Our 1 month gap year program is ideal for those that are looking to combine some fun-filled traveling with Mandarin tutoring. The program starts in Beijing but most of the traveling will take place in the beautiful Yunnan province in South West China. Some of the places visited include Kunming, Dali, Lijiang and the ancient town of Shaxi.
The schedule includes Mandarin tutoring in the morning, followed by various culturally related activities in the afternoon, such as Chinese cooking, visits to Confucius temples, tours of some of the ancient towns, Yunnan minority dance shows, and so on. A fully qualified teacher will accompany students everywhere, thus providing you with a unique opportunity to practice what you've learned outside the classroom, but with a teacher on hand to provide any necessary assistance.
The 1 month program is ideal for those looking for an introduction to the Chinese language.
