Student Testimonial

"Combined with the beautiful campus, International setting of Shanghai, and your own determination, Donghua is the best place to call home whilst you study. The passion from the teachers is matched only by their teaching ability, tailoring the speed of the class to your needs. Using class discussions, role-plays, and activities (including day trips!), the teachers use class time wisely, to maximize your learning experience. Coming to Donghua has been life-changing and I am very proud to say I learned Chinese in the heart of Shanghai." - Liam Jake, Lambert (British)
