"eChineseLearning has helped me learn Mandarin easily and at my own pace. Both teachers and the support team have worked with me during the past two years. I worked with my one primary teacher and also four secondary teachers, all of whom have been wonderful and kept an eye on my progress and needs. The support team helps a lot as well in getting started and using the online environment. As an academic faculty member and researcher for over 30 years, I was very careful during my search for and selection of an instructional program to help me learn Mandarin. I found the one-to-one instruction using a Skype environment to provide a direct and important presence by the faculty members. I will continue to take Mandarin classes with eChineseLearning until I am fluent and can easily travel and work in China."

"Simply put, eChineseLearning is in a league of its own. No other program on the market can equal it for depth or value. Students avoid the often stale environment of endless repetition and worksheets. Every class is a lively experience with a native speaker reinforcing students' grammar, introducing colloquialisms and offering encouragement exactly when it's needed. I feel this has been one of the best investments of my life."

"eChineseLearning.com has been one of the best things I've done this year. Both scheduling classes and having the decision on what to learn are (both) very flexible, so I can learn at my own pace and focus on my problem areas. Since I often find myself in China for work, my teacher has been showing me phrases specific to my industry, so I can usually immediately put what I've learnt to the test."
- Eric, New York, United States

"I can really say that eChineseLearning is one of the best for learning Chinese and its one-to-one lessons are very useful. Chinese (汉语) is not difficult to learn: the grammar is very simple compared to English and incomparably simple when compared to languages like German. The difficulty, in my opinion is the pronunciation, but I found this problem solvable with the one-to-one lessons."
- Laurentiu Radu, Brasov, Romania

"I would like to express my great satisfaction with ECL(eChineseLearning) course. In my third month I am already able to construct small sentences and establish simple conversations in my current business travel to Taiwan. Through this course I realized that it is really possible to learn Chinese. Despite the difficulty, I am enjoying the learning process provided by your didactical methodology. I would like also to attest competence of ECL teachers, in particular of my primary teacher Lea. I feel ECL teachers very committed with my learning process. Congratulations. Keep up the outstanding performance."

"I admit I was very nervous (in) that first lesson. However, the instructor with patience and encouragement very quickly put me at ease, and we had a very productive session. At the end of 50 minutes, I really felt I had learned a lot…I immediately liked my instructor and she has been a good friend as well as a teacher. She is patient, encouraging, understanding, and humorous – all the qualities of an excellent teacher!"
- Mike Ackermann, Canada

"I've been using eChineseLearning with my private teacher, Mary, for over a year and a half. I really didn't think I could learn Chinese – I'm not Chinese, none of my in-laws are Chinese, I'm not young and not even good at languages - how could I possibly learn a language as complex as Chinese? With Mary's creative and patient instruction I can speak more than I dreamed possible. Your rates help make this dream possible and the scheduler makes it convenient with my constantly changing schedule of a professional and homemaker. Many thanks for your service."

"I have studied Chinese with Candice for one year now. I cannot recommend Candice highly enough. She is an excellent teacher, and she is very patient, and understanding. You are lucky to have her, cherish her - she adds a lot of value to your business, and to the people lucky enough to learn with her. I will always remember her, my first teacher of Chinese :) Thank you for everything Candice."

"I want to share with you the wonderful news - I have just passed the HSK test (intermediate level)! I had taken HSK test twice but still couldn't pass the test. Then my classmate recommended (eChineseLearning's) HSK test prep course. At first, I was unsure about this online teaching method. But now I have to say this really worked! Debbie, you are the best!"

I would like to thank you all for your help this last year and it was a pleasure in meeting all my teachers and my friends Regina and Tony and my teacher Sharon. I will never forget my trip to Beijing in June and hopefully it won't be my last. Thank you for all your help and support and patience. So I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I will see you all next year for another year of learning Chinese. Thank you and best wishes!"

"I have taken many language classes in the past (Spanish, French, and even some Mandarin) and I can honestly say that Tina is the best language teacher I have ever had. She is very patient, understands my learning pace, and great at making me practice what I have studied. I am very impressed with her professionalism and her amazing ability to teach."

She is very professional. And her interactive Chinese class is very much enjoyable. In addition to this, all the school system is set up well."

"I think you all do very well! Your delivery method is flawless and my teacher Margaret is great, and very patient with me. I will continue taking lessons with eChineseLearning for the foreseeable future! I really appreciate the opportunity to maintain my Chinese skills at an affordable cost-this is very important, because I'll be taking Chinese lessons regularly for a very long time-and with such high-quality teaching. I was at a loss as to what to do until I found you because private tutors here are too expensive for what they offer, and their schedules are hard to deal with. You are both affordable and convenient. I can't say enough good things about my lessons."
- Michael Hilton, a financial planner in an investment bank in the U.S.
Aug. 12, 2012
"I enjoy the service very much. All of the teachers (Monica, Andy, May), without exception, have been patient, thorough and most importantly have made learning Chinese fun and interesting. Similarly, I would and, in fact, do recommend your service to others. Thank you for allowing me to rate your service and provide you with feedback. I will look forward to continuing my studies at your school."

"The best thing I like your service is that I can arrange lessons that fit my schedule, which can be hectic at times. And also I don't have to drive to schools. I can learn mandarin at home, in my office and pretty much wherever I want. I look forward to every class!"

"I have learned Chinese for several years. My Chinese was fine for business emails and phone calls. But leading presentations and negotiations is another story. So I really needed to focus on that. I chose eChineseLearning because a friend of mine is using your service and she loved it. My own experience has exceeded my expectations. Also, I was able to take lessons even while I was traveling. It is so convenient and ensures that there would be no interruption of my learning."
- Philip Gutierrez, New York City

"I wanted to learn Chinese so that I can have a better chance in career advancement. I had some basic knowledge of Chinese, but my pronunciation was poor. After 4 months of live lessons at eChineseLearning , my pronunciation has improved tremendously. And recently I got a dream job in the marketing department of a big international company! Thank you!"
- Monica Hughes, Miami, Florida
May. 17, 2007
"I enjoy every class and I feel very good about the progress I have made. It is a thousand times better than learning from a CD. And it is much better than learning at a university here. At the university, the class goes as fast as the teacher wants. But your classes are better, they go at my pace. So I feel I am really learning."
- Edward Adam Davis, Orlando, Florida
Mar. 28, 2007
"This is an extremely good way to learn Chinese online. The teachers are very well-qualified, the scheduling is extremely flexible, and the price is unbelievably cheap - a small fraction for what you would ordinarily have to pay in the US for such high quality one-to-one tutoring. I am recommending it to all of my students."

- Joanna, Dallas, Texas, U.S.

Overall, eChineseLearning has helped me greatly and I look forward to future classes."
- Cuthbert Chow, Hong Kong

I have to tell you that after 3 months, his spoken Chinese has become the best among his classmates in his junior high school—that is what his Chinese teacher told me this afternoon. I am so excited, so was my son! I really appreciate for what you have done!"

Teachers here are all very professional and experienced. We're learning not only the language but also the culture. I highly recommend eChineseLearning for anyone, whether in our circumstance or those just trying to learn this challenging language."
- Jeff Nelson, Maryland, U.S.
Jan. 14, 2013
"One of the key criteria when it comes to choose a good Chinese tutor is the tutor's ability of making the learning experience fun and keeping my children interested in learning the language. My children have been learning Chinese with Stephanie for over 2 years and have not only been making steady progress, but also maintained high level of interest in learning Chinese. Stephanie has always been very patient, encouraging and supportive towards my children. She has great ability to tailor the lessons and teaching to suit my children's level and learning ability. The student support team is also very helpful and has always responded to our queries promptly. We would recommend eChineseLearning to anyone who would like to learn Chinese as a second language."
