What did Our Students Say
Liam Jake, LAMBERT
Combined with the beautiful campus, international setting of Shanghai and your own determination, Donghua is the best place to call home whilst you study. The passion from the teachers is matched only by their teaching ability, tailoring the speed of the class to your needs. Using class discussions, role plays and activities (including day trips!), the teachers use class time wisely, to maximise your learning experience. Coming to Donghua has been life changing and I am very proud to say I learned Chinese in the heart of Shanghai.

Donghua is more of a family. This is where you feel welcomed, meet international friends not to forget the warm hearted teachers. It's the best place to study Chinese, the teaching methods, indoor learning games, outdoor activities, group work and the course books are very standard. All the co-workers are really helpful in ensuring the learning environment is conducive and secure. I am amazed by the beautiful compound, it gives you a feeling of staying even a bit longer to expound on Chinese culture.
DHU has a good location, all the necessary facilities are in the campus. The personal and teachers are very kind and easygoing, you'll feel like at home. After first course you'll have good basics for your daily life in Shanghai. So I would like to tell everyone who wants to apply to DHU - don't doubt, sign up, enjoy studying process and become the part of this big family.

Studying Chinese at Donghua University has by far been the best year of my life. The teachers here are very passionate about their job and they make everybody feel involved during classes. They understand that you cannot learn Chinese only by reading books so we also spend a lot of time having class discussions, playing games, working in groups and doing student presentations. This way we get to practice our oral Chinese a lot, which is one of the things that separates DHU from many other universities in Shanghai. I wouldn’t want to be any place else than here!
We would like to learn something about you to serve you better.
