STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

We were looking for a language tutor to improve our daughter’s Mandarin Chinese level. Our Sophie Language teacher has been diligent, punctual and made the lesson a fun time that our daughter looks forward to. We provided some material we bought overseas specifically for this purpose which she has supplemented with a series of games and language exercises. There has been a marked improvement in my daughter’s language ability which I have no doubt will continue the longer we work with Sophie Language. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a language tutor without any reservations.
