Student reviews & feedback

To start, very warm welcome and settings for the 2 weeks of lessons. Advice and important help in my daily life in Xi’an. Very good organization in courses both in contents and in excellent training support. Perfect teacher: Chinese courses prepared according to my level and, as it was difficult for me at the beginning, very good balance conduct of vocabulary and grammar items, as well as speaking and listening. Lessons were always friendly and serious and I appreciated very much the face to face option because it’s very helpful and ease to have interactive lessons. I appreciated that during lessons only Chinese speaking and listening were used and keep in mind that I’m not fluent in English. Always helping me, both in Chinese learning and in my visit in Xi’an, I had a very pleasant training course even though I had to work hard. I hope I was a good student. I also very appreciated the lesson at the university, excellent exercise and very interesting.

At the end of 2 weeks, I’m sure my level increased significantly and also I have keys to continue to progress by myself in the same way. I’m already looking forward to coming back in Xi’an in a couple of years and progress again. I enjoyed so much these 2 weeks in Xi’an. In addition to the training course, Xi’an is so beautiful and people is so kind. It was difficult for me to come back to France as I had good times at Xi’an. 我爱西安。 I would like to thanks again my teacher Vera, my family accommodation and all people I met at the school. Everything was for me more than expected.

Very good accommodation [host family]
