GAC-Testimonial-Tuan

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

GAC-Testimonial-Chris

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.

Overall I enjoyed my experience with GAC. I was pleased with the amount of knowledge I learned and the new experiences I went through during my internship as a financial analyst at a finance company which GAC found on my behalf. The internship made me realize how fast things move in the finance industry and I feel it has prepared me well for the transition from university to the work force. Read More

Why Study Abroad Over Summer?

First-time travelers may find studying abroad for a full semester or a year daunting. For those who aren’t brave enough to spend all that time away from home, we have another great option! Give it a go with a short-term summer program (but be careful, you might get bitten by the travel bug and want to do it again!).

If you’re not a first-time traveler, but love the summer or have a break over summer perfect for a study abroad program, then this program is for you too!

Accelerated Learning
Despite their shorter time length, the summer programs still focus on mastering Chinese. If you join our summer program with a willingness to work hard and learn, you’ll walk away with the equivalent of a semester of Chinese language studies under your belt.
See the Sights and Sounds of China concise
You’ll be able to make use of your free time, exploring around you, going on guided tours to see the famous and not so famous landmarks China has on offer. Use the weekends to visit neighboring cities. It'll be a fun yet busy trip, no doubt - there's much to see and do (and eat!).
Budget Friendly

Budget Friendly
A summer study abroad program in China is a great way to maximize your Mandarin studies on a lower budget while being able to keep up with your regular academic commitments at your university or high school back home. In short, if you've only got a few weeks to study abroad next summer, just do it.
Learn New Skills
There is no doubt about the fact that time abroad, living like a local in another country, changes you in good ways! You’ll get to know yourself better; you’ll learn how to adapt to a new and different culture; you’ll gain confidence and independence; you’ll gain global perspectives; you’ll learn new things that reflect well on your future résumé and college applications. According to an article in The Financial Times, knowing more languages and having an international mindset is an asset for the increasing number of companies who are operating seamlessly across borders.  
Staying Ahead of the Game
At Go Abroad China we value the experience you’ll have while you’re here. That’s why we regularly review our programs, compare them with our top competitors and survey our customers. We work hard to ensure our programs are the best available for the price we offer. If you have any suggestions to help make programs more exciting, we’d love to hear them! The benefits of spending your time in summer are numerous, but the most important one is the experience you’ll have and the friends you’ll make. These memories will last a lifetime.

Our language exchange program with native Chinese speakers as well as the opportunity to practice Chinese in your daily activities further speeds up your mastery of the language.

Other Study Abroad in Summer Options

Not everyone wants to study in a formal class environment, even if it’s a small class. Others may find that they need even more flexibility with when they can learn, like business executives, busy individuals or Interns. It may be that you want to learn only specific aspects of the language, rather than follow a structured class curriculum. If that’s you, then private Chinese lessons may be just the thing; lessons customized to your requirements, availability and learning goals. Bring Mandarin to life and learn to use it sufficiently for your needs in the setting of your choice, with a personal tutor who is experienced in teaching Chinese to a foreigner.   STUDY ABROAD ONE-ON-ONE TUTORING PROGRAM
