CLI Changes How You Experience China

9/10

The CLI staff are so hands-on and so involved in your studies that you feel comfortable approaching them with questions or concerns whenever they arise. I was thinking in Chinese by the end of my time with CLI and I really think that's the goal. As soon as you begin to think in the language you are learning, that's when you realize you've made a great deal of progress.

How can this program be improved?

I think the most valuable part of my lessons was when I learned new vocabulary that I could instantly apply in daily life. I'd like to see some updated vocabulary lists in the textbooks.

Fantastic Language-Learning Environment

10/10

I was very impressed with CLI from beginning to end. They guide you through the entire process and make it all very simple. Whether you are a veteran traveler or new to the whole concept of international exploration, CLI will have you covered. In terms of language training, I think CLI has nearly perfected the process. They provide one-on-one training with native speakers, many of whom have years of experience. Each instructor then tailors the process in adapting to the unique needs of each student. I learned more studying three weeks at CLI than I did in an entire semester at university. I could not recommend them more.

How can this program be improved?

Better wi-fi.
