Overview
Shanghai City
Shanghai is the “New York” of China, a city for people who love cities - they love the pace, the intensity, the density, the constant feeling of motion and the sensory overload. If you like Shanghai, it's because you're attuned into this frenetic vibe that it exudes - the swirl of stores and restaurants and people that collide on every corner you can see. Shanghai is the most chosen destination for language students, a great place not only for learning Chinese, but also for exciting city life. It will maximize your experience by offering more possibilities to enjoy beauty, history and lifestyle or career and business opportunities. To learn and study Mandarin Chinese in China, probably there is no better choice than Shanghai.
Chinese course
Founded in 2001, MandarinRocks is an accredited Chinese language school in Shanghai that has over 10 years of experience providing Mandarin training for thousands of foreign students and professionals and is among the top rated Chinese language schools in China.
The Combined General Chinese courses are the classic MandarinRocks programs. You will work on every language skill plus receive personalized instruction with 5 or 10 additional individual lessons per week. The General Chinese program is available at all 7 levels to make sure you’re placed exactly where you should be.

Your decision entirely depends on your needs and desires. If you want more free time when studying abroad, then General Chinese 20 program allows a light schedule.

If you want to purely focus on Mandarin learning and reach linguistic maximum in a short time, opt for the General Chinese 30 and get extra practice in the most important communication skills (reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and speaking skills), or take the Individual General Chinese 20 which offers 4 individual lessons per day, another great option.

Our ‘star’ programs, Combined General Chinese 20+5 or 20+10, will lead you to make the most of your time in Shanghai. You’ll be immersed in 4 group lessons and 1 or 2 individual lessons per day and put these new skills to use every day when you step outside the classroom. Our students are always surprised by how fast they learn with the combined courses – it’s our most popular program, and for good reason.
