Great Mahjong Workshop
Jan 2020 • Solo
A very fun class. I thought Mahjong was a very complicated game, but Cheryl broke it down so it was very easy to pick it up and learn. Enjoyed it immensely.

Very friendly and informative !
My husband and I were looking for something local and a little “off the beaten path” to do during our time in Beijing and we felt that learning some mahjong would help us learn a little bit about Chinese culture.

Christina was extremely responsive and easy to coordinate with, her English is fluent so I ended up asking her other questions as well. Our instructor Cheryl was very sweet and a great teacher.

We loved the few hours we spent with both of them and would highly recommend! They are both extremely warm and friendly, and ended up providing us with some great tips for our time in Beijing!

Great introduction to mahjong
Nov 2019 • Couples
Culture Yard’s two hour Mahjong Workshop is a great way to learn the basics needed to get started. Cheryl is really a good teacher and her passion for mahjong rubs off very quickly. Backed up by Christina from Culture Yard who made sure everyone felt comfy Cheryl quickly taught us enough to start trying on our own, and we managed a couple of rounds under her guidance. Even my wife who isn’t a gamer and was all but enthusiastic beforehand quickly was into it. Actually the two of us went straight from the workshop at Culture Yard down to the Silk Market and bought our own set.
If you’re wondering if Mahjong is anything for you Culture Yard’s workshop is definitely the way to find out.

Had a great time at class. We continued to play rounds 3 times after class. Would have stayed longer if I wasn’t so hungry. I would recommend this for anyone traveling to or living in Beijing
