Want to learn Chinese in China but short on time? Hate larger classes? Looking for a group or family class? Small group classes are just the thing.

Start speaking Mandarin in just a few weeks with our intensive small group language classes. More than just a language program, the small group intensive Mandarin classes offer you an unforgettable experience that combines flexible accelerated learning with exciting and interesting Chinese activities.

Enhance your experience by adding in an internship, volunteering or additional travel around China.

Tuan - Australia Internship Program in Beijing

Living and working in Beijing really opened my eyes. The people are extremely nice and helpful. During work, even though there is a huge language barrier, my colleagues do try to communicate with me and the manager was able to organise me to learn from different departments. I was able to make new friends and visit many places in Beijing. Everyone from GAC are very helpful and supportive. Overall I am satisfied with the program. Read More

Chris - United Kingdom Internship Program in Beijing

My time in China has been extremely rewarding. When I arrived, the culture shock was immense but I quickly settled into Chinese life, thanks to Gina and the GAC team. My internship was exactly what I was looking for, and it gave me the opportunity to work in a fantastically social co-working space in the heart of Sanlitun SOHO, a cosmopolitan and refined area.

We ensure programs include a modern and well thought out curriculum to suit both our short-term and long-term students, ensuring everyone gets the best lessons and support during his or her time of study. Our lesson plans are carefully organized, bearing in mind the interest, time frames and learning style of our applicants.

A day in the life of a Participant

It can be hard to imagine what your time in China will be like without first-hand experience. A typical day for our interns is:

  • Start the day at your intern position
  • Wander around the city and explore over lunch
  • Take part in cultural classes set to your level of capability
  • Enjoy a cultural activity and learn more about China
  • Plan your next activities and spend time with your personal tutor
  • Relax and chill with your classmates before a night on the town

 

Here are reasons why you should learn Mandarin Chinese, and more so, why you should come to China to learn it:

  1. Experience one of the world’s oldest civilizations juxtaposed with modern living; get immersed in the rich sights, sounds and flavors of China, they’re unique!
  2. Learn to speak the world’s most spoken language faster than you ever could by learning at home (and get in loads of practice with the locals while you’re here).
  3. Challenge yourself and grow; develop critical thinking and confidence, learn to adapt, get to know yourself better, and develop skills that will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life.
  4. Add an experience to your résumé that will make you stand out from the crowd. Both college and employers value the characteristics you have and develop as an international student and intern.
  5. See some of the world’s oldest buildings, meet endangered pandas, explore the vast regional areas of China that range from mountains to deserts, and get the chance to see record breaking bridges and futuristic architecture.
  6. Make new friends for life that live all over the world (you may even have opportunities to visit them in their countries later on!).
  7. Gain global perspectives from the world’s largest exporter, get to understand international trade and how to do it well.
  8. Many companies across the globe, especially multinational corporations either have a presence in China or do business with China. The demand for English/Mandarin Chinese speakers is high, but the number of people who are fluent in both is low. This opens up amazing opportunities for your future!
