Just kidding! His Chinese is already really impressive. But Mark, you’re always welcome if you want to practice those tones 😉
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 everything!
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 loved the friendly atmosphere of Hutong School and their organization and willingness to help with absolutely everything. It was in China that I decided to start my own jewellery design company once I got home. China paved the way for my future in a huge way.
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!

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!
I was very pleased with the personal method they used for finding a suitable company for my internship. First, I had a short Skype interview with the Program Manager, the day after I already had a few proposals from companies that had vacancies. The next interview was with the company I chose and one week later my internship was confirmed!
When you enter the school, you won’t find anyone who is bored, unhappy or unmotivated. Everybody – administrative staff, teachers and students – is friendly, helpful and passionate about the classes! The team’s helping hands were always there, even before any problem appeared: I was picked up from the airport and had 24/7 assistance.

When I decided to do my 3-month internship in Beijing, I was quite scared, but the staff helped me months before my arrival, taking care of everything: visa, internship company, housing, etc. My Chinese classes were taught extremely well, I had a lot of fun at the various cultural activities and I made many new friends. I had a wonderful experience!
As soon as I got off the plane I fell in love with China! Flatmates, classmates and colleagues were the best gift China could give me and thanks to them I totally immersed myself in the amazing Chinese culture! Hutong School provides for everything you need and you only have to worry about your will to enjoy China!
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.
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 took a Chinese language course at university before I went to China.

My stay in Beijing enabled me to discover a new culture and showed my ability to live by myself even in a city whose language is particularly challenging: I improved my Chinese a lot thanks to the classes! The Hutong School staff were lovely and very helpful. As for the cultural activities, they were all very well organized and interesting.
I particularly appreciated the dedication and patience of the teachers (I’m more than 70 years old, it was not so easy to get vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation into my old brain) and the time the administratives spent to help us for accommodation, planning, etc. Hutong School “boosted” me to pass HSK 3 at 74 years old!
Coming from the USA, I was extremely scared and cautious when looking into internships in China. Finding Hutong School was truly a blessing. Not only did they care for my every need, but they opened my eyes to a new world while still allowing me to feel safe and comfortable. There is no possible way I could have done it without them!
The staff at Hutong School were incredibly helpful and flexible in organising 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.
I chose Hutong School because they had a wide variety of internship offers, plus, due to my young age, it was a good feeling to know there was always someone from the staff I could contact. Hutong School introduced me to the best internship fitting my personality. I met people from all over the world, whom I call good friends now.
Thanks to Hutong School, my experience in Beijing was unforgettable. They provided me with an internship that perfectly matched my interests and education program. I could always count on Hutong School staff and was surrounded by other students who shared the same interests. Hutong School guided me through this China adventure.
