About us

 

Look around. Just outside the window are Qingdao’s red roofs and skyscrapers; in the distance, Mount Fu frames the neighborhood, located in the international heart of the city. You are in the 石老人classroom (Old Stone Man, a famous Qingdao landmark) at XMandarin: clean whiteboard, Chinese calligraphy on the wall, and a ticking clock. It’s time to learn Chinese.

The two most important things in any language class are the student and the teacher. All of our teachers are chosen for experience, professionalism, and ability. We require our teachers to speak standard Putonghua (普通话, official Mandarin Chinese) and English, have at least a Bachelor’s degree and 3000 hours of teaching experience. Even in the beginner classes, at least half of the class is in Chinese, to prepare students for the sea of Chinese out there. We know our teachers are excellent… you need a great teacher to make learning Mandarin as easy, fun and smooth as possible. Meet [Y]Our Teachers,



Our students come from over 50 countries to live, play, work and study Chinese in Qingdao.  Our school has a truly international community of all kinds of learners: we have part-time language courses, intensive Chinese study courses, HSK test prep courses, business Chinese classes, and summer courses.  Diversity and flexibility are our strengths, with resources to help expatriate’s understand the Chinese social, business and political environment, as well as regulations and customs.
