    I enjoyed having a mix of both Chinese from the book and exercises to make us learn the material more quickly. I learned a lot very quickly and am happy with my course.

    The teachers were very friendly, helpful and patient. They don't teach only the language. They also talk about their culture, eating and their life. That was very interesting and helpful. My room was big and clean. It was directly in the school building, so very comfortable in the morning. In the kitchen I could find all I needed for this short time. I was only 10 minutes from shops, restaurants, banks and the beach.

    The director of education and both my teachers did their very best to suit my needs and interests. Consequently, I am well satisfied with the progress made. I had a single bedroom ensuite on the floor above the school and was quite pleased: It had everything I needed (working toilet and shower with piping hot water, fridge and coffee making facilities, telephone and internet). It was spacious and quiet.

    The school was very accommodating to my language level, and went out of their way to make sure I had appropriate teaching. I believe it was highly effective and my spoken Chinese is much better than it was when I arrived!
