I loved this program, and I didn’t think I would forget this fantastic experience in China. Hoping for a jump start, I made this bold decision to come to China to take a small-group Chinese lesson for 3 months. I’ve been learning Chinese as the second language at my school. But I have to say I can’t speak well without many Chinese-speakers around. Here I got Chinese lessons totally different from home. I was able to make my own sentences and converse with my classmates and teachers in Chinese. And moreover, there were many activities and outings organized by GAC. I made a lot of friends from other countries as well as China. I learned Chinese much sooner than I expected. I could easily converse with the Beijing locals now. I guess I would come to China again. Lastly, Cassiel was very helpful with the application process, visa, enrollment, class schedule and accommodation.
