Yes, I recommend this program

Challenging but at the same lovely stay in the vibrant Beijing

I stayed in Beijing for 6 months and it was an amazing experience. Totally different culture, people and their approach to others. It was a big challenge which is not easy, but nothing is easy in life, right? During the work in the hotel, my colleagues was mainly Chinese and it was challenging not only because of language, but also because of their way of thinking. I knew that it will be tough, but on the other hand I will be more flexible in working with different people.
The ImmerQi is doing a great job with providing the assistance in any kind of situations, anytime you need. It is the example how the company suppose to work for the customers. I feel like I am not only the customer, but the being among friends. Everyone is willing, even they ask me why I don't need so much support from them, hehehe :) We are going often to meet with other interns as well as staff from ImmerQi, so it makes me feel as much comfortable as I can. If I feel lonely I just call Jodi ( hahaha). :)
The Beijing and life in here is remarkable, people are very straightforward, if they like you they will smile to you and say hi, if not they are not going even to look at you. It is very cosmopolitan city where I find many different kinds of restaurants, bars, clubs. I feel it is becoming more western city, which is good and bad. On one way, sometimes I don't feel it is truly China and Asia, but on the other hand, the cultural shock is easier to handle.
Totally, the program assisted me in everything, they provided me with anything I need to settle in China and get used to it as soon as possible. Also, it is a good opportunity to get experience professionally and as a tourist, dealing with diverse people, travelling around, experiencing China and participating in the events I like. I found here everything I need to live and reach my career goals and ImmerQi was one of the main supporters and advisers deciding my future. I will be always thankful to them.
