Proven Track Record

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)
