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.

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!).

Learn Chinese One-on-one
Volunteer in China
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

For many years, Go Abroad China has been contributing to the betterment of Chinese children living with special needs and disabilities, children in orphanages and those that attend poor schools for migrant children. As an international volunteer, your contribution will undoubtedly improve not only their situation physically, but more importantly in their psychological state of mind as opportunities like these are not very common for them. The memories are bound to last for a lifetime for all sides involved.
