The minimum course length is two weeks, with 20 Chinese lessons a week. The course runs at a variety of levels, and all of our native Chinese teachers are experienced in teaching Chinese as a foreign language. So regardless of your current level of Chinese, you will soon be speaking the language with confidence!
If you decide upon the Full Camp option, you will benefit from total immersion in the Chinese language, living with fellow language students in our school’s residential centre. The complex is around 20 minutes away from the school by public transport, in an area with many restaurants and shops.
Rooms come in different sizes and styles, and you will have your own room or share with one or two other international students, who will be the same gender and around the same age as yourself. The apartments all have TVs, air-conditioning, fully-equipped kitchens and washing machines.
Or if you’ve come to China with your family, you will return to them each day after your Chinese lessons.
Away from the classroom, all activities are supervised. For those students living in the residence, a monitor will stay with you in the apartment at the weekends and during the evenings, always on hand if you need anything. Slightly older students are afforded more freedom and don’t have monitors living with them.
During your time on this Chinese course for Young Students, you can really experience China and Chinese culture! Four times a week, afternoon activities such as Chinese calligraphy classes, martial arts, Chinese cookery and visits to acrobatics shows allow you to appreciate Chinese traditions.

In the evenings, movie nights, barbeques and parties give you the ideal opportunity to get to know other language students from all over the world! Once a week, full-day trips will reveal the magic of China to you! Our excursion to the Great Wall of China is particularly popular with students.
