Mandarin Chinese · Online

A great Teacher! Her lesson plans are more in depth than any class I’ve had in the past. Along with basic Mandarin I’m learning the cultural exchange which improves my understanding of the language. She is also very punctual and reliable which is something I look for since I’m a very busy person. CiSong is a nice and confronting person which makes practicing speaking Mandarin less stressful. I definitely recommend CiSong as a teacher and I think she works well with all age groups.
