I’ve taken online classes in college and didn’t care for them. But with the change of things in the world, I had the option to either suspend my classes or move to online classes. I was hesitant at first, but I’m so happy that I chose to do online classes. The teachers are amazing. Not only are they helping you to speak the language, they are helping you learn to read and write it as well.

The online learning platform is very well set up and easy to navigate. My teacher is always on time and prepares lessons tailored to my Chinese level and my own interests.

I took some courses with them and they are really AMAZING. They sent me details about the platform on which we would have the classes and a day before our course, I log on with someone to see if the connection is working. The classes were on time and the teachers really GREAT and EXPERIENCED with international students.
