Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

At Keats, I have a lot of opportunities to practice what I have learned. I really like this school, because I can learn Chinese in one-on-one style, so I think this is the best way and my teacher is the best teacher. I feel that without my teacher, my Chinese will definitely not improve so much. I’m very happy because at Keats, I have improved my Chinese significantly.
