China is a country which has always fascinated me and the thought of visiting was truly a life long dream. My trip to Shanghai and Beijing was absolutely amazing. I loved the combination of ancient history and ultra-modern technology and architecture. I can honestly say that the reality of life in China far surpassed my expectations.
Travelling as a complete beginner in Chinese I was slightly concerned about what to expect when I arrived in China, but there was no need to worry! I was met at the airport by the school’s transfer driver Mr Wu who took me directly to my accommodation and after a long flight it was well worth booking this service.
The school teach the basic language skills you need to survive on a daily basis from the first day of the course and before you know it, you will be giving directions to a taxi driver and ordering your meals in Chinese!
In addition to language lessons the schools arrange some great activities and I was able to join in with Chinese calligraphy lessons, a visit to the Great Wall, dumpling making, meals out with staff from the school and much, much more!
If you have any questions about studying in China, please contact me. I had a great time and am sure you would too!
