What Our Students Say


"My teacher is an amazing teacher with a lot of patience, she is very flexible in her approach and was able to cater to my specific needs, as I was a Cantonese speaker with prior knowledge of Mandarin looking to brush up my language skills. I would recommend China Unbound to any Mandarin learners of all abilities."
Laura Harrison
"My mother tongue is Cantonese and I have been living abroad for a long time. Determined to improve my Mandarin fluency, I went to China Unbound for help. My tutor’s patient, well-organised and fun to work with. She’s helped me with my pronunciations and taught me business Mandarin. I applied what I’ve learnt during my recent business trip to China and felt so much more confident in speaking Mandarin. I ‘d highly recommend China Unbound to Mandarin students at any levels."
Mazika Li
"My organisation wants to work more closely with mainland China, so I needed a one-on-one Mandarin tutor. After two years, I am very happy with my Mandarin progress. Grace is a patient and caring teacher, and helpfully also knows Cantonese. Definitely recommend!."
