I had studied Chinese for about 4 years at a Chinese school. Then I stopped because I had too much work to do. At first, I thought it was such a chore because my parents are like “Learn Mandarin, learn Mandarin,” but now I think it’s kind of important because China is becoming really powerful. I chose NextStepChina because they help you with a lot of things like the Visas which were very confusing. Also they gave a lot of guidance with that and the details on housing and tuition was very good. Just the whole package seemed really good compared to other ones I’ve heard of.
