Living in Beijing and studying at The Hutong School12/11/2014How could this program be improved?
Definitely cleaner apartments (cockroach free!), better lesson plans & guidance and more activities.Response from Hutong SchoolDear Rhea, Many thanks for your review. As we always strive to keep improving our services, we mostly appreciate any feedback! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Hutong School and I hope you still keep speaking Chinese! As for the apartment, cockroaches unfortunately are inevitably present in Asia. We were however aware of the problem, and the apartment has been made cockroach free. As you mention, we can improve our lesson plans & guidance, I touched base with our education staff in Beijing, and they didn't receive any complaints from you regarding this during your stay. We would be happy to know why you were unhappy with your lesson plan and the guidance you received so we can make improvements for our future students. Feel free to shoot us an email anytime (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks again for the review Rhea and wishing you all the best! -Haike
Shanghai branch11/14/2014How could this program be improved?
Probably accommodation system could be improved.
A little minority of people, which i belong with, is financially self-supporting and i believe that there's should be a wider choice of sharing-house. I woulnd't mind to share a double room if its costed less. Simply as that, there's people who don't really mind sharing a room and save a bit of money for the everyday life as there's a lot of people asking for more privacy.
My time at Hutong School11/14/2014Response from Hutong SchoolDear Ella Est, Many thanks for your nice review. I can speak for the entire team of the Shanghai office when I say it is (has been) a great pleasure having you here! All our apartments are equipped with basic cooking utensils, but we're indeed looking to expand them. Lazy student or not, don't give up on your Chinese language learning, whatever your next move will be after finishing your internship! Best, Haike

The accommodation is really not as modern as the website states. The first apartment I was put in when I arrived was quite depressing. After explaining the situation to Hutong, they showed me another apartment and let me decide if I wanted to move there. Glad I did, it was much better, looked like a home instead of a run down warehouse.
