  1. Immerse Yourself: Study Immersive Mandarin with Native Chinese Tutors. Our experienced Chinese tutors specialize in efficiently teaching conversational and business Mandarin through intensive language programs in Shanghai.

  3. Explore Cultural Activities: Practice speaking Chinese during excursions to local historical sites, restaurants, markets and businesses. Our activity staff handles planning events that give context to reinforce language retention as you explore Shanghai.

  4. Utilize Language Apps and Online Resources: Make use of language learning apps and online resources to supplement your studies. Schools like GoEast Mandarin offer interactive lessons, vocabulary practice, and listening exercises that can be accessed conveniently on your smartphone or computer.

  5. Practice Regularly: Consistency is key when learning a language. Set aside dedicated time each day to practice Chinese, whether it’s reviewing vocabulary, listening to podcasts, or practicing speaking with a language partner. Regular practice will help you progress more effectively.

  6. Take Advantage of Language Schools: Enroll in reputable language schools like GoEast Mandarin that offer structured courses and experienced teachers. Language schools provide a supportive learning environment, curriculum guidance, and opportunities for cultural immersion.

Pick up your Chinese guide at a GoEast in Shanghai

Speaking some Chinese makes Shanghai much easier: you can tell the taxi driver where to go, or exactly which dish you want (no surprises).

Learning Mandarin also makes Shanghai much nicer: locals will be even nicer to you when you to speak them in their language.

And speaking some Chinese can also possibly make Shanghai safer: you can ask someone to call an ambulance (although we hope you’ll never have to).

So you can do two things. First off, you can come pick up our free twelve-page quickguide at our campus in Shanghai’s Yangpu district or in the French Concession near Shanghai Library. And secondly, you can take Mandarin classes at GoEast, of course, either in Shanghai or online.

So feel welcome to pick up a quick guide for yourself, or for your friends that may need one. And if you decide to sign up for classes, you’ll know where to find us.

The Chinese quick guide covers topics like food, greetings, animals, colors, talking to a taxi driver, ordering a restaurant, and emergencies, as well as some small talk (such as ‘You are cute!’).
