Awesome Yunnan Food with Teachers

Last week, one Keats teacher recommended a great Yunnan food restaurant, Grandmother’s Taste. Here at this restaurant, you can find the best Yunnan cuisine with the lowest prices. The most important is that you can’t find gourmet powder in all the food served. Many people care about their health and refuse to have food with gourmet powder. At Keats cafeteria, we also do not use gourmet powder, so you can rest assured that you can find safe food at Keats. The group dinner at the Grandmother’s Taste can greatly help our students learn about Yunnan food culture.

Once entering the gate of the restaurant, we were immediately attracted by the special decorations of the restaurant. Many cooking tools that are only used in Yunnan were hanged on the wall. The teachers introduced the tools to the students by pointing at the pictures on the wall. You can easily see an old lady in the picture, farming and cooking. That’s why this restaurant is called “Grandmother’s Taste”. The waiter led us to a clean and bright dining area. The students started to practice to read the menu and they surprisingly found that they can recognize many characters. Excitedly chatting with the waiter, the students really enjoyed the way they spoke Chinese. However, they did not realize that Keats teachers have already ordered all the must-eat dishes, waiting for the students to come.

Soon, a table full of tasty and colorful food was in front of the students. Many students did not have the chance to try these food but tried them here: Spicy lotus root, Smash potato, Spicy pork with vegetables, Buckwheat cake, Boil bamboo shoots, Stew donkey meat, Yunnan style snail meat, and so on. Spicy, sweet, and sour, the dinner at Grandmother’s Taste gave Keats students a clearer understanding of Yunnan food.

Lastly, Keats teachers invited our students to evaluate the food they had. The speech was given in Chinese and they exchanged their ideas in Chinese as well. All the dishes were so wonderful that they couldn’t choose the best. Other than the Cross-bridge Rice Noodles, Keats students learned that there are still so many great food out there waiting for them to explore.

I come to Kunming because I think the environment in Kunming is better and I heard that Keats School is better. I like the small group Chinese class because my classmates study hard and our teachers are very good. I like the teaching method of Keats because I like the activities at Keats. I think Yunnan is a particularly beautiful Chinese province.

The best part of the school is the patience the instructors had and the time to focus on the fundamentals like pronunciation. I think it is very easy to skip over those and go to vocabulary. But by learning the pronunciation, I feel like it helped me gain a better understanding of the language.

I think the Chinese learning environment here is great. The teaching methods are also very interactive and fun. What I particularly enjoy here is the fact that my teacher does not stick to the textbook. We spend a lot of time discussing general topics, such as Chinese culture, world news, typical expressions used by local people. We also discuss social and economic topics.

At Keats, I have a lot of opportunities to practice what I have learned. I really like this school, because I can learn Chinese in one-on-one style, so I think this is the best immersion program in China and my teacher is the best teacher. I feel that without my teacher, my Chinese will definitely not improve so much. I’m very happy because, at Keats, I have improved my Chinese significantly.

It doesn’t matter what level of Chinese you have, or even you can start from the zero level. Your teacher will prepare the lessons according to your requirements. The advantage of living in the school is that you will have your tutoring, you will have your private accommodation with your own bathroom and all the meals provided. I highly recommend everybody to actually take the whole package because you get to meet other students.

The visa application was really straightforward, because Keats School helps us a lot with that. Keats has a big emphasis on conversational practice, so we learn a lot of vocabulary and daily life plans which is very convenient for us to go around town and speak with Chinese people which is the whole point of learning Chinese in China.

The teachers at Keats know how to read the students and how to help students learn Chinese language easily. They know the level of the students. I am a slow learner, but they managed to adapt to my learning. They made the class very fun, very exciting. I am pleased that not only I got to learn the culture and the language, but I also got to make amazing friends, really unbelievable, Chinese friends and European friends, American friends, from all over the world.

I found Keats to be very good, teachers are excellent and really take the students seriously. Kunming is the best place to learn Mandarin in China. The environment is awesome, no pollution. The air quality is great, good weather. The people here are very friendly. I come to take classes every day. I feel comfortable studying Chinese at Keats. I learned so many things, although I only studied at Keats for 2 months. I am really satisfied with my teacher. For us foreigners, Keats is the best Chinese school in China. Therefore, I would highly recommend Keats to all of you.
