That’s Mandarin Chinese Language School

Shanghai Living

Updated on:

That’s Mandarin Chinese Language School was founded in 2005. We provide Chinese language classes both online and offline, in Shanghai and Beijing, China. Our classes are taught using an in-house built learning platform, Nihaocafe, which lets students learn Mandarin Chinese through story-telling. On top of this, Nihaocafe will let you revisit old lessons, class notes and even has an in-built scheduling system.

But wait, there’s more! We provide all of our students with our own ‘Chinese Link Words’ book, to make learning Chinese both more fun as well as easier.

Since 2005

Founded in 2005, That’s Mandarin has had several campuses across Shanghai, as well as Beijing. Currently, we find ourselves on 881 Wuding Rd, surrounded by restaurants and bars, and within walking distance of Jing’an Temple.

We started by creating our online learning platform ‘Mandarin Café’ in 2010, which has now evolved into Nihaocafe.

Since 2005, we have taught over 50,000+ students, and held 13 years of Chinese Summer Camp, and 11 years of school trips!

With the ever-increasing globalization of China, we believe Mandarin Chinese will follow hand-in-hand. Chinese will never not be important, and as such we are very positive about the future.

Nihao cafe

With our online learning platform ‘Nihaocafe’, we are able to teach Chinese to anyone in the world. More and more students are joining us every day, and we are having tons of fun teaching. Here is what one of our online students had to say:

I like the teachers. They created a warm, friendly environment. They encouraged us to do better. Even in a group setting, I learned so much in such a short amount of time

– Sofia M.

To make our lessons better for our students, we have filmed our own series to help teach Chinese. You’ll get to experience over 60 characters played by professional actors and actresses as they show different experiences, all to help you learn Chinese better. We have even filmed in over 40 different locations to provide our students with the best content possible.

That’s Mandarin recently won That’s Shanghai LIFESTYLE AWARDS for Mandarin School of the Year. We were beyond thrilled.

We offer free trial classes online for anyone interested. You get to experience both our teachers and our online platform ‘Nihaocafe’.
