I had the best time of my life. great experience that I wouldn't get if I traveled by myself. I spoke no Mandarin at that time but everyone helped me to get by. I met some amazing people that i'm still in touch with. grab this opportunity you won't regret it!

Out of this world

The classes are easy, but what can you say? It is summer school. I would recommend people not to take the Chinese course even if you don't know one lick of Chinese. I suggest you just buy a translator and walk around talking to the people. The food and shopping is amazing and cheap. If you get the chance, you should ride the high speed train to Shanghai. Just for the experience.

I had a blast. There are many places to see and the courses were not that bad.I loved the food and the many different cultural field trips that we were taken to such as the Great Wall and an acrobats show.
