MandaLingua is opening its doors to provide practical Chinese Language classes to international students of all backgrounds, ages and levels of ability. Based in Shanghai, MandaLingua offers a unique approach combining intensive language classes with memorable real life experience.

“We feel that the key to effective language learning is to have courses closely fit the needs of individual students,” says Imo Homfeld, Sales and Marketing Manager, and Co-Owner.

MandaLingua is proud to announce the opening of its Chinese Language school in downtown Shanghai. The school will feature customized courses that emphasize practical communication in classroom, workplace, and street level environments. Students will have the opportunity to learn and communicate in Chinese while experiencing life in the vibrant city of Shanghai.

The core program includes personalized, total-immersion learning experiences that can last anywhere from 1 week to 12 months. Cultural and recreational excursions are part of the program, and students will be encouraged to use their language skills in a wide variety of settings. The school provides highly customized programs which could include specialized language instruction, or work/study lessons combined with internships at Chinese and international companies. Classes are taught by a team of experienced, certified Chinese language instructors.

“We feel that the key to effective language learning is to have courses closely fit the needs of individual students,” said Imo Homfeld, Sales and Marketing Manager, and Co-Owner. “At MandaLingua, students are given individual attention to their unique needs and situations.” Classes can be taken as part of a full time intensive course, or they can be arranged at night or on weekends to accommodate those already in Shanghai. Specialized enrichment courses that focus on writing, pronunciation, or grammar are also available, as are private lessons, group lessons, and corporate training classes.

“As a long-time Chinese language student from Switzerland, with experience at many schools and universities across China, I have seen a great need to modernize the standard model of language instruction, and that is the reason I founded MandaLingua,” said Daniele Bardaro, Managing Director. MandaLingua classes have been designed with a clear standardized teaching and learning methodology, and conform to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Classes are also aligned with the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). Class sizes are small, with a maximum of eight students per class. All textbooks and teaching materials have been developed internally, especially for use in MandaLingua classes.

The MandaLingua campus is located on People’s Square, in the heart of downtown Shanghai. Facilities include 13 brand new classrooms and a coffee/lounge area with free internet access. The school can provide living accommodation for students, as well as help with obtaining a Chinese visa.
