Unlike other language schools, and most university programs, our “out of the classroom” activities focus on meeting
Chinese people, especially the younger generation who are outwards looking and progressive. We also arrange for course attendees

epitomizing the rapid growth and innovation helping to drive China’s economy.

For attendants of our “Study and Travel Program”, we arrange transportation and accommodation in two, or three, historic
destinations around China (typically Beijing, Xi’An, Chengdu) accompanied by a guide and language teacher. The destinations are
chosen to help gain an even deeper understanding of China. Based on our previous experience, attendants improve both their
Mandarin speaking skills as well as their appreciation of China during their journey.
Details of all destinations are listed in the “Cultural Journey” section.
