Go Abroad China Save my study pathway

My name is Mark im 24 years from Melbourne Australia. My program was Shanghai Fudan University - one Academic year's language study program.

My experience was fabulous with GAC. I Was so worried and frustrating because I have no idea about China and this is my first international flight, but since I arrived in Shanghai until I finished my program, I didn't fell im international at all.

The staff are extremely friendly and treat me with manners. Sometimes they spend more time trying to help me and give me advice. I would like to say big thank you to Serena, She helps me so much even after the working hours she helped me to secure a job and give me a hand in a huge country like China, I won't be able to survive a day without her.

The company resect all the promises between me and them with high manners.

The homestay was a great idea, I lived with a nice family and I was so satisfied because I didn't fell im different from them, They are nice and so generous to me and they have very high consideration about the young people.

GAC help me as well to get a job for 1 year in another company and they help as well to be an extra reference in the country.
I would definitely recommend Go abroad to China because they are very helpful and very kind and friendly people

Best trip in China

My parents really wanted me to take some time off from college, travel and get some wholesome experience before I went into university. While searching through the Internet for the perfect destination and experience package, I came across Go Abroad China. I discussed with them and within a month I was presented an offer. The classes were taught by native teachers who were really fluent in English, which was a great surprise to me. The classes were engaging and we even got to go on trips organized by the university. It was really great to know that the university cared for the well being of its international students. I had a great experience in China and Im grateful to Go Abroad China for their great service.

Chinese language course at BLCU

As a Chinese major I had to travel to China to get experience the China experience and develop my skill more by practicing my Chinese speaking and writing there while learning more about the chinese culture. The program was great for the cultural experiences and the classes helped to compliment my overall experience. I went with the goal of improving my Chinese and that is what I did I gained fluency in Mandarin Chinese and made great friends. Overall, I discovered a city that I would love to revisit in the future. It was definitely worthwhile.

Tsinghua University International Chinese Language and Culture Center

I visited Beijing last summer and studied at ICLCC (Tsinghua University International Chinese Language and Culture Center). Prior to my visit I had no knowledge about mandarin but I was really eager to learn.

In my classes there were a total of 20 students. My subjects were Reading, Speaking, and Listening. I enjoyed the grammar class more as the classes were really beneficial and engaging with weekly dictations, homeworks, and quizzes. Before our classes began we were provided with materials such as textbooks, audio CD, flashcards, chinese songs and slides which were used during our classes.

My only issue was that though most of us were just beginners, the teachers assumed we all had some knowledge about Chinese language and would tend to rush through our lessons. But the text books and ads we received were easy to understand and read which helped a lot.

In conclusion classes were great, I had a great time and i was able to improve my Chinese Language especially during my stay in China.

Shanghai Jiaotong University

It was a while back when I was in Shanghai studying Chinese at Jiaotong University for the summer. My program provider was Go Abroad China who were quite accommodating because I would only be in Shanghai for two months and they literally handled everything for me: the most important which was organising my study visa, my flat in Shanghai, which I shared with 2 other flatmates and showing me which bus to take to school. Thankfully I didn't live too far away from campus and didn't even need to change bus lines or any of that. Otherwise it would have been quite a hassle to learn the different buses.

Now about my Chinese classes: I barely spoke Chinese when I first arrived in Shanghai, and my class, imagine 20 young people coming from different countries learning Mandarin from Monday to Friday - for me it was full time school in the summer! Life in Shanghai was amazing and crazy! I had so much fun living there, getting close to my flatmates and other classmates. A couple of times I also hit it up with the rest of the people in the Go Abroad China group.

I came to China as a total beginner in Chinese language, by the time I left after 2 months I could manage approximately 200 characters!

learning Chinese in Shanghai

I spent two months studying in Shanghai, it was great, sometimes tough, other times fun! I had classes Monday to Friday meaning that every week I had 20 hours of Chinese with a taichi lesson once a week usually in the afternoon. Of all the things I learnt, taichi class was always my favourite one, until I found out we would have a test and it would be graded. Surprisingly I actually didn't do bad in that test, but i also suspect my teacher was a bit lenient.

Anyway let me talk about the important classes then:
I had grammar class every morning, some days it would be followed by speaking/oral class, other days it would be reading & writing...there was a whole timetable. I must admit that my different teachers (I had 3) were generally great but like any other will not be happy with unfinished assignments or slacking in class.

I know everyone probably always says this after coming to China, but my Chinese really did improve significantly.

Fun: living in Shanghai was really great for me, I hung out with my classmates, went to the dinner organised by GAC and visited some nice spots courtesy of our guide from GAC. She was the one I always called if I needed some help with Chinese or something went wrong in the apartment etc.

studying at BLCU

I had a great experience with GAC and BLCU. Before coming to China I couldn't speak Mandarin at all and had in mind that it was the most difficult language ever. Now, I can have small daily conversations with Chinese people and I am so proud of myself! Those 2 months in Beijing were very interesting because I got to live with a Chinese family and experienced the real Chinese life! The family that I was living with was very comprehensive and would let me go out with my friends without any problem. The father and also the kid could speak good English. The whole family was adorable. They once invited me for a weekend to Xian. I really felt like I was part of the family and that is why I will certainly keep in touch with them!
