MandarinSpring shares film culture

The Shanghai International Short Film Contest welcomes our partnership with MandarinSpring. At SISFC, we feel film is an important way to communicate culturally through art and community. As a top language training program, MandarinSprings knows it is important to share the culture if you want to truly learn a language. We are happy that they are supporting us in volunteering at events and translating the films entered in the contest to help a wider audience share in the enjoyment of them.
About MandarinSpring
With a history that spans more than 5,000 years, China is one of the world’s oldest and richest continuous cultures. Currently the most populous nation in the world, and its second largest economy, China continues to pave its way into the global arena.
The study of the Chinese language opens the way to different important aspects of the nation such as business, politics, economy and history. More than that, to study Chinese means to study a culture and its people. Whether your goals in China are business and career oriented, or simply to immerse yourself in the wonder that is has to offer, learning the language is half the battle; knowing the culture behind the language is the other.
MandarinSpring has been established under such a background. With a close and direct view of Shanghai Center, we are conveniently located in Xujiahui and Jing’an international financial hub. Our objective is to be the leader of Mandarin school in Shanghai where students have the best opportunity to immerse themselves in Chinese culture and language.
We will adhere to the idea of pursuing excellence. With the efforts of everyone on the team, Mandarin Spring will for sure make its contribution to Chinese education, which we all will be proud of.
Here at MandarinSpring we believe in a balanced approach that offers you both the best in language and cultural immersion. This creates a platform of knowledge and understanding that is crucial for effective communication. Our tailor-made courses are aimed at achieving your goals, and our curriculum constantly revolves around your progress and needs.
