I decided to quit my job and take a 3 months crash course. A decision I do not regret. Hutong School is honestly always there to support you with daily things and to help you out...Learning Chinese is a whole different experience, since you have to cross a cultural border to understand the language and its structure.
The staff at Hutong School were incredibly helpful and flexible in organizing my study schedule. I took some one-on-one classes as well as the group lessons and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. My teachers were so kind and patient, but at the same time they really challenged me to work as hard as I could.
Excellent reception with 24h service for any issue or language problem that could arise. My Chinese teacher was very dedicated and skilled. I learned more in my five weeks in Shanghai than I had learnt two years studying at home.
I’ve joined the Hutong School in Beijing and Shanghai two times already – and every time it was a great and wonderful experience. The accommodation is quite okay. The people at the Hutong School are very nice and helpful in every way. The teachers are very motivated and well prepared. And the School offers a lot of fun free-time activities. The “Hutong-School-weeks” were one of my best in my live – and I can recommend it in every way. You not only learn a lot – you also meet a lot of new friends.
My stay at the Hutong School was amazing because I had super good professors and I have met a lot of different students from all around the world during my 6 months' stay. More you stay, better it is to improve faster your Chinese level and share incredible moments with locals. Moreover, there is a bunch of activities proposed by the school, so you can discover the city, etc.
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!
Hutong School gave me the opportunity to meet other students from all over the world and help adapt to Chinese culture. The events are always fun and a great way to meet other students, as well as seeing different parts of the city. Hutong School is really flexible with the class schedules, so you never miss out on fun activities!
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!
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…
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! …
Hutong School gave me the opportunity to combine my internship in Shanghai together with studying Mandarin in the evenings. Classes are small (4 people), which means the teacher has the ability to give special attention to each individual and you practice a lot. Plus, cultural activities and trips gave me the chance to travel!
Hutong School included language/cultural barrier assistance 24/7, and exposed me to a new culture, great cultural activities, a new language, amazing people. I took the Chinese intensive course and found it to be more effective than any other Chinese language program I have encountered. The teachers are very good, professional and friendly…
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.
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.
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 skill-full and experienced both at teaching Chinese and adjusting to student and class needs. I was amazed at my progress after only one month!
