Review

I just got back from my experience with EF in Shanghai, China- and it was absolutely incredible. You might be confused because of some Beijing reviews, but basically, the school has just transferred to Shanghai, and even though the school is brand new, it is functioning great! The school staff is so friendly and welcoming from the very beginning. With the small class sizes, EF makes learning Chinese practical and enjoyable. After spending 3 months here, I would have never expected that my Chinese would be as good as it is now. I am able to have conversations with the local people and able to survive in China. Before coming to Shanghai, I was a bit hesitant if it would be the place for me... Now looking back I am so happy that I made the decision to step out of my comfort zone and experience this rich international city. The teachers are great with years of experience in teaching Chinese. After class, they even choose to take us out for dinner and karaoke to vamp our language skills to the next level!

With EF Shanghai, every day there is something planned that you can do. It doesn't matter if it's a weekend or a weekday, EF is always planning cultural events, tours, and even trips across China and Asia to get the most of your time here.

EF does a very good job with the accommodations here in Shanghai. My apartment was always clean, and the utilities functioned great.

Conclusion- What I will take most from this experience can be summed up with the word "Networking". It felt like we were the mini United Nations. We all came from different backgrounds and cultures, lived together, studied together, and traveled together. I have created bonds that are worth maintaining through life, and I am beyond great full to have chosen EF. I have become more independent thanks to this experience and I built up a life on the other end of the globe.

This was my #EFmoment, now its time to make your own!
