Great immersion program for kids! We recently moved to Austin and a search for Chinese immersion programs on google was not very fruitful. Luckily, the few results that came up brought my attention to Marvelous Mandarin. They have a wonderful (and affordable) summer immersion program. My daughter was in one of their 3 week programs and abacus math. Ms. Lan and her staff makes the program fun and interactive. I found my daughter singing and speaking in Mandarin at home, a feat considering I can barely get her to speak her other languages at home. There was no question that she would also be enrolled in their fall program.

Mrs. Lan is just one of the best. I have a seven year old daughter that goes to school at Wells Branch Elementary and attends Mrs. Lan's after-school immersion program. Not only is my daughter learning the language but she is immersed in the culture.

My son attended a couple of classes so far and I have to say that I am very impressed by them. I am a Chinese, so I am very picky about Chinese programs out there. This one is by far the best one I have encountered.

Lu Lu is my daughter in the video“Marvelous Students”, and she only began in late August, 2011! She has been able to learn so much this school year, I can't imagine her being anywhere else. Thanks Ms. Lan!

Our three year-old son is a Little Panda in Ms. Lan's class. Laoshi Lan is patient with all the children and uses a lot of songs, games, and props to keep the attention of the little ones. She also creates recordings that my son begs to hear at bedtime and in the car. I worried that he couldn't learn Mandarin at such a young age with only one hour per week of instruction but we catch him teaching words to his trucks and dolls so I know it is sticking!

I recommend Marvelous Mandarin and Selma Lan to anyone who desires to learn Mandarin and Chinese culture in a comfortable and fun atmosphere. She’s an excellent teacher who’s able to customize her classes based on your own personal goals. Thanks to Selma, I am learning and speaking conversational Mandarin in preparation of bringing my son home from China! She’s a highly educated professional with a great and willing heart to help. I want my son and I to expand our Chinese language skills with Selma. She’s wonderful with adults and children alike!
