Going to That's Mandarin Summer Camp was a decision I will not regret. It was my first experience abroad without my family, and the first time I went to an summer camp. Despite the fact that there were not too many students, it really was an amazing experience, I really liked everything here. The teachers were very nice, and the program very chill. For instance if we could chose whether or not to go out for food, or to order, we could ask to go to certain places and it would be taken to consideration... But that did not mean that we only rested without learning. The lessons were very intense and we learned a lot in each on of them. Not only did it improve my vocabulary, but the dialogues we had with the teachers and the other students helped me a lot with the sentence structures, the pronunciation of words... I really liked how there was a balance between learning the actual language and learning about the culture and visiting places. This year I had chosen to participate to the program in which we had excursions ( museums, Forbidden city...) or cultural activities (such as painting masks, writing poems, making dumplings...) every morning, then 3 lessons in the afternoon, instead of the one in which we have 6 lessons a day and only participate to the excursions on the weekends. I strongly recommend this one if it is your first time to China because it allows you to discover a little bit more the city of Beijing. In other words, if you are thinking about coming here, don't hesitate I believe you won't regret it.

In my opinion, That's Mandarin Summer Camp is a very effective and fun way to learn Mandarin not only because the environnment encourages you to speak and understand Mandarin, but because of the intensive yet fun classes. Personally, I found the school housing to be very accomodating from the building itself, to the people in it. Not only does this summer camp allow you to largely improve your Mandarin skills, but it also helps you get accustomed to the Chinese culture by offering trips to famous sights around China and also taking students to do everyday things such as taking the subway and asking for things in Mandarin. This camp is also very aware and accomodating to any issues a student may have and are always here to tend to your needs. I was personally so surprised as to how much Mandarin I would learn in so little time!

I had so much fun at this summer camp. I am 16 and started studying Chinese a year and a half ago, but before coming here I wasn't really able to use grammar properly. All my lessons have helped me improve so much, in only two weeks I think that my speaking, listening and writing have improved, especially my listening as the teachers try to speak Chinese as much as they can. We went on a lot of cool trips, for example to the Great Wall and the Art District in Beijing. We also went out often for food which was always really good. Our teachers have all been really kind and supportive, and the small classes are perfect as it means you are always involved in the lessons. Living at the school was such a good choice, because I got to know my friends at teachers really well.

I really recommend this camp to anyone who is studying or thinking of studying Chinese. I was only here for two weeks, and would definitely stay for longer if could. Beijing is a really cool city, and it was great to feel so independent.

The That's Mandarin Website shouldn't be the one to choose what the kids learn. The kids should input more into what they want to learn. Then it would make the learning experience more fun for the kids and they will have more fun. The future participants should know that when they come to the That's Mandarin Building, they can make friends and be safe. oh yeah, I almost forgot the food is great 70 % of the time.

How can this program be improved?
Teaching kids what they want to learn not what the website has planned for them.
And to learn deeper about important words and phrases.

"I recommend it to everyone, it is an unforgettable experience, the staff is amazing, they give a spectacular welcome and the classes are super fun. One learns too much in a short time, I arrived here without knowing almost nothing but the basics and in just one month I learned many things. The excursions and the cultural classes are fascinating, you enjoy yourself and you learn too much in Mandarin as in English. Classes are given in such a way that you no longer have to study at night because you get out of there with everything cleared up and everything memorized. One gets unforgettable memories because we have the chance to share with people from all over the world. From here I do not leave alone knowing much mandarin also with memories that wherever I go I always enter them in my heart."

Se lo recomiendo a todo el mundo, es una experiencia inorvidable, el personal es asombroso, dan una acogida espectacular y las clases son super divertidas. Uno aprende demasiado en poco tiempo, llegue aqui sin saber casi nada solamente lo basico y en solo un mes aprendi muchas cosa. La excursiones y las clases culturales son facinantes, se disfruta y se aprende demasiado tanto en Mandarin como en Ingles. Las clases las dan de forma tal que ya no hay que estudiar en las noches porque uno sale de ahi con todo aclarado y todo memorizado. Uno se lleva recuerdos inorvidables ya que tenemos el chance de compartir con personas de todo el mundo. De aqui no me voy solo sabiendo mucho mandarin tambien con recuerdos que donde quiera que yo vaya siempre los entre en el corazon.
