Learner testimonials

"I've used Rosetta and paid for private training, however only after taking Estella's courses was I able to really take off and start reading and speaking Mandarin. The courses are simple, yet contain much depth. I wouldn't recommend any other place to start learning Mandarin. 谢谢你Estella and the Edx Team!"
