The ‘Hong Kong’ of the north…

Dalian is a seaport city in Liaoning Province in China’s northeastern region. It is the second largest city in the province and is now renowned as one of the most important and busiest financial, shipping and logistics hubs for Northeast Asia.

Dalian is a city with quite a remarkable history; it survived the early occupation by the British, Russian and Japanese forces, and today, some of the old Soviet-style architecture remains. Nowadays Dalian has transformed into a city with a strong economy; it ranks as the eighth economically strongest city in China.

Besides being a port city, its other important industries include machine manufacture, petrochemical, electronics and oil refining. Recently, Dalian has attracted a steady flow of investment and has a considerable influx of scientific and technological human resource. These factors make it an excellent location for our Chinese internship programs.

With an abundance of educational institutes and a steady tourism sector, Dalian provides an excellent opportunity for anyone pursuing Mandarin Chinese study; it is a dynamic city that attracts plenty of foreign individuals who come to learn and better understand Chinese, some come on study tours and others on an intensive Chinese language program.
