Look at what students say about Hutong School. Over 5000 participants welcomed in China
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!
Excellent reception with 24h service for any issue or language problem that could arise. My Chinese teacher was very dedicated and skilled. I learned more in my five weeks in Shanghai than I had learnt two years studying at home.
Hutong School included language/cultural barrier assistance 24/7, and exposed me to a new culture, great cultural activities, a new language, amazing people. I took the Chinese intensive course and found it to be more effective than any other Chinese language program I have encountered. The teachers are very good, professional and friendly…
I completed a 3-month intensive language course, which greatly improved my Chinese language capability. I appreciate the opportunity to have experienced the Chinese culture first-hand, as well as, the opportunity to make lifelong friendships with my classmates, teachers and the staff. Hutong School provided me with a safe and comfortable residence in which to stay. The staff was always willing and happy to help me with anything that I needed.
I ended up doing an internship in Beijing totally randomly. I didn't know a thing about China, or the working conditions there, or even how to say Hi in Chinese. Well, Hutong School destroyed all my fears, crashed the doubts you can have when moving in another country, and welcomed me as part of a big family.
There is a level of comfort and amiable atmosphere at Hutong School that is very contagious. Only four months in Shanghai and I have made incredible friends, learned more about myself as a person than I ever could in my own country, and I never thought I would enjoy studying Chinese Mandarin this much. Hutong School definitely helped me to find comfort out of my comfort zone!
The staff at Hutong School were incredibly helpful and flexible in organizing 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 really enjoyed my experience with Hutong School in Shanghai. More than a simple Chinese course, here you can experiment the language with the help of very professional tutors, participate in many activities and meet many nice people from all around the world!
I spent my vacations in Hutong School and that was the best decision I have ever made! I had been studying Chinese for the past year and I realized that taking classes in Hutong is definitely a different quality. The best teachers, methods and cultural activities anyone can find. I was able to skip one level when I went back to my country and I am looking forward to visiting Hutong School’s other locations!
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!
Just kidding! His Chinese is already really impressive. But Mark, you're always welcome if you want to practice those tones ?
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!
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! …
A great organization that takes good care of you. From day one I was met with open arms by the Hutong School staff, which made the transition easy. They provided an important social structure and offered plenty of social events throughout my stay. Whether you’re an experienced traveller, or spending your first time abroad, Hutong School provides the much needed comfort, and administrative support, that helps you to solely focus on your stay abroad. My stay in Shanghai left me as a more experienced employee, and most importantly a happier person.
My time in Beijing with Hutong School was incredible! The staff are extremely helpful and friendly! The whole team made my stay very easy – starting from airport pick-up, accommodation, registration and public transport card. The teaching hours were flexible and matched perfectly my working hours.To sum it up: a great experience!
