At the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat we offer Chinese language lessons and calligraphy courses that you can do at your own time and pace. Our teachers are qualified and will tutor you in our meeting room or in the outside garden area on the beautiful banks of the Yu Long River. You can decide which aspect you want to learn whether it be speaking Mandarin, writing and reading the characters or both. You will have one lesson per day for 60 min. The teaching hours are flexible and can be arranged to suit your needs.

Teacher Gary Huang: " I graduated from the English Department of Yulin Teachers' College in 1994. Later, I continued to educate myself. Today I have all the required teacher examinations and graduated at Guangxi University. I worked as an English teacher in Beiliu Teachers' School for eleven years before I came to Yangshuo. In Yangshuo I have taught Chinese as a foreign language for more than four years now with students coming from America, Australia, Britain, Canada, Chile, France and Germany amongst others."

"Helping students to learn Chinese in an easy and interesting way is one of my teaching methods. To memorize Chinese characters with imagination is one of my characteristics. I have prepared many unique learning materials after years of teaching."

Welcome to Yangshuo Mountain Retreat, 阳朔胜地 a riverside gem among Yangshuo hotels. The Retreat was originally conceived as a simple ecolodge where expat friends could escape from the chaos of polluted mega-cities. In the beginning, there was just Angel and a telephone at the front desk. As we grew in popularity, we found it necessary to continually upgrade accommodation, adding wireless broadband and even a pizza oven! But guestrooms have remained simple as when we began: no telephone, no TV, and locally made bamboo furniture. We've stayed true to the authenticity of our original concept, like making our own beds and offering a simple farm-to-table menu with a few western favorites. Our restaurant now has great wines too, but we remain one of the only certified sustainable Yangshuo hotels where guests from around the world can experience the beauty and serenity of Yangshuo Guilin China. We're unique among Yangshuo hotels for our commitment to sustainability and empowering the wonderful local people who run the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat.
