Safe Excursions

That’s Mandarin Summer Camp Programs also offer local excursions such as visiting museums or traveling to a tourist attraction near Shanghai. At That’s Mandarin, safety is our priority. At least one teacher takes care of every five students during the excursion. Our teachers are all university graduates and have experience in working with children, therefore a safe and enjoyable learning experience is guaranteed.

Small Group Classes

At That’s Mandarin, kids study in small groups with an average of 6 children in one class. This allows kids to quickly improve their Chinese language skills as the teacher focuses on each child’s performance. Besides, children will also have the chance to interact with the teacher and their classmates, so that they can learn Chinese in an enjoyable way and make new friends. In contrast, in a public camp, where usually 20 – 30 kids sitting in one classroom and listen to one teacher.
