Testimonials from previous students of JOY--Learn  to speak Chinese:

"After moving to China with my family, I tried many types of books, tapes, and DVD training courses to learn Mandarin Chinese. None of these worked very effectively. Finally, after some nice recommendations from friends, both my wife and I tried the JOY Chinese Language Training method that uses the book called 'JOY Chinese in 3 Months'. Wow, what a difference! "

"This is a very, very practical course together with an extremely effective teaching method that gives you the basics and gets you talking Mandarin after only a couple of lessons. "

"When I first came to Chinese in 2005, nearly not a single word I could speak, except “ni hao” and “xie xie”. Then I started to learn Chinese, using “JOY Chinese in 3 Months—Chinese Express”. This book is user-friendly, easy to understand and practical. After finishing this book, I believe you will be able to speak Chinese with local people correctly."

"They concentrate on the vocabulary and sentences that you need to get by in the day-to-day routine. The course is taught in Mandarin, so you learn to listen and speak at the same time. Now my children are also taking the course, while my husband and I have moved on to the second level, but using the same effective teaching method."

"I would highly recommend this school and course to everyone that needs to learn Mandarin in a hurry. This gets you to basic communication survival in China in a very short period of time - you will be crawling after day two, walking after day five, and running full speed ahead after week two. Go for it!"

Hey Carson, I’m flying to Nepal today. I just want to say, you have been a great help during my first months in China. I really liked the classes with you, and I appreciate all the tips and contacts you shared with me .Without you my whole China experience would have not been the same! I am sure it won’t be my last time here. If you ever need a favor or anything I can help you with. Please feel free to contact me.
