I have been taking HSK classes with New Concept Mandarin for almost 2 years. I passed HSK5 after intensive practice in all areas required to pass the exam. During that time, my Mandarin also improved tremendously, especially in the listening and writing areas. In addition, I was able to better appreciate certain aspects of Chinese culture and thinking. Given the excellent teaching, I have decided to prepare for HSK6 at the same school.

I was initially a bit apprehensive regarding the cost of the course, however New Concept Mandarin is the absolute best language course I've ever taken and you truly get what you pay for. The learning approach used by the instructors coupled with the web material blends things in such a way that it stays with me in a permanent way. For myself, I was unfortunately not able to attend most of the 2nd level course and could not progress to the 3rd level. NCM contacted me after 1 year and I re-enrolled in the 2nd level course. I was amazed how much I could remember after that 1 year as I picked up right where I left off! As a middle aged person in a country where it is difficult to practice Mandarin, I found this quite remarkable and a testament to the NCM program. My goal is eventual Chinese language certification and fluency and I feel NCM is essential to allowing me to reach it.
--- Chris de Britain
Attending class with New Concept Mandarin was an absolute joy. Classes were highly engaging and went beyond just learning the words or phrases, but expanded on the origins of the sayings and conventions used in order to give the right context and understanding. There was also a balance between reading and conversational exercises that ensured the lessons were holistic enough.
--- Roy & Amanda
I enjoyed Chinese learning with New Concept Mandarin Singapore. The Social level 1 group class benefited myself alot and I am now able to read and write and speak better Mandarin.
-- Eliz Chua
When I was told to write a testimonial for my Mandarin learning at NCM, I am more than happy to do so. The flexible Chinese class schedule enable me to manage between work and Chinese Language learning. My trainer understands my Chinese learning style and love to include new relevant topics to keep my interest in Mandarin lessons on-going. I want to recommend NCM to everyone who has not gotten any quality Mandarin training before.
-- Josh Tromans
I really enjoyed the course, the content had everything you need to get started and learn the basics in Mandarin. The teacher was excellent, speaks perfect English (and Chinese obviously!) and takes their time to help each of the group learn. The lessons cover a wise range of useful conversation skills, various vocabulary and lots of real life examples of how and where to use them. You are given worksheets and a series of recordings to listen to the pronunciations which helps you week by week. I would definitely recommend this course to any beginner who wants to learn Mandarin.
-- Matthew Lee
The lessons are really interesting as the teacher uses a lot of materials. This makes learning more interesting and a way less boring.

I even started learning how to read and write which was not in my objectives at the beginning, but which I found now a must to get to understand this complex language.
-- Roberto Martinoni
The Mandarin course has been very useful for me and gave me a lot of self-confidence in speaking Mandarin language . Our teacher showed a huge amount of patience and commitment to guide us through the Chinese course at a good pace. The content was clear, the Mandarin lessons are engaging and we also had a lot of fun I will recommend everyone to join NCM for this fun and easy language!
-- Marta Fernandez Ferrero
Thank you our trainer Lynn and New Concept Mandarin for help us to arrange this Social 1 group class. The Mandarin study we have covered includes reading and writing mandarin article and surely will recommend this to our friends.
-- Tania Han
I am quite happy with my experience with New Concept Mandarin. I have been studying with them for almost 2 years now and I really feeling very comfortable with Mandarin abilities.

I am able to converse in Mandarin for a variety of day to day activities for work and personal areas. The teachers and coursework were most helpful in not only developing my proficiency in Mandarin, but my confidence as well.

I highly recommend NCM to anyone learning Mandarin.

I wanted to share hereby my feedback on this first series of Mandarin courses with New Concept Mandarin Singapore.
I've found both the Chinese class methodology and the input of my mandarin teacher very helpful in gaining understanding of the most frequent situations of the daily life. I found particularly helpful to be able to interact on any kind of topic and dive deeper into that ones that are the most relevant to me.
The stream of work and rythm is compelling and encouraging.
I really look forward to pursuing these courses with Mandarin Social Level 2.
-- Isabelle
I really enjoyed my classes at New Concept Mandarin, in particular with our teacher Lynn. I was looking for a basic introductory class and I looked around at quite a few different options – including other courses as well as private tutors. However, I am really glad I went with New Concept Mandarin. The classes were great – not only did we cover the basics of vocabulary, tones and pronunciation, but the class setting really helped they dynamics of learning and made it a lot more fun. It also took away some of the fear and issues around learning a new language. Lynn was very helpful in this respect – not only engaging us to speak more but also taking the time to answer all of our questions. She even met with us on her own time to meet us for a 'group' dinner and take us on a tour of Chinatown, which was really great of here and an excellent learning experience. Overall, I felt the classes were at the right pace and covered the right material, as well as a good value for money. Lynn was a great teacher and would definitely recommend her to anyone, from beginner to more advanced students just looking to improve or learn more.

I took a survival level 1 in NCM. I really enjoyed, It was a great

course and a great experience. The subject was different every class,

It came with audio and worksheet as well. So, i could practice at home..

And thanks to my teacher, Lynn Li. I am able to speak and understand chinese now. She is very patient in explaining and answering all our questions. I also have more understanding in chinese culture. Even though, I am not able to continue to the next level. I will keep in practicing and learning. Thank you NCM and Ms. Lynn Li!

Evelyn-- Thank you very much

-- Evelyn Tjahjono

The learning method of New Concept Mandarin is very practical. After Survival Level 1 we are already able to have basic communication in practical situations. Our teacher Jean is very fun to be with and we enjoy the classes very much.

We recommend this course to all other expatriates in Singapore to learn Mandarin in an effective and pleasant way.

-- Petteri & Anita Kostermaa

I started Mandarin 1 year and a half ago not knowing where I was embarking for, but conscious that it would demand a serious effort. I found within New Concept Mandarin a very supportive environment, and, thanks to their teaching, a continuous motive of interest in learning not only mandarin but also the whole chinese culture filtering from every words and characters. The pedagogy is subtle, the progression makes you feel you are really making progress. I particularly enjoyed the always cheerful and so smart way our Lao Shi, Mina, enlivens the language and organize our weekly games with new words and sentences.

-- Bertrand

The Business Mandarin (Advance) offered by New Concept Mandarin appealed to me because it offered flexibility that allowed me to tailor the course to suit my specific learning needs. My tuitor Ms Zheng was not only effectively bilingual in English and Chinese, she was also very patient in accommodating my very tight work schedule, allowing me to complete the entire course in a short span of 2 months, just in time for me to leave on my work stint in China.

-- Christina Choh

I am very satisfied with the ongoing courses.

The strong points of this teaching system are the good materials that are provided, these are adapted to foreigners trying to understand and learn a very alien language, and the personalized teaching one-on-one. This helps a lot.

My trainer, Mina Zheng min, individual strong attributes are: very punctual service, good knowledge of Chinese language and culture (it is important that we learn more also about the culture, so this is very helpful), personalized attention. She answered all questions very appropriately, good context placement of what we learn, her flexibility in scheduling classes, a good sense of humor to make it lighter. Her recommendable patience to teach wiaguoren like myself who seem to learn with great difficulty.

It is a pleasure working with Mina and NCM and I am looking forward to a lot more.

-- Alain

During my internship in Singapore I had the chance to start learning Mandarin at NCM and enjoyed it very much.

I think it’s always a good way of learning a new language when it takes place in a small group like our group of only 7 people, because then the teacher can structure the classes better according to the individuals needs.

The repetition exercises in every lesson were very beneficial.

With these exercises we could repeat the last lesson and keep the words and expressions in mind easier.

I believe that it is also very important that the clients talk and practice a lot in class and we always held a lot of conversations and read texts out loud.

The classes were well-structured and full of useful terms for everyday life and working life.

In addition our teacher was prepared completely for every class and very patient with us.

It was always fun to learn Mandarin with her!

So thank you very much for an outstanding experience by teaching me Mandarin!

-- Sarah Loeschmann

We have had a very good experience with “New Concept Mandarin” as we had an excellent teacher, good study materials and a small group of students. We were nurtured from absolute ignorance in mandarin to a survival level in a very short time and most of all, we had good fun during our classes. We definitely can recommend “New Concept Mandarin” to anyone.

-- Petra Pohorska

It was forty years ago that I have been taught Chinese as a second language in school. Without interest or paying much attention Chinese was boring and a struggle just for a grade.

How did I do?

It is forty years after and I am fondly thinking of learning Chinese all over again. A desire such that after 3 attempts over 2 years to find a suitable tutor or institution that can help me to master Mandarin, I chance upon New Concept Mandarin.

My experience with New Concept Mandarin is that of laughter in the class coming from mistakes, curiosity, queries, stories and the likes while learning. I found the textbooks format easy to learn and the teacher made the learning enjoyable. This gave me comfort and confidence in learning so much so I am always looking eagerly to the next lesson.

Teachers are caring, trained, experienced professionals.

Another plus factor for me is the flexible time and place for learning and customization to suit my convenience in various situations.

Much can be gained and of course much depends on oneself, if to learn faster or slower at different levels, at one’s own comfort zone.

-- Jerry Soh

New Concept private lessons are ideal for my busy and ever changing schedule.

The lessons were arranged to fit into my diary and the times could vary from week to week. They were also held in my office which saved travel time. It could not have been more convenient.

My teacher was very patient and understanding and catered the course to my needs and ability. She taught me not only the language, but also many cultural Chinese aspects.

I find the lessons engaging and productive. I highly recommend New Concept Mandarin to anyone wanting to embark upon learning this fascinating language.

-- Simon Meers

I have been studying at NCM in Singapore for 4 months now, taking one-to-one classes once or twice a week depending on my schedule.

I like NCM for many reasons, but here are some of them:

- The teachers are both excellent and enthusiastic with a good sense of humor

- As a one-to-one student I can chose when to study with great flexibility

- The textbooks are full of relevant and useful topics. The teachers are willing to incorporate extra topics outside the scope of the textbook

- NCM has enabled me to reach an intermediate level from scratch in a relatively short time

- The school is conveniently located and has comfortable classrooms

If you are serious about improving your Mandarin, I would certainly recommend NCM to you.
