One on One class

I had Chinese private lessons, shared apartment housing and an internship when I visited China. The Chinese lessons were with my own private teacher a couple of times every week. Of course there is a chance that one on one tutoring can be plain and almost boring at times but actually I really appreciated the effort that my tutor really put. She chose a great textbook for me to learn from, when you get all that attention from one teacher is really helpful and I know my improvement is very high. We moved at a pace that I was comfortable with, and the timing was really flexible depending on my availability from my internship work. I think that is the best thing about having a private tutor. I learnt early on that reviewing a lesson before actually studying it is helpful considering the Chinese style of teaching, and then extra study time on my own again. My tutor really had an impact on me, she took me to a lot of places so that learning Chinese wasn’t just about looking at a book. With Go Abroad China I got help with most of the preparation before arriving in Beijing, like visa, accommodation and finding a professional tutor; when I arrived in China everything was ready for me so it was easy living there.

Chinese program in Beijing

I studied Chinese in high school before for around 3 years but I still consider myself as a beginner. I was in Beijing for just a month but I feel like from the lessons that I had, my confidence has definitely gotten better; I studied with people who had a higher level than me, but then others seemed a bit more behind than me. In class, we usually poke Chinese with each other, in the beginning it was a little frustrating because I couldn't understand some people very well, but with time it really got better and I got more comfortable.

With time, my comprehension also got better. I began understanding my teacher more clearly and classes were great.

I was in Beijing the entire time and enjoyed it. I still think its an odd city, it has both old and new, beautiful and ugly, open and closed. I enjoyed karaoke during the weekends, talking to taxi drivers in Chinese whenever I took a cab, visiting the Great Wall, going out to eat hotpot, which is very famous in Beijing.

I am happy with the service I got from Go Abroad China, I searched for a long time looking for an affordable program that I could join for a short time and they were able to help me.

Nanjing university Semester Program

I started my chinese language course at Nanjing university in september. Getting my offer letter from the university was so surreal i was so happy and couldn't wait to get on the plane and begin the 12hr flight to China. I got my accommodation sorted by Go Abroad China and completed my registration at the university. I started classes the following day and I must say It was a worthwhile experience all in all.

Shanghai Fudan University Go Abroad China

Applying through Go Abroad China made finding my chinese language course at Shanghai Fudan University an easy process. I applied online through their website and spoke to a very friendly program adviser who assisted me through my visa application. I got all the documents I needed at the right time and was able to book my course for April. My program went smoothly, the classes were always fun with the other 10 international students who studied with me. I made good friends who took me round china. My best memory was visiting the great wall. I had a great time in China would definitely recommend you this program

Great experience at BLCU

I had the opportunity of a lifetime and got to study abroad in BLCU in Beijing China, through Go Abroad China I always knew I wanted to study abroad, but it was an overwhelming thought with all of the options of places to go, figuring out how to make it work with my university and all the little details in between. GAC helped make the entire process smooth and enjoyable. I had an advisor the whole way through who helped me make sure I was as ready as possible for my trip abroad. Once I was there, I had the most amazing 2 months of my life.

At BLCU University Classes began soon after registration and the pace of learning was definitely not what I was used to before. Back at home, sentence structures and phrases that would take me at least a month to fully master, at BLCU University it was just a week’s task. Although in the beginning I felt a bit overwhelmed, after a while, though, things got much better and I adjusted comfortably. One thing I am still reeling about even now is the amount of homework that the Chinese teachers assigned! Now I understand why they say at least six months of serious Mandarin/ Chinese study will lead to accelerated results. The good thing about BLCU University is that they will place you in a class of people who have a similar Chinese ability to you. Learning was fun, interactive and it’s relatively simple to feel motivated if everyone around you is also determined

I had different teachers for each aspect of Chinese study: listening, speaking, reading and comprehensive Chinese. I particularly enjoyed the speaking lessons as they were about group work and small oral presentations in a class of approximately 10 people. It was fun interacting with my classmates coming from different countries, yet all trying our best to communicate in Chinese. One important tip that was surprisingly effective for me was surrounding myself with friends whose English wasn’t so good, this was good in that we were forced to communicate in Chinese and practice everything we learnt.  

I created life long friendships, got to see the most spectacular views and most of all I got to experience a different culture and truly appreciate what they had to offer. I highly encourage everyone to study abroad!

Learning Chinese at BLCU

I moved to Beijing and was there from the summer of 2015 to summer 2016 to learn Chinese for a year. I got help applying for the program through Go Abroad China; they always spoke to me and my mom and explained a lot of things that I didn’t understand in the beginning.

I didn’t live too far from Wudaokou, that’s where BLCU is. At BLCU, I had many classmates, some were exchange students, others were learning Chinese just like me. Everyday in class we were always told to speak Chinese to each other. My main teacher was Ms Zhang and she taught grammar and oral lessons.

During the weekends I would usually relax with my friends, sometimes the people at Go Abroad China would invite us to go and do something together. The staff from GAC that I met were really pleasant and spoke English well. I actually met several other people during this time and we are still in contact. My Chinese has improved a lot after learning for one year.

Peking University Program

I went to china and attended the Chinese language program at PKU through GAC. it was enriching and entertaining,I was taught so many things just through this program.They took me through each and every course and my mandarin speaking level increased. With the cultural activities and trips GAC provided I was able to be immersed into the Chinese culture and fall in love with its history. I now know how to prepare the Chinese delicacies and read the early morning Chinese newspaper on the subway.This program was not only about simply learning mandarin but it helped me develop my inter-personal and professional skills.It also helped me to understand and experience the Chinese culture. It was in all honesty the most beautiful experience of my life.

Beijing Language and Culture University Program

The classes at BLCU were so engaging everyday I came to class I was so happy and eager to increase my knowledge of mandarin. Though at the start it seemed like an impossible task, but the satisfaction of learning new words each day and understanding the Beijing dialect made it an rewarding experience. GAC was really supportive and provided me with a life changing experience in China. GAC organised so many trips, I got to see life action chinese movies, acrobatics and participated in cultural activities. Now I'm back home, i really miss China and I would love to visit China again.

Beijing Language and Culture University Program

I wanted something different, a new experience and a new challenge, so I decided to apply for the Beijing Language and Culture University program in Beijing, China for one year through GAC. This was one of the best decisions i made. From the start of my application, to when i arrived and during my program, GAC were really supportive. They took care and guided me through the application process and when i arrived, they made me feel welcome, comfortable and made sure I had all i needed. I greatly enjoyed my classes at BLCU, the teachers were patient and really made sure I understood the lessons. I was able to grasp a few manadarin words in the first two weeks I started.
There were so many activities GAC organized every weekend, there was a new place to visit each time, I made so many friends too . China is really amazing, i got the challenge and experiance I wanted and im hoping to return sometime in the near future.
