China

Language & Cultural Tour in China

Mandarin Immersion Programmes

Magnificent China is the world’s most populous country. Its vast landscape encompasses grassland, desert, mountain ranges, lakes, rivers and 14,500km of coastline. Beijing, the ancient capital, mixes modern architecture with historic sites including sprawling Tiananmen Square. Its largest city, Shanghai, is a skyscraper-studded global financial centre. We offer experience based, interactive learning that combines the practical use and study of Chinese and educational travel within China. Our focus is on developing communication skills, building speaker confidence, and the ability to use Mandarin in real-life settings. Students also develop a much deeper appreciation of the culture, history and country. We want to offer something different, an integrated travel based study program that combines well-led language classes with visits to China’s best-known sites.
