High School Study Abroad Program in China
GAC High School Program is geared towards foreigners of high school age (13 to 18 years). The program has been developed to help high school students gain global exposure, develop their critical thinking skills and prepare them for the challenges their future might bring them.
Our High School in China Program combines Chinese lessons with other learning modules relevant to their studies. These are selected in consultation with teachers and parents to ensure a well-rounded study experience. In addition to this, outdoor excursions, day trips to fascinating historical sites, cultural immersion activities all form part of the curriculum and study plan. To round their experience in China off, we help students get involved in community building projects or volunteering projects. Students are encouraged to interact with Chinese people or practice Chinese amongst themselves to accelerate their learning and make it fun!

Lea - United Kingdom Learn Chinese Program in Shanghai
The Chinese school was at an appropriate pace and the content of what we learnt could be applied to daily situations which was effective for practising Mandarin. 4 weeks from learning Chinese intensive classes is supper effective and useful for me. I think I will attend GAC's one semester or year University Chinese program in BLCU in 2018. Read More
Wesley - United Kingdom Internship and Chinese lessons
I first came to China for the language specifically and got the chance to go to Peking Univesity Chinese program and study for half a year. I am now currently interning at Vericant, in Beijing China, an IT company focused on carrying out video assessments for chinese students applying to study abroad.
Applying through GAC was the best decision I made while searching for an internship in China. They arranged everything, from finding my perfect internship company to providing a great accomodation for me and much more. They have really been supportive and have always been available to assist me whenever i encountered any difficulties.Read More
Tai - USASmall Class Mandarin Program
My program was one month long; I took the small group Mandarin Program in Beijing. I would say definitely that my confidence when speaking Chinese has increased even after spending just a few weeks studying in Beijing. I had already learned some Chinese before for 3 years back in high school, so this was just a continuation and a chance for me to visit Beijing. Of course the first two days were difficult in class and just a big mess, but I made friends quickly, my classmates were also cool. The teachers were nice and always taught in Chinese, I was okay with this and was even able to understand Chinese jokes in class. Read More
Catherine - Germany One on One Tutoring Program in Beijing
Really happy about my decision of going to Beijing for 2 months in order to prepare myself for the HSK 4! I am pretty sure that I would have never been able to learn that much if I would have taken private classes in Germany. The fact that I was actually going to my Chinese classes and also living in Beijing made me practice the language a lot. I used to speak Mandarin everyday since I was hanging out with Chinese people! Learning Chinese in its country is a much more effective way for students to impove faster. Since you could practice Mandarin anytime, anywhere and with anyone... Read More
