There's no better way to learn Chinese!

After some time learning Chinese, I was struggling to keep myself motivated to continue putting in the effort to learn the language. That’s when I decided to try out Go East’s intensive program. Within a week I was already feeling the progress in those areas that had kept me stuck for so long.

The program had a sound structure but it also allowed for some flexibility to dive into other areas that each student struggled at. It goes without saying that after so many hours with other students going through the same “pain”, you finish the course not just with a much better Chinese level but also having built great friendships. In overall I am extremely happy with the program, the teachers (they are excellent) and the supportive community Go East has created.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Learning Chinese has a lot to do with getting to know their culture. If you decide to embark on this journey, try to combine class learning with cultural events (tea culture, Chinese painting, etc) and hanging out with Chinese people as much as possible.

Amazing and intense experience!

This summer immersion course was an amazing experience. The intensity of the course pushes you to learn quickly and devote enough time to learning Chinese - which requires a lot of effort and dedication. In just 10 weeks I went from being able to do basic introductions to handwrite paragraphs in Chinese characters and conduct and manage everyday errands and situations, eg shopping, traveling, doctor, slight debate.

All the staff at GoEast really wants to help you achieve your goals as a student and they’re also interested in learning about you as a person - making sure you’re doing well inside and outside of the classroom. I got sick for a big part of the course and the whole staff was nothing but supportive and understanding whenever I couldn’t make it to lesson and had to reschedule. They were always messaging me making sure I was feeling better and taking appropriate care of myself.

GoEast is not just a language learning center, it’s a community, a family! They push you hard with this program, and may seem strict with the curriculum - but they do what’s necessary to help you achieve your language goals!

I miss them all dearly
