Life Before Q Language: A Journey of Slow Progress & Frustration

Imagine spending years trying to master Mandarin, investing time and money in various language programs, only to find yourself stuck in a frustrating cycle of slow progress and forgotten vocabulary. This depicts Liane’s reality before joining Q Language: she had experienced the ups and downs of Mandarin learning but never quite reached the level of proficiency desired.

Seeking the Right Solution: The Quest for Effective Learning

Frustrated but determined, our Liane embarked on a mission to find the ideal language school in Hong Kong. The search was about affordability and finding a program that understood the unique challenges of learning Mandarin. After exploring various options, the student stumbled upon Q Language and decided that our school resonated closely with her needs.

Q Language: More Than Just Affordable

The program’s affordability drove the decision to join the Mandarin Small Group classes at Q LANGUAGE. Liane discovered that the cost was significantly lower than other language schools in Hong Kong. What’s more, it included all the necessary materials. This financial accessibility was a game-changer, making language learning more inclusive and appealing.

Breaking Barriers in a Small Group Setting

The small group setting at Q LANGUAGE proved to be a critical factor in Liane’s success. The cosy atmosphere encouraged active participation, unlike larger classes where asking questions might feel intimidating. The pace of the lessons was just right, challenging enough to stimulate growth but not so fast that it became overwhelming.

Intensive Mandarin Course: A Transformative Experience

Opting for the Intensive Mandarin Course, Liane dedicated three hours daily to Mandarin learning. This format allowed for a perfect balance: immersing in the language during class and having the rest of the day to digest and practice. The result? A significant increase in vocabulary without the dreaded feeling of being overloaded.

Incremental Learning for Long-Term Retention

One of the standout features of Q Language’s approach is the incremental learning structure. Each lesson built upon the previous one, reinforcing previously learned words and preventing them from fading into oblivion. It wasn’t just about acquiring knowledge but about retaining and applying it in real-life situations.

From Struggling to Flourishing: A Remarkable Transformation

Despite having studied Mandarin for years before joining Q Language, Liane reported a level of progress never previously achieved.

“I had studied Mandarin for a number of years before taking this course but I’ve never learnt as much as I did during this course.”

The knowledge gained in the intensive course wasn’t just fleeting – it stuck! Exploration of Chinese characters, their structures, and their practical everyday application contributed to a comprehensive and lasting understanding.

Unexpected Benefits: Navigating the HSK Exam & Teacher Approval

While initially not planning to take the HSK exam, Liane found unexpected value in understanding the exam style and gauging their proficiency.  (The HSK – Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi – test is China’s only official test of Chinese language proficiency for non-native speakers.)

“I wasn’t planning to take the exam, but it was really useful for me to see the exam style and gauge whereabouts I was.”

As a trained teacher herself, she held high standards for teaching styles and was pleasantly surprised to find both her Mandarin teachers exceeding expectations. The open and friendly atmosphere in the classroom, coupled with teachers’ willingness to address questions beyond the course material, made the lessons not only educational but also highly enjoyable.

A Heartfelt Recommendation:
Q Language Welcomes All

Ultimately, Liane’s experience at Q Language went beyond mere satisfaction – it was an absolute joy.

“To say I found the lessons extremely enjoyable is an understatement.”

The lessons were not just about learning a language; they were about building a community, breaking down barriers, and fostering an environment where anyone could thrive, regardless of their proficiency level. As Liane passionately recommends, Q Language is the go-to choice for Mandarin learners at any stage of their language journey.

“I highly recommend Q LANGUAGE to anyone, no matter what level you are at. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.”
