“My teacher is so much fun and does a great job of keeping her students engaged... She also explains grammar concepts in thoughtful ways and uses additional resources, not just the textbook.”

“The teaching style is geared toward Western learning standards, which makes learning accessible. No drills, no rote memorization. Instead, the teachers are patient and teach practical communication skills. Culture Yard’s technique and attitude are second to none. Highly recommend!”
