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
