Chinese culture first-hand, as well as, the opportunity to make lifelong friendships with my classmates, teachers and the staff. Hutong School provided me with a safe and comfortable residence in which to stay. The staff was always willing and happy to help me with anything that I needed.
China is a fascinating country, it is full of opportunities and Hutong School helped me to explore them. The Chinese lessons in the morning, right before my internship, were a great help because I felt more confident when I had to talk to people. Hutong School is always there when you need them!
From arriving in Shanghai with no real clue what to expect, I left with a much broader sense of how Chinese culture and business operates in the modern world. I’m especially thankful to all those I worked alongside for contributing to my enrichment as well as the teaching staff who offered a fun, lively and interactive learning environment! …
I didn’t have any idea what to do after I graduated. So I focus myself in my business in México when I decided to start a new experience in China. That’s when I came across Hutong School while browsing on the net. I wanted to learn Chinese but not only focus on intensive courses, Hutong offered me a big portfolio of quality internships where I’ve founded a place on a nice company where I learn a lot about business in China while learning Chinese with Hutong excellent quality lessons. Totally recommended!
My time in Beijing with Hutong School was incredible! The staff are extremely helpful and friendly! The whole team made my stay very easy – starting from airport pick-up, accommodation, registration and public transport card. The teaching hours were flexible and matched perfectly my working hours.To sum it up: a great experience!
Starting from my initial email contact, the customer service was exceptional. I received excellent information and support before, during and after my classes. The instructors are skillfull and experienced both at teaching Chinese and adjusting to student and class needs. I was amazed at my progress after only one month!
Located in the heart of the beautiful French Concession, Hutong School offered me the experience of a lifetime. The teachers, staff and students were absolutely amazing and I still keep in contact with many of them. I participated in the Intensive Chinese Program and because of my wonderful teacher I went from absolute beginner to intermediate level Chinese in just 5 months!
A great organization that takes good care of you. From day one I was met with open arms by the Hutong School staff, which made the transition easy. They provided an important social structure and offered plenty of social events throughout my stay. Whether you’re an experienced traveller, or spending your first time abroad, Hutong School provides the much needed comfort, and administrative support, that helps you to solely focus on your stay abroad. My stay in Shanghai left me as a more experienced employee, and most importantly a happier person.
There is a level of comfort and amiable atmosphere at Hutong School that is very contagious. Only four months in Shanghai and I have made incredible friends, learned more about myself as a person than I ever could in my own country, and I never thought I would enjoy studying Chinese Mandarin this much. Hutong School definitely helped me to find comfort out of my comfort zone!
What separates Hutong School from all the other schools is the staff: everyone is nice, welcoming and engaged. The classes are very involved, and the group environment serves well for practicing speaking. After a few months, I was speaking Chinese well enough to be hired in a full time management position in Shanghai.
Hutong School is the backbone that makes your experience just that bit easier. The quality of the Chinese classes is good, the cultural activities are interesting and good for binding with new people. What makes Hutong School so great is probably the staff. Every staff member is a capable, friendly, happy person that you can bother about everyth…
Hutong School set me up with a nice flat in the centre of Beijing, taught me loads during class and led interesting cultural activities after class. The greatest thing was the flexibility to determine your own experience while also being provided the opportunity to experience as much as possible at every turn.
I ended up doing an internship in Beijing totally randomly. I didn't know a thing about China, or the working conditions there, or even how to say Hi in Chinese. Well, Hutong School destroyed all my fears, crashed the doubts you can have when moving in another country, and welcomed me as part of a big family.
Just kidding! His Chinese is already really impressive. But Mark, you're always welcome if you want to practice those tones ?
