Extremely helpful. The teachers were all great, they were very very helpful and focused with my Mandarin study. They also helped me to make a good improvement, so I now think that I can get a good mark in my exam where before I took the course I would fail. Every one was very kind and always ready to help. I highly recommend New Concept Mandarin.
