I am young learner at Tenwest and really enjoy my lessons. No matter your level, the teachers always teach at level that you can follow. The teachers are very kind and break down the Chinese step by step in order for you to learn well. I have learnt so much from Tenwest and within a year I am now able to hold conversations in Chinese, thanks to my teachers.
We relocated as a family to Kunming one year ago and Tenwest has been instrumental in helping each member of the family not only progress in our language skills but also have given us cultural insight and valuable assistance in adapting to everyday life in China. The teachers are friendly and engaging. They are quickly able to establish levels of proficiency and pitch engaging lessons at just the right level. As a teacher myself, I know how vital this is.
Our family has benefited so much from Tenwest. If you are looking for a family friendly school that will progress not only yourselves but also your children in Chinese proficiency, then Tenwest is absolutely the right school for you.
I was a little apprehensive about learning Chinese full time, not being an academic person, but I have learned so much in just a few weeks. The teachers are so well skilled in aiding learning, thanks to flexibility according to individual learning styles. The school is extremely well-run, affordable, friendly and response times to emails etc. is very fast. Learning here is so good, it's an absolute pleasure.
When I was in Kunming, I studied at Tenwest language school and I was amazed at how warm and caring the staff and teachers were at Tenwest! Their passion and commitment to their students was evident in the way the teachers took time to create learning experiences that were beneficial to each unique student. Whether I was in a group class or a one on one, I always had a rich learning experience! I will definitely be going back to Kunming to continue my Chinese language studies and when I do, I will be returning to the team at Tenwest language school! See you in 2018!!
I'm a beginner student of Chinese, having studied it at school for only a year.
It was great studying in TenWest. The teachers are great, always trying new ways to capture your interest for learning. They adapt really well to your personal requests also. They are also always willing to go out of their way to help, even if it includes working off schedule.
I had a great experience and highly recommend TenWest!
