A good Mandarin School-recommendations pls!
Can anyone recommend to me a good Mandarin learning school/center for beginner's courses? Can you please tell me the rates as well?
Is it possible to take these courses for 2-3 weeks? I am still in the process of making my move to HK with my boyfriend but in the mean time I will be coming and back forth for now. I will be in HK next month for 3 weeks and I thought I can learn Mandarin to make better use of my time.
Lastly, do I need to obtain a student's visa to take these short and introductory language courses in HK?

There are many good Mandarin learning centers in HK. For group lessons, the fees will be approx. 150 per hour, for private lessons, the fees will be around $350/per hour, because both the center and teacher need to earn money. Normally, you will also need to pay in advance for a package.
You don't need to get a student's visa to take these courses.
If you don't mind learning from a private tutor, you may wish to browse the website below:

You can also check out Mandarin School - http://www.mandarinschool.com.hk/
They have trial classes - private instruction, that you can try out and their teacher is superb. I learned a lot from the first class and it's worth a try.

There's also GlobalCitizen which offers many language classes and particularly chinese. It's located in central, but they also offer courses "virtually", meaning you don't need to go there physically but only need a computer and internet to follow a class, thourgh an avatar. It's a pretty cool system. The staff there is very friendly too, so don't hesitate to contact them. Here's the website: http://bilingualizer.com/
