Marius Holzer, Switzerland - MBA Graduate from Insead University
As a Mandarin beginner with only a short time available to start to study a new language I was looking for an
intensive program that adapts to my needs and interests. I found PRC in the internet. I liked their offer and after
some email exchanges with a friendly contact I enrolled in a one-on-one tuition (six weeks, four hours a day).
It turned out to be the best possible choice for me. The quality of the teaching was beyond my expectations and
I'm fully satisfied with my home stay arrangement. Today, after only six weeks of studying Mandarin I leave
Beijing with the ability of reading and writing about 800 characters and I'm able t have a simple conversation
in a day-to-day context. (Aug 12, 2006)
The Private 1-On-1 Mandarin Chinese language programs cater to proficiency levels from total beginner to advance.
To enroll for our programs, applicants must be:
- 18 years old or above
- In good health
- Students younger than 18 years old may also be accepted. Please
contact PRC Study at email@example.com.
