If you are looking to learn Mandarin chinese, Singapore has many options and it can get quite tedious to find the right one. Search “Learn Mandarin in Singapore” on google and you will find many Mandarin schools. Most schools offer a mix of both speaking and writing. Here at Yi Mandarin, we decided early on to focus on conversational skills in small group classes. We explained why in an earlier article.

We offer different types of Mandarin classes as well and through a series of questions on this page, we hope to help you decide which one is best for you.
