Look at what students say about Hutong School. Over 5000 participants welcomed in China
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.
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 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.
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…
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…
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.
Just kidding! His Chinese is already really impressive. But Mark, you're always welcome if you want to practice those tones ?
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!
I really enjoyed my experience with Hutong School in Shanghai. More than a simple Chinese course, here you can experiment the language with the help of very professional tutors, participate in many activities and meet many nice people from all around the world!
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!
I spent my vacations in Hutong School and that was the best decision I have ever made! I had been studying Chinese for the past year and I realized that taking classes in Hutong is definitely a different quality. The best teachers, methods and cultural activities anyone can find. I was able to skip one level when I went back to my country and I am looking forward to visiting Hutong School’s other locations!
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!
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.
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.
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.
