My China Experience!

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!

You can see photos from my trip on Facebook.

If you have any questions about studying in China, please contact me. I had a great time and am sure you would too!
