What we’ll do

Our team, which includes a native Chinese teacher and myself, an American polyglot, will teach you the basics of Mandarin Chinese as we explore People's Park and the surrounding area.

We will then guide you through the area, pointing out scenic spots before stopping at…

What else you should know

You don't need to have any previous knowledge of Chinese before joining the experience! We recommend downloading the Chinese app WeChat beforehand, as we may use to share notes and other fun info.

What I’ll provide

Equipment
We will prepare helpful notes of all the Mandarin that you learn on the walking tour, which can be shared by Airbnb, email or the WeChat messenging service. We will also provide umbrellas if it is predicted to rain that day.

Where you'll be

We will meet at Exit 11 of the People's Square metro. We will walk around and explore the beautiful People's Park and surrounding side streets, going off the beaten tourist path. We'll end at the best soup dumplings restaurant in Shanghai, where you can hopefully put your new Mandarin skills to use!
