Hayden Lau George
My name is Hayden. I’m 13 years old. I studied in That’s Mandairn for 2 weeks. I feel good about my Chinese class because everyone is nice and friendly. I like my teacher Jiang laoshi very much, she always let us to be the “teacher”, so we can review and study by ourselves which is more interesting and active. I like this kind of teaching style very much. In my morning class, I can practise speaking as well as writing characters. In the afternoon, my favourite cultural activity were food and mask-making.I learned to making Tangyuan with all my schoolmates. Although I only spent two weeks in That’s Mandarin, but my Chinese has improved. I felt very happy and comfortable with all my teachers and classmates.
My name is Kyra, I’m 14 years old. I am from Canada. Last year I signed up 2 weeks Day camp with That’s Mandarin, I was very satisified with them, so this year I came back again. I think learning Chinese with other people (eg. teachers or my classmates) was very helpful and I feel that I learned a lot. Our teacher is very responsible and really professional, I like her very much. She focused on the structure of sentences and important vocabulary which can quickly help us to improve. In the summer camp;I enjoyed the field trips, afternoon activities and making new friends. I like learning Chinese along with other foreign language learners because it broadens my knowledge. Some places we went to were Yu garden、century park、watervillage etc. I like cooking class very much, this year I learned making Tangyuan. Overall, Mandarin camp was very fun and I hope I can come back again next year.
My name is Astrid and I am 14 years old. I live in Toronto,Canada. I enjoy learning Mandarin in the summer at camp with That’s Mandarin because I learn relevant material and I meet people from around the world. Last year I also came to That’s Mandarin, and during last year, I also took skype class with them because I want keep on learing Mandarin. I want to be able to communicate with people in Asia. Also I liked all my teachers in this school, my language teachers are all very kind and patient. When they takes us out for field trips, they take care of all the small kids,very responsible,and I always willing to help them to look after the small kids. I liked their traditional food-making class very much. I already learned how to make Jiaozi and desert dumplings. I was very satisified with my morning language class. I hope next year I can come back again and I hope we can have more cooking and practise classes cause I relly enjoy having those classes.
My name is Capucine, I am 14 years old. I came here with my two younger brothers. I like my Summer Camp because we not only study inside school but also go outside and I can meet a lot of other people who come from all around the world. I very much like my Chinese lesson, it’s very different from the style I learned before. Teacher will not make us just repeat the word or the text books, we need to use the words we already know to make long sentences. In That’s Mandarin I enlarge my vocabulary. The happiest thing is that I make great progress in saying long sentences. Also when we go outside in the afternoon, teachers always encourage us to speak to other Chinese people. We buy things in Chinese and finish the task the teacher gave us in Chinese. This year I only stay in Shanghai for one week, I hope next year I can come back again and stay longer to improve my Mandarin.
