The course makes life easier by helping students communicate with locals. Use of dialect, even a little, is an ice breaker and wins points for the speaker. Dialect is very colorful and gives insight into Shanghai culture, including many customs that no longer exist.
They learn to say "Where are you from?" "I am Shanghainese" and various useful phrases.
Today students are from all over the world, including Western countries, Japan and many other countries.
Some out-of-town Chinese also sit in on the dialect class to help them integrate better into city life.
