I took part in June's Summer Camp program. These two weeks went by very quickly ! We visited the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City, the Confucius Temple, Beihai Park, and of course, the Great Wall ! We also attended an acrobatic show, an opera, and a tea ceremony. Finally, we discovered the chinese culture through learning chinese calligraphy, painting, knot, taichi, and mahjong... This program definitely immerses you into the chinese culture : We started our day with 4 hours of chinese, followed by many visits and activities in Beijing.
This summer Program is definitely a unique experience which gives you the opportunity to really improve your language skills : the teachers were extremely kind and patient. They were very invested and professional. They mainly spoke chinese, which really helped us improving your listening and speaking. But they can also switch to english if you really struggle. The courses are adapted to every student's level and capacities.
The guide who took us to every site and activity was extremely nice and friendly. She was even the one in charge of some of the workshops : Mahjong and chinese knot, which were among our favourite activities ! She's very communicative, flexible and receptive. She brought us to many different restaurants so that we could experience different local gastronomies (including the very famous Beijing Duck) She's always there to help you solving any problem you may have !
The school always assisted us, from the start, with our visa application, to the very end of our trip. The 24/7 support throughout our stay in China was very helpful and effective. Moreover, we also got to meet people from all over the world during our stay !
For all these very relevant reasons, I definitely recommend this program to everyone who's interested in learning chinese, visiting China or discovering its culture ! It's absolutely worth it and affordable !
